With our vacation approaching, I'm starting to realize how much needs to be done around our house before we leave. We are having someone stay at our house for the week because I don't want to leave kitty there by herself or have someone just drop by to feed her. She loves people and attention and I wouldn't want her to be alone all day and night. I think I would bring her with us if cats were good at traveling. Something tells me they are not.
I have a few lists of the things that need to get done. Just some basic cleaning up and figuring out what to pack (I'll throw everything I own in the suitcase) but I just feel overwhelmed. Sadly, I can't even seem to focus on actually arriving at our destination because that seems so far away with the long list of tasks to complete before we leave. My husband isn't a huge fan of flying so he is nervous about the flight. I'm nervous we won't sleep on the red eye which will cause us to be tired upon our arrival and drag through the day not enjoying the sights. I'm thinking about how hot, humid and possibly rainy it is going to be and worry that it will put a damper on our plans. This is our first sightseeing vacation together and I just want it to go well. I put so much freaking time into making our itinerary (twice, thankyouverymuch) that I just want everything to go off without a hitch.
I'm going to try to relax. I'm going to get a few things done each night and go to the gym each morning for that exercise stress relief. I'll stay busy at work so I don't leave for the week with thoughts of unfinished projects. I'll picture Washington and New York in my mind and know that we are going to have such an incredible time!
Does anyone else get pre-vacation jitters?
