As I said in my last entry, time creeps up on you. It is subtle and quite and then it slaps you upside the head and screams NOW!!
Yes. I'm packing. I hate packing. I have this paranoia that I am going to leave something crucial. That is not such a big deal when traveling within the US, at least usually, but when traveling out of the country it can make you nervous. Ok, really, is it such a big deal if I forget my extra camera battery? Wait, I forgot to buy an extra camera battery. One more trip to the store and I should be done then. But the truth remains that finding the things you need in another country can be a challenge. It's not that they aren't there, it's finding them.
So I have my list and I'm checking it twice.
My cat on the other hand has me on her you-know-what list. She's not happy that the suitcase came out. She has since commandeered it and refuses to move. The looks I'm getting are frightening. I just know she's going to change my alarm tonight while I sleep so I won't get to the airport on time. Cats are cunning like that you know.
No, you can't leave me.
