Does anyone else get completely stressed before they leave to go on a vacation? I'm a wreck. Usually, I'm the quintessential 'meh' girl. I rarely worry about anything. It's not the first time I've traveled internationally. It isn't the first time I've left the kids. I think it's just the fact of my leaving my safe little bubble is what has me troubled, more than anything. Likely enough, I'll be fine once I get there, lounging by the pool, fruity drink in hand.
Right now, though, I'm trying to rip DVD's to download onto Nolan's ipod (Him asking me to do this a week ago would have been helpful), packing for the both of us, making sure all of the boys clothes are clean and ironed, and I have to go purchase a hanging bag.
Oh, and plan for my classes this afternoon, make dinner for tonight, coordinate Ethan's choir schedule, make up a list of emergency contacts, print out emergency maps to the hospitals and Dr.'s offices, and make sure that we have everythingeverythingeverything that we might possible need for a week long stay on a boat.
The thing that I'm most concerned about? My cell phone might not work. It's bad enough that I won't have internet ($50 per day for 180 minutes)but I won't be able to talk to the boys, either.
Okay. Breathing. It's going to be alright. It's going to be fun.
