There is a to-do list that has been sitting on our kitchen island since Thursday night. And it has haunted me for the last three days. Why?
By the time this blog post goes live I will be on a plane to New Zealand. If you listened to the Artists Helping Artists show last week then you might remember I mentioned that we had a trip planned to New Zealand. My husband is competing for the USA in the World Master's Games (in volleyball in the 55+ age bracket) and my oldest son is also competing (in swimming in the 25+ age bracket. We planned this trip a few months ago but we knew there was one catch. If my youngest son's volleyball team made the NCAA Championships then I would be staying home.
I honestly thought I would not be going to New Zealand. In fact, I was in complete denial and hadn't done anything to prepare. Including some of the trip planning. Sadly, on Thursday night, UC Irvine lost in the MPSF Championship semifinals. I was so sad for my son. And then I freaked out that I had to plan for the trip. Uh oh.
Don't get me wrong. The packing part is nothing. It's the "getting everything done because you are going to be gone for two weeks part" that had me completely freaked out. Make that present tense, "that HAS me completely freaked out".
The good news is we don't leave until really late on Monday night. So I have 26 hours to get everything done.
Of course by the time this blog post goes live I will be on the plane to New Zealand. Which means I will have everything done by the time you read this. Right? Ok. Wishful thinking.
And one more thing. Tuesday pretty much is non-existent this week. We take off at 11:40pm on Monday and arrive 13 hours later on Wednesday morning. Good thing I didn't need Tuesday to get stuff done. I hope you all have a nice and productive Tuesday.
