So, I haven't been able to put up another honeymoon post because *someone* keeps taking his laptop to work. Waah, I need my computer to type things with! Waah! (Oh, hi, husbear! Didn't see you there.)
So, we leave for Florence the day after tomorrow. I'm not nearly as freaked out as I usually get before big long-distance travel of this sort... but I'm not sure if that's because it's my fourth time overseas (but who's counting?) or if it's because the trip is so short. We've pretty much got everything ready - I finally got my boots situation taken care of, though I wasn't able to get the red boots I've been lusting after. Apparently, I have little stick calves on which I precariously balance my giant butt. (yes, I went shopping for pants yesterday, so I'm a little fragile.)
I've gotten out all of the luggage and packing cubes and envelopes and tickets and passports and moneybelts and books and coats that we'll be needing, so that's good, but we still need to get our clothes all sorted and packed. I'm leaving work early tomorrow, just in case anything comes up.
I hope to have one last picture-filled post up before we go, since I'm sure we'll come back from Florence full of pictures. If this doesn't happen, my bad.
I think the trip will be pretty productive; we have an appointment set up with the school and with one housing agency, and we have inquiries in to two more that we'll hopefully hear back from before we go. Also, the husbear's mama plays bridge with a guy who has a sister who lives just outside of Florence with her family, so we'll be meeting her, her son, and her son's girlfriend for dinner on Sunday. It will be nice to maybe meet a few people who live there.
The plan, right now, is that we'll get in on Sunday, drop our bags at the hotel, and go to the Accademia to see David. When we go on trips like this, we like to immediately go do something that really highlights the fact that we're in a new place, so this should be great.
Now, I just hope the hotel has our reservations....
