The mad scramble for Holidays has begun. I’m sweating buckets as I run around gathering all the things on my list. Half way through one task though, I think of another thing that didn’t make the list so I change directions and then forget what the hell I was looking for.
I’m doing a lot of starting and stopping and swearing, if I’m honest. Sure, I could have done most of the packing ahead of time but that just means I’m lugging suitcases from one flat surface to another because I need that surface in the meantime. Houses really should be built with a “Packing Room” that has long flat surfaces for the luggage and shelves for organizing. That would be helpful.
Also, cats; they get into everything and that blouse you just packed will be covered in fur when you need it. It’s safer in the closet on hangers until the last minute.
And I can’t find my Night Vision Goggles. Or my machete. I probably won’t have to slash my way through a steamy jungle on our way to Arizona but you just can’t be too careful. The Night Vision Goggles are handy to have though. I probably put both of them in the same spot so I wouldn’t lose them but I can’t remember where that spot could be. I hate it when that happens.
So, I don’t have much time to write a post but I wanted everyone to know that I’m not dead. I’m on holidays. I might not have time to write much for the next 2 weeks and it seemed like the polite thing to do to explain why.
Unless I actually die while on vacation. That would seriously suck and no one would be worrying because I just told you I’m on vacation.
Maybe I should stop and buy a couple epi-pens in case of Killer Bees and I really need to find that fucking machete and the Night Vision Goggles.
