Laundry is done. Clothes are packed. Morning items are going to be packed as soon as I'm done using them in the morning. Passport is in the folder. Laptop is checked out and charged up. I am ready to go!
Now for the hard part....sleeping through the night without waking up every five minutes because I'm paranoid that I will miss my alarm and therefore my flight. Getting the rest of the morning items packed without forgetting anything. Not stressing that I am forgetting something as I'm walking out the door. Hmmm....
Oh well! If I don't sleep, I have a few hours on the flight to Japan to sleep! LOL!
I don't know how much I'll be able to Spark...so just in case...See ya in a week!!!!
Okay...gotta go and stress a little more.

I went to bed at 11:00 last night and woke up at 10:00 (according to the clock that had not been changed for daylight savings ending). That's eleven hours of sleep!
Got up, went to the gym (after eating the breakfast DH made), started the stew for dinner, made bread, had lunch, went shopping for a new suitcase, made cornbread, ate dinner and made enchiladas for tomorrow. And now I'm ready for bed. And it's not quite 8:30. I'm getting old...
Oh, and DS is sick. He might be getting the flu. I love him, but I HAVE to avoid him for a couple of days! I can't get the flu right before I travel! I just can't! Earlier, when DS said he was sick, DD looked at him and said "Really? You don't even have school today?" LOL!! Poor kid!
Off to read a little before going to bed. Night y'all!

Okay, so I confess. I did pack for my trip to Taiwan last weekend! But I HAD to! I had to pack to make sure everything would fit! And it did. But I did unpack! Now I want to pack again! I want to have everything in the suitcase and the laptop case and whatever. I want to be at the airport and getting ready to board the plane. And I want to do it now!
Of course, I don't even have the laptop yet. And I don't fly until Friday. And not all of my clothes are clean. Minor details, right? LOL!
Fine! I'll wait. I can't promise to be patient, but I will wait.

What if, while I am in Taiwan, my family doesn't miss me? And by that, I mean what if they don't miss all of the things that I do for them that seem to go unnoticed.
What if they don't notice the sink is cleaned out?
What if they don't notice that they don't have any clean clothes?
What if they don't notice the trash that they left in the living room isn't there?
What if they don't notice that lunch for that day isn't already planned and ready?
What if they don't notice the crushed cans are gone?
What if they don't notice the dogs weren't fed?
What if they don't notice?
That's half the reason I want to go on this trip to Taiwan! So that my family will notice that I'm not there and that they will notice ALL of the things (okay, some of the things) I do without a thank you! If they don't notice, does that mean that I don't do as much as I think I do? Or that they are just ungrateful brats? LOL!
My DD will notice I'm gone, at least at dinner time. I always make menus for two weeks at a time on payday weekend. This is payday weekend so the menus stretch into that week I'm gone. And I made the meals easy ones. Tacos, burritos, sandwiches, pizza. However...I just KNOW that DH will make DD make dinner most (if not every) night. I small part of me (okay, large part) hopes that she rebels and he has to cook! LOL!
Okay, enough "poor-me" ing and off to the rest of my evening. Thanks for "listening" to my worries/fears/stresses/delusional ravings!
