On track today, getting ready to get organised and packed for our trip!

Monday, August 13, 2012

I have been on track today - and will stay on track the rest of today!

I just picked up my gorgeous Max from the Vet - he has had his injections, check up, worming, etc. and has had a wash and a tidy up ... over $300 worth - but he is worth every penny, and is set to go to my son's house while we go away.

Max looking very beautiful!

Max decided rolling around on the grass was a good idea when we got home!

I cooked myself some quinoa at lunchtime - had it with some fish and beans - very nice. I just sprinkled some tuscan seasoning on it. I will investigate some other ways of having it. I know it is very good for you.

I created 2 spreadsheets today with Australian Dollars to Thai Baht and to Singapore Dollars. DH has taken them to be laminated - and we will hand these out to the others going with us.

DIL's sister did this when we went earlier this year. I took a leaf out of her book, and coloured some of the different cells to differentiate them. Very organised I am! emoticon

He is also getting my exercises laminated to take away - the one's from the exercise physiologist I went to last week - ready to do them in the pool in Thailand and then in the hydro therapy pool when I get back.

We go a week tomorrow - so I need to get myself ready. DH is getting our documents ready and I will scan them and save them into Google docs, so they are available wherever we are.

I have started a list of what I want to take - mostly what I took last time. My camera is on charge, and I am only taking the iPad this time - I took my Mac Book last time and it was great, but I now have an App that allows me to update on the iPad, so it will be lighter. The only thing I won't have is a DVD player - but we only used that once to look at a DVD we purchased at Phi Phi island. Not worth the extra weight - particularly as my hip is playing up. I have even purchased a fold up walking stick - just in case the leg and hip give out on me! The exercise physiologist thought it would be a good idea too!

  Hey, Max is so cute!!!! I don't remember seeing pictures before!

You sure are organized. I am a very low-tech person & barely understand what you explain you have organized. lol

I think I had misunderstood when I thought you had a bad back -- it's actually your hip that is the problem? Good idea getting a folding walking stick; I should look into buying one. Also a great idea having exercises laminated so you can bring them to the pool. Isn't having pool exercises good on vacation, it increases the likelihood that you will take the time to do them, as compared to hotel room exercises.

Have a great trip!

    Love that adorable Max of yours -- he's a heart-breaker! Laminating is a great idea. I inadvertently left my physical therapy suggested exercises at the house while on vacation and now should probably get them laminated to protect them for future use and on-going travel. Great planning!
