suitcases out

Today I actually began to pack.
We have been asked many times “are you packed yet?”
The answer was we were gathering things and putting things aside.
I put stuff in a pile and later take it out.
but today we actually took out suitcases suitcase & stuff
measured to see if they would qualify as carry-on.
Or whether they would have to be checked through to Ireland .
The reality of sabbatical is upon me.
I am leaving home.
Something I have not done very often.
I am determined to finish packing, but,

I get distracted by the Olympic games.
Watching the skill and composure of young athletes focus, struggle,  and accomplish unbelievable feats is inspiring.

I wish one of them would come and help me pack!
