I am packing. Again.

Do we all know how absolutely horrible I am at packing? Well, let me remind you: I suck at it.

I am so very happy to be on vacation, only it doesn't feel like vacation. You know that the last day of work before you go away is always the worst? Well, this one did not disappoint.

Everyone was bugging me to do something for them. And then someone would come along and say "hey, haven't you done THIS stupid thing that doesn't matter to anyone but me? NO?! OHMYGOSH, you totally need to do that before you leave today or I will think you're a complete failure!" So, I'd spend my precious time doing something stupid that could really wait until after I got back from vacation. And then I stayed late and didn't even get to some of the things that I really should have done before I left -- all because someone thought that their idea of a priority was more important.

And I walked home all tense, trying to remind myself: you're on vacation now, relax! But to no avail. I knew I'd come home and have to do laundry and pack and tie up all those loose ends before going to bed early so that I can wake up in time for my 6:45am ride to the airport. Ugh.

I suppose it could be worse. I could be moving at the same time. Ha, now what idiot would do that?? Oh ya, right, I would.

Intead, I haven't even STARTED to organize my move, even though I move in about 2 weeks. Good for me.

One step at a time.
First step: enjoy vacation.
Second step: enjoy life.

I'll see you April 11th.

Cath! Don't worry about it. Relax, enjoy your trip, and remember, I'll help you paint AND I have a very swish coffee table for you. Tree.
