Getting my ducks in a row
I have to travel this week for work. I leave tomorrow mid morning until Friday evening. Trying to get things organized so that things go as smoothly as possible for Auntie and Mom is somewhat like orchestrating a Broadway Musical!
I have little lists all over the place. Oh, have I mentioned that I am a World Class Worry Wart? I try and think of everything and make sure that there is some back-up for Auntie in the event of something not-nice happens. And - as things usually go - both of my primary back-up people are out of town. My Grandfather was Irish and he always said we had the Luck of the Irish and we had "shamrocks up our butts"! Well I hate to tell Grandpa.....but I think my shamrock fell out!!! LOL Now, I'm sure that nothing major will happen but I will be a 5 hour drive away for 4 days. This evening I did arrange for a relative to casually check in so I'm a little less crazy.
Maybe a martini will take my mind off it when I get to the Resort??
Momz Wool) will be staying at the same hotel. We never get to travel together for work so this will be fun. (** I asked her permission before referring her to a geek in the blog. Hehehe.)
And finally I got the 2 giveaway packages in the mail today. If not, it would have been another week delayed, so that was good. But while I was at the post office the lady at the counter told me the price and then asked me if I wanted to donate money to Mental Health. Hmmmm, I told her that since I was half crazy most of the time, I would keep my money and we would call it even! OMG it seems like every day there is someone asking for a donation to something. They are all great causes but I get a little tired of it everywhere you go. There is always some sad looking kid at the end of the grocery line collecting for sports, or the Department Stores are asking you to round-up the total amount. But I wasn't expecting it at the Post office! I donate to several charities each year but don't ask me everyday.
I have to go finish packing and I'm taking the camera so maybe I will have some pictures to post later this week.
