Lists, lists and more lists
It's been 3 days since I've blogged and I thought I'd better post something before I completely fall out of the habit. I've been busy. I've been spending alot of time indulging my other hobbies and tend to get so caught up that I don't do anything else.
The other problem and reason why I haven't blogged... I'm not sure I have anything to say. Last week was so exciting with the whale and the polar bear, it's only going to be downhill from there. Putting those thoughts aside here we go.
The countdown is on for our trip south. We leave 4 weeks from today and I've already started packing. Well, not literally but I'm packing on paper you could say. I've started making list. The first one, what clothes to bring. That one is actually 3 lists because there is one for me, one for Oliver and of course one for my organizationally challenged husband. If I left it up to him he'd show up it 2 pairs of underwear and a t-shirt I'm sure. Then there is the list of all the things I need to bring home with me like Christmas gifts I've accumulated and dvd sets I've borrowed and have to return. The one for the things I need to get while I'm in the land of retail. The one for the appointments we have to keep, and the one for the itineraries and reservation confirmations for car rentals, hotels and flights I have to print.... phew.... So much to think about.
The highlight of our vacation is going to be the week in Hawaii, Sans Oliver. O will stay with his Oma and will be well taken care of so Nick and I can concentrate on having a romantic, relaxing adult get away. But a trip to a warm climate means yet another list for summer clothes. Maybe I should make a list of what lists I need to make. Ok, that's getting out of hand. But you know what? Even with all these list, I'm still going to forget something, most likely 2 or 3 things. It happens every time.
I really, really love a list.
