Laugh, how we laughed, ate until I thought I would require a crane to load me into the plane; and did WE drink!!! Walked miles, the Apean Way, Collusium, Forum, Circus Maximus, Vatican City,shopping....bellissimo. The Westin Excellsor was gorgeous, Madonna and the kids wern't in residence but do stay THERE, as well as little old us.....and then there was the art....tears and more tears, never thought I'd see it and when I did my heart nearly exploded it was so full. Heathrow was an almost insurmountable obstacle with its endless security. My body,thanks to my new hip was patted down more times and better than any doctor has ever done. The men are....primo bellissimo....and so friendly! We were nearing 30 hours of awake time when we went through the last security check at Heathrow and were pulled aside and given a new seating assignment....FIRST F..KNG CLASS. We had planned to sleep but decided this may never happen again so enjoyed the champagne, wine, food, attention for the full 11 hrs. Spoiled forever now for economy travel... It was all, say it with me...bellissimo.

Today I came down from the Migraine high/sugar stupor and was alert enough to note I had nothing hanging in my closet. Dave was wearing his usual black pants and Navy blue uniform so he was safe. Dula was asleep in a sunbeam with a small puff of fluff hanging out of her mouth, remnant of a barney, not her.Sarah and her clean sweep crew were still in Edmonton working against a time limit as Dwayne would be home in 4days 6 hours and 45 minutes. They were safe. WTH, I was only away from my watch for 20 maybe 24 hours and in the room where the missing clothes lived, surely I would of heard them leaving. My usual demeanor of calm, optimistic joy was gone...Dave was responsible and I called him on it!!! Later after he directed me to the spare room where all my clothes were heaped on the bed, I recalled my fit of frantic packing frustration just moments before the feeding frenzy then migraine hit. I'm going back to bed.

Leaving for Rome soon, hopefully after my tendonitis clears, I find a suitable suitcase and my black pants fit. Family are nearing trip saturation levels and now just madly start channel surfing when I enter a room or create their own telephone static and hang up. Today, I will try on my vintage collection of black pants and make a decision. Dave started humming to himself last week so seems quite distressed I am soon to leave him on his own. Overall,I need to get on with it.
