Because usually I'm so calm

I had intended to map out some plans I have for my blog over the next few months, but find myself staring 11 pm in the face and knowing that tomorrow will be hellish.

And then there's the fact that I hop up every 2 minutes whenever I think of something else that needs to be done before we leave.

Now it's true that I will be coming back, that we don't have the movers breathing down our backs. Yet. But the current trip requires a balance between loading up things we want to move ourselves--some papers, pictures, special books--and bringing items that will make a 3-day trip with Scooter bearable.

We're mostly there. It's not like I'm running around with a mile-long list and no hope of going to bed before 2 am. But trip preparations always make me more anxious than usual.

So most of my energy has been going towards that (plus feeding the troll over at my previous post). I'll be in and out over the weekend, no guarantees of when I'll be posting or commenting. Send your positive vibes this way--keep off the bad weather, banish construction and traffic jams, encourage Scooter to nap frequently. We'll need it!

I am scared to wish anyone luck this year but I'll be thinking and hoping for naps for you.

I'm the same way before a move or a trip... Good luck!

I'm kinda sorry you closed comments on your previous post because I wanted to ask CanGuy why his company doesn't just find a better way to can food without Bis-A instead of trying to convince people it's not dangerous? Oh well...

Good Luck on your trip. I hope it goes well.
Your troll responses were good. But, try not to let it bother you. I get some stuff that really bother me sometimes.
They just keep replying!

First leg done. Trying to figure out weather for tomorrow, but I think we'll be able to just miss everything.

I would have kept going with the troll for a while, but decided I didn't want to try to think up a reasoned response after a 3-hour seminar and 10 hours on the road (stupid traffic around Toronto and Oakville!).

More later...
