just a little stressed?

oh yeah, just a tiny bit of stress here...
We are leaving for a trip of a lifetime, really...a trip to mark off my bucket list. I should be so excited, but am I??

I am trying to do laundry, laundry and more laundry. My darling daughter is cleaning my fridge for me. I am trying to pack...for 21 days. How in the world will I know what to pack for 21 day?? I am just a tiny bit panicked. I know it will all work out in the end...seriously, I know this... but, right before a trip I can be a bit overwhelmed and I have NEVER been on a trip for this long before.

I was showing my daughter, how 'organized' I was with all my paperwork and reservations for each hotel and looked at our last one for the day before we come home and the date was WRONG!!! I had to go online and request a change of date...good grief, talk about more stress.

I know, yes I know... it will all work out and we are going to have such a wonderful time, I know this! But, this type A lady is about over the top right now...

Going to make some tea and take a couple deep breaths...I cannot wait to see some of the places I have only dreamed about! Wow, I am really going to Europe?!!!

I am packing the camera so I will be taking loads of once in a lifetime pictures! :)

Oh wow Melody, I can tell that you are very anxious but don't be. Everything will be fine-who cares if some of the laundry isn't done! Just go and have the time of your life!!!!

Bon Voyage and best wishes,

Oh, how wonderful! Getting ready for the trip is the worst part...then when you finally go, it will be great! :) Just make a list and check it twice! LOL!

No matter how organized I am, I always get stressed before a trip. It's just a little nervous excitement I think. I can't wait to see your photos from the trip. Have a fantastic time and absorb it all. What a wonder time of year to go too!!! All the best!!!

Preparing the house for a trip, and doing all the last minute chores sometimes seems to take as much time as preparing for the trip.

Comfortable walking shoes are on the top of my list.
You probably have done this, but you might want to make copies of your identification, to keep in different places, and also for a friend or family member to have here. Aside from that you can usually pick up anything that you forgot and absolutely have to have.

It is a trip for fun, and you do not want to have so much that the baggage is a problem. Just have fun.

best of luck on ur trip. take LOTS of pics and make sure u journal at the end of the day/night no matter how tired u are. thats my one lesson from vacationing. those journals are so precious.
