Yesterday we moved the last things to the apartment, that is, the last of the things we plan to move ourselves until next Monday when we go down with the moving guys. That gives us today to take a breath, do a few small errands and relax before the four-hour-drive into the heart of Chicago tomorrow. 

I did not expect us to have a day off from what has become a daily trip to Madison for the past week, hauling things up to the apartment and unpacking, then taking bins and boxes back to the car and truck and driving back to a mess of a house. I am grateful for this small mercy of a break!

In other news, Tom took Sundance to the vet yesterday morning, and she -- Sundance, not the vet -- is responding well to the thyroid medication. She has gained half a pound and her thyroid level is in the low normal range instead of way over the top. 

Breathe in. Breathe out. Breathe in. Breathe out.

Just keep breathing.

Dear Michael and Tom,

May your journey to Chicago go smoothly. Have a good Christmas! And when you return, may your actual move be problems free.

Thank you for the blog which is great.

breathing is good, especially slow, quiet and deep.

Don't hyperventilate. Glad you got a one-day reprieve.
