This-n-That Thursday--Traveling While Aging

You know you're getting there when...
  • You spend two whole days deciding whether or not to roll or fold your clothes.
  • You cannot find any more ziploc bags to put toiletries in so you opt for a doggie-poop-bag solution. Unused, of course.
  • You wonder how many magnifying mirrors you can safely pack.
  • The same with tweezer products of all manner.
  • Snappy flat shoes become your obsession.
  • You pack more meds than make-up.
  • You wonder how long it will take your bodily functions to catch up when you get there. Sorry. But I know you agree.
  • You are counting on your cute wraps to draw the eye away from your upper arm issues.
  • You are thrilled to be able to bring as much Sudafed as the CVS would allow you to buy to your hostess. There isn't any in Spain.
  • You are just thrilled. Period.
I'll be reporting from the scene....

Oh you will love Spain. My son lived in Madrid for two years going to school and working. I have a very good friend who lives in Granada and her sister lives in Madrid. Her parents live in a coastal town called Almeria where my friend grew up. Enjoy and have some Paella for me. Oh and the Tapas are the best.
