So how's the packing come along?
Well to be honest...I haven't done that much.
But I did schedule appointments for Gracie to get her International Health Certificate at 7 Am so I can drive 2 1/2 hours to Columbia to get it endorsed by the USDA the same day, so that it can get to the Brazilian Consulate since it has to be there before 10 days from the date of the vet issue. So that they can issue me a permit for Gracie which she has to enter Brazil before 30 days or the permit expires. Talk about deadlines.
Now I just need to call the airline because I am flying on May 26th. If the temperature is above 85 degrees she can not fly with me. She can not be carried on with me because it is an international flight. So she has to be checked. On May 26th I will be flying to the Dallas Fort Worth Airport, then to the Miami Airport, then on to Belo Horizonte. Make sense to you? Me either. But I know that both of those places are relatively warm (note use of sarcasm there)...and I am pretty sure I have a good chance of it being over 85 degrees. So I am worried. Very worried. So I am going to call the airlines to see if they have any suggestions.
This is just ONE of the many complex issues to try and solve. It is SO fun.
The next one of shipping. Ugh. But it's getting there. I may need to drive down to Miami...anyone game?? Pleeeeeaseeeeeeeeeeeeee. *sigh* This is why a girl needs friends.
Anyway I wanted to humor you tonight and thought I could mainly because I know how weird I am.
I love my DVD's. I don't know why. In fact I am protective over them. Again, I don't know why. I don't like people to borrow them. (Like today, opened up an Enchanted DVD case, it has How the Grinch Stole Christmas DVD in it...WTH) I don't like anyone to take the shrink wrap or sticky security tape off except myself. No one knows how.
So here is my plan to ship them. Since I am worried someone is going to open the box and steal them!! (No one has given me the impression that this would happen...this is a product of my overactive imagination!)
1. Put all DVD's into a CD/DVD holder.
2. Make Inventory list and leave in computer. Number DVD pages. (Did I mention there are over 300?)
3. Put all DVD boxes into a box to be shipped.
4. Put DVD's in suitcase to come with me aboard the plane.
That's right. I am shipping empty boxes. Assuming I have the room. Though the DVD cases may even trump the mattress.
Just Kidding! (But I really do have a sinful love of DVD's)
