Two Weeks to Day Zero

The two weeks leading up to our flight are a COMPLETE blur. We had to move out of our condo, transfer it to a new tenant, live out of a suitcase, see all of our friends and hit all of our favorite restaurants. We ate and drank so much that I’m pushing maximum density. Dinners and drinks at Le Pichet, Sitka and Spruce, Shiro’s, Marjorie, Casuelita’ s, Feierabend, and many dinners at home filled us to unhealthy levels.

On top of that, I felt that my seldom used liquor bar needed to be emptied, ya know, because it didn’t make sense to store all of that stuff. Oh yea, there was no reason to store my whites either so we needed to drink those as well…and the 3 bottles of champagne. In the end, we didn’t empty everything, but we did make a dent and I still feel it in my belly today. The whites are gone and so is the champagne and some of the liquor, but the cheap whiskey lives on….and my father in-laws’ for another day.
