I was sitting in a meeting today and I started writing out a list of everything I needed to get done before our trip. It included stupid things (like sweep the house, hook up the sprinkler, take my grandma’s Avon order to her, post a few blogs in advance.) And then there were a few things like wash some clothes and pack. (And let me just add that this was a really boring meeting and I hate going to it. I never have anything to contribute and nobody ever asks me anything, so I generally make lists.)
It’s 9:45 and I’ve crossed off most of the items on my list! I couldn’t do the sprinkler because of the massive storms that have been rolling through most of the day (we had a tornado warning this morning! I walked 3 blocks to work in a freaking tornado warning.) I need to go by the ATM in the morning and packing the cooler and the car are the last things on our list.
I broke out the book just a little while ago and I’m glad I did. I almost forgot things like pajamas (very important if you’re going to be staying in random houses and hotels for 7 days.) And I realized tonight I’m out of contacts. Mine are going to have to make do until next week. Oh and I almost forgot my running shirt for this Saturday. That would have been a huge mistake.
I guess at this point, I only have the weather to worry about. I hate driving in the rain. Right now, it looks like the weather is going to play in our favor. Keep your fingers crossed.
