Warning: Lots of whining ahead…
I’m sure I’m not the only one who always feel even more stressed than normal just before a vacation. We still have a list a mile long of things that NEED to be done before we go even though we’ve been cracking away at it all week. Okay I say we loosely, mostly Brian has been busting his butt. I did help stack a bunch of hay last night, in my defense. 😉
So I made myself this rule…absolutely no knitting and no Ravelry surfing until the house is as clean as I want it to be before vacation. That means pretty much no knitting tonight! Which would be a whole lot easier if I hadn’t just picked up my special order yarn for a an upcoming wedding present to be knitted. Oh, and finding a deal today on the yarn I need to make 3 more Christmas presents didn’t help either.
I’m not only a little overwhelmed with the to-dos and don’ts but also feeling physically queasy. I’ve had fast food for 3 of my last 4 meals (!) and I just spent $30 at the grocery store buying all the “convenience foods” that I never buy so that we won’t have to eat out for lunch on our trip. Easy Mac, granola bars (I wasn’t going to kid myself and say I’d make them between now and Friday morning), Little Debbie snacks (they were 4 for $5 after all), chips, MICROWAVE popcorn (I can feel my arteries clogging), Nutri-grain bars (those are healthy right!?), oh, and applesauce. In cups with foil lids. Are you feeling like this is the blog post from hell yet?
Oh, crap, hubby is home. I’d better quit whining and feeling sorry for myself and get something done so I can spend 5 minutes with him before we both crash! TTFN, and don’t worry, I’ll have much more positive things to say in a couple more days! 😀
