Calendar Can’t Be Right


I am sorry, but how can it be mid-February already?
According to my records, I am supposed to be hiking in less than25 days. Can the world ( and time) please slow down? It can speed up once I am on the trail. I still have to file my taxes, give my husband last-minute instructions, find my banking passwords for him and locate my sewing kit.

I feel much more confident with the actual walking steps than the steps necessary to leave my home for this 4 month “walk in the park”. Don’t get me wrong, I am still very much excited and eager to begin this adventure, but these non-hiking details are a bit overwhelming.  

Thankfully, I have friends that have stepped up to help me with these last minute logistics.
