Five more sleeps and I am off!! It just doesn't seem real. I don't know why, but I am in this state of combined anxiety and paralysis. Although I am dreaming of espresso and gelato, I can't focus for more than five minutes on what needs to be done. It just doesn't seem real that I AM actually returning to Italy. Thank goodness I have lists from past years to look at just in case I never get my act together to make my new lists for this year. This is my first year that I have time to leisurely pack and get ready for my trip and what am I doing? Procrastinating!!! I guess I was not meant to be an early bird...for packing either. I shall go and stare at last year's packing list again. Happy Father's Day to all the Dads out there.
