Traveling Eve

There should be a name for the night before you go on a trip.  We’ve got Christmas Eve, New Year’s Eve, Erev all kinds of things for Jewish holidays, and I think there should be a word for the night before other big events.  First Day of School Eve.  First Day of New Job Eve.  Wedding Eve.  And Traveling Eve.  Or maybe Trip Eve.  With subsets for Vacation Eve and Business Trip Eve.  There’s always so much to do, and I think those nights should be recognized.  Maybe it’ll catch on.

So I’m traveling tomorrow (I bet you’re totally surprised by that), and I’m not actually doing anything right now to prepare for the trip.  Except for laundry.  But I feel like I’m always doing laundry.  I have everything I need, so I can pack tomorrow and not worry about it for now.

In the meantime, I want to finish my book (it’s a hardcover, and I’d rather not carry it on the plane, but it’s good and I don’t want to start something else yet) and mope around with John for the evening.  We’ve decided that’s what we feel like doing.  Moping can be fun when you don’t have to do it alone.
