Things to do the day before the day before traveling

I’m going to San Francisco in a couple of days, and I spent all day (at work) making sure I have everything I’ll need.  Thankfully, I’m not going by myself, but this will be my ONLY supervised trip before we all head out on our own.  I’m looking forward to it (I like to go places, I’ve never been to San Francisco, and I’ll have a good time, I’m sure), but I’m not at the same time because John can’t come with me.  I don’t mind going places on my own, but I hate going without him.  But I still have to go, so now that I’m home, I’m working on my to-do list.  I have a packing list, but that will wait until Sunday morning.  I just spent some picking up downstairs and I’ve got laundry in the washing machine.  I’ll pick up in the bedroom as I do laundry.  You know, my list really isn’t that long.  Which is why I can take the time right now to write and change the look of my blog again.  So here’s version #4:

Not all that far from version #3, but that’s okay.

Oh!  I have to remember my camera.  No excuses.  Camera camera camera.

I just put it with the work stuff I have pack.  Yeah, too distracted by trip stuff to write anymore.

Update: One thing I really like about this version is that I can make changes to individual pages (like allow comments on the lists pages (favorite books, favorite movies, etc), and say no to comments on the main books and movies page).  Other versions force me to make a change universal for all pages.  That’s pretty cool.  Of course, if I weren’t using a WordPress template (coding each page by hand instead), I’d be able to do whatever I want to each page and this wouldn’t be such a big deal.

    Yay, you’re reading This Rough Magic! This weekend, I’m going to start the Rosamund Pilcher novel you got me at the book sale. 🙂

    Wow, I haven’t read Mary Stewart in at least 1000 years. I wonder if she would still hold up for me?

    I know what you mean about pre-travel nerves. I always get them, but especially when I’m going off by myself. It’s a strange feeling: as much as I love to travel, when I’m alone I have this sense of displacement, anxiety that I’m not where I should be, and even though I tell myself that there are things about that kind of travel I should enjoy, I rarely do. I hope you find a better way to deal with it. Or maybe you don’t have that kind of anxiety. Just me, your neurotic old mom.

    Jess, I tried to leave you a comment the other day but I couldn’t remember how to login, I guess. It wouldn’t let me.

    Yeah, I have a different kind of anxiety. Much as I hate it when I’m somewhere new and John isn’t with me, I’m usually still able to enjoy myself. It’s just a different kind of enjoyment. Sort of like I’m trying out being on my own (something I never really did). And it’s fun for a while, but after a couple of days, I’m reminded of how glad I am that I’m NOT out on my own.
