In the home stretch

Later this afternoon, Joanna and I will have our last pre-vacation coffee and planning session. Cripes! I still feel unprepared, but I realize that’s just the nervousness of an epic adventure taking over. The most important thing is this: we’ve scheduled our time off through work, we’ve set aside vacation cash, we’ve printed our Viva Las Vegas weekend passes, we’ve reserved a hotel room in Las Vegas. Everything else? We can wing it. Sure, I may be terribly bored in the car if I forget my iPod, but really, it’s not important.

This past weekend, I did laundry, cleaning the clothes I’d like to pack while inadvertently making a mess of my apartment. I thought that organizing would help me feel more in control of things, but instead I’ve just got piles of clothes, underpants, yarn, and books strewn across my studio apartment. As long as I remember to put away some of the more intimate lady things before my brother arrives for house-sitting, I should be fine.

I’m seriously trying to keep my underpants-packing to a minimum. For some reason, I am one of those people who packs a dozen pair of panties for a long weekend. Joanna’s been kind enough to remind me that a) there are stores along the way that sell underpants and b) we can do laundry when possible. I do not—I repeat, do not—need to squirrel away my entire wardrobe of underpants in a car with limited cargo space for a two-week adventure.

Tomorrow I will finish packing. Wednesday I will visit my parents. Thursday I will take out the trash and recycling. Friday I will meet Joanna after work and head out on vacation!

    You guys are going to have so much fun! I’m a wee bit jealous.

    And I will miss you.
