overwhelmed

I have a long packing list in front of me, courtesy of my details-oriented sister.  If it were up to me, I still wouldn’t have one.  But apparently denial doesn’t make something go away.  (Although unfortunately, that remains my favorite strategy for dealing with unpleasant problems).  She wrote down all kinds of things I know I would have forgotten – like my laptop.  Or my cell phone charger.  Or socks. 

Somehow, I’m excellent when it comes to packing the extras – stationary, or all the books I simply must have with me.  And then I get to wherever I’m going and realize I’ve forgotten some neccessity.  It’s happened more than once. 

My poor baby sister looked so sad when I said I was going back tomorrow.  But she got some cookies tonight to celebrate my being home, so the sadness is currently forgotten.  But it breaks my heart every time I leave.  Poor baby. 

I’ve been scrambling around all day, trying to do everything that I had told myself I needed to do over break.  Write a letter; get a friend’s package ready to mail.  Install photoshop on my laptop, because I’ve discovered that I can’t live without it.  Play with said baby sister.  Practice driving.  Sleep in.  That sort of thing.  And, since I’ve spent parts of the last few days feeling simply awful, I’ve also been watching a few episodes of a show my sister got me hooked on: HGTV’s Design Star.  Reality show with designers.  The winner gets their own HGTV show.  They have all kinds of crazy design challenges, and usually about 24 work hours to finish.  It’s highly entertaining. 

And now I should go do some packing instead of trying to procrastinate and deny again. 

The promised post will hopefully come tomorrow night, once I’m settled in and have time to research and write.
