So far, sort of good. I've only hit one real hitch in Getting My Shit Together for Thanksgiving travel. I was almost completely packed (save the obviously-still-needed) toiletries, when my mother-in-law called and said it was 87 degrees today...and will be all weekend.
Unpack suitcase full of 60 - 70 degree centered wardrobe. Dig out flip-flops and capri pants from hurried but neat stack of summer clothes on my closet floor. Add four more just-in-case tops. Pause. Rewind. Play.
I'm not there yet, but I am whittling, whittling, whittling every couple of hours. I also remembered that I need to bring my work laptop (Work over a holiday with family?, you ask, to which I say, "Work" over the holiday with family!), which adds a big ass bag to the mix.
I am not disheartened or distracted and I'm still determined to make my goal to be completely prepped and packed 24 hour before go time.
In a fit of organization obsession, I added an impromptu GMSTM task to this week's challenge by taking in the (also) packed-full memory cards from my digi camera into Costco.
Sure, we had to hold an antsy, hungry toddler for twenty minutes while the woman in front of us se.lec.ted one freaking photo at a time, but the result was worth it.
We uploaded - check it - 1, 253 photos living on our memory cards on to CDs. We got prints of 200, so we still have a step or two left before completion, but mah gaw, it feels good to have room for a thousand more pics of Lil E mowing the living room carpet nakey. Good stuff.
