this, that and some of the other

its thursday
 hooray for friday eve

 getting closer to the move
 packing a few things 
every day
 so when i get back from amsterdam

 you didnt know
 i was going to amsterdam

 i am

 next week
 my wonderful travel friend mary and i
are off on another adventure

 i dont know
 if you know
 i have long wanted to visit amsterdam

 this trip has been in the planning stages
 for many months

 we wanted to go the second week in november 
my boss
the move downtown
 wouldn't happen
 as scheduled
 he asked me 
to go
move date

 of course
 the move is happening on schedule 

in fact
 next tuesday
 when i am in amsterdam 
move coordinators
 that would be 
 along with 5 other members of each move group
 are being given
 a tour
the new offices 

not know
 in my heart of hearts
 this would happen

 i did


 i also knew that flu shots 
were sure to be given
 when i was away

 on that score
 i was wrong

 they were given 

 at 3:45 i discovered
 they were being given from 11 until 4 

quick as a bunny
 i called someone up in the hr department
 to get in under the wire
 in fact
 the flu shot person was packing up to leave

could i come up right now
yes i could
i zipped upstairs 
she gave me the shot

i have also been promised a tour 
of the new offices
the week before the move
 when i am back in the office

the best news 
 no more hissing is happening

 i guess
 harry is all hissed out

 now annie can come hang with us
 in the living room

 i even got her her own scratching pad

you can see 
has usurped it
