Pre-trip Craziness

My days at work can be slow as slow, and as surely as ginger cookies go with lemon tea, as soon as I am one day from leaving on vacation, the floodgates open, the phone lines ring, people stop by for a variety of reasons and there's no end of it!

Perhaps someone sends an e-mail to everyone else in my world, letting them know that "she's leaving for a few days, so get in there and keep her runnin' in circles"...that's possible. All I know is that it goes crazy just before I leave, and today was no exception.

I'm supposed to be packed, ready to leave around noon tomorrow.
Guess what?
I'm so not ready.
So not.

Rather than freaking out like always, I've decided to adjust my schedule for tomorrow and give myself a breather. I'll leave whenever I am ready, rather than making myself completely nuts by insisting on a preordained departure time. The bottom line is that I have to be at the airport by 10:30 A.M.on Friday morning. Anything earlier than that is a bonus.

So, my self-imposed deadlines are out the window and I'm trying something new...leaving for the airport when I'm ready! As long as I arrive a couple of hours before flight time, it's all good.

A new concept...being kind to myself!
I'll see how well I do with this.
I'll let you know how it goes, after it is over.

"I care not so much what I am to others as what I am to myself.
I will be rich by myself, and not by borrowing." ~ Michel de Montaigne

Have a great trip! Enjoy!

I like your new attitude. Kindness to self. What a concept! :)

It worked, what can I tell you!
I just let it all go to the Universe to create order out of the chaos...and it worked!
When I think of all of the trips where I've stressed myself to insanity...this was much better and much smarter...gonna try it again, next time!
Ciao,
Brenda
