Why am I such a stress case? I'm acting like I've never gone on a 2 week trip before. I actually blame the fact that I have too much time on my hands. You know how when you don't have a lot of time you work quickly to get everything done? Well I think when you have too much time you work slower and your 'to do' list continues to grow. At least that is how it is for me.
I've been stressing out so bad this week that I've been sleeping bad every night AND waking up with headaches. However today I was able to get a much needed massage thanks to my friend Stephanie who gave me a gift certificate. The masseuse is a friend of hers and let me say that she was AWESOME! I couldn't believe all of the small hidden knots that she found. I was really amazed. She even massaged the front side of my neck, which was really sore. She said that people who are on the computer a lot are often really sore there. Big surprise. However now my back is starting to stiffen up again! I was just hoping that the looseness could last until Thursday. Oh well.
You would not believe the stuff I'm stressing about...just over what to pack! I'm trying to pack so light, which is so hard for me. I can't help it if I want to look cute. Why can't I bring three pairs of capris'? One casual, one jean and one dressy? Yeah not going to happen. It's also not just my pants. It's also my shoes and coats. Why can't I coordinate?
In case you are wondering what cities we will be visiting I created the graphic below: (click on it to enlarge if need be)
Two years ago when John and took our first trip to Europe I create the graphic below:
Obviously this graphic inspired the Italy one. Unfortunately I did not put what the 'trifecta' consisted of...it was beer, cheese and chocolate. I forgot how silly this graphic was and when I opened it I just about busted a gut from laughing so hard. I really should have made one of our trip to Belize/Guatemala last year, but I spaced it.
We leave Thursday afternoon and I will try to blog while we are in Italy. Considering I'm addicted to the computer I don't think I'll be able to stay away too long. Unless I'm in such a complete gelato haze and can't type. I think that is the only thing that will keep me away.
