This is so NOT happening. Looks like his manager will just have to think about another trip for DH .
Oooh! I do seem to remember you mentioning a trip in Jan 2011?

Yes...it's a distinct possibility. The team meeting is definitely happening for DH. We're waiting on his manager to confirm which week. It may move from that last week of Jan/early Feb to the week before.

And then I have to negotiate time off with work....... I have the leave time; and it could work out well with the summer school holidays so DS and I can hang out in our favourite places in Silicon Valley. It's just that it could be a busy time for the project I'm working on.

If DH is asked to go again before Christmas, he'll be going alone....but I'll be working on the laptop, broadband, skype and 'on-line' shopping.

Depending on the dates and your itinerary, it will NOT be the World.....but I do NOT see why it couldn't possibly be the LAND ?

No. Same trip. Just NOT sure which week yet. I'll let you know when we know for sure.
Yes....I've been checking out the Museum and debating whether I want to go see it this trip or in January. I'm erring towards January because I can take DS with me and it would be cool to do it together.

I'm still so NOT ready for my NOT NOT trip....

I'm down to my last 24 hours before I start my travelling.

In 24 hours I will NOT be at home....and will be travelling to the airport.
And I've worked out I have a mountain of things to do:
  • I still have NOT packed.
  • I still have NOT finished my shopping.
  • I still have NOT cleaned the house.
  • I still have NOT finished the ironing.
  • I still have NOT washed that last load in the washing machine and dishwasher.
  • I still have NOT changed the linen in the house.
  • I still have NOT organised DS clothes and activities for the Grands to do next week.
  • I still have NOT suspended our newspaper delivery.
  • I still have NOT painted my nails.......(wait! I did NOT plan on doing this anyway )

On the plus side.....passport, tickets and US currency/spending money are changed and these items are NOT a problem...









So I do NOT have to complete the above list if I do NOT want to.







.










ps. I am still NOT looking forward to the long haul flight!

Other than packing I would NOT do any of those things before leaving. Especially change the bed linens. We have this problem that we have to cover the bed (with a waterproof mattress pad on top) when we go away because, well....let's just say the cats exhibit passive agressive behavior while we are gone so we always have to change the linens before we sleep in the bed.

Sadly, I am having a very busy day.....and when I went to check my favourite pair of the sandals, I realised that I had worn the heel completely down in May. I had planned on getting them fixed but as it was winter, well.....they just never got looked at.

Today, I put them on and realised that either I would be breaking in a different pair of sandals at the World ; or I would need to bribe some cobbler to fix them ASAP.

Took me about 4 cobblers before I found one that was willing to prioritise the job.

So, I've been ticking off the NOT jobs during the day and will be heading out very shortly to pick up the sandals......

Then, I can finish packing.

And I decided to take much more clothes on this trip than I have ever done before. I had a quick think about when I would be able to schedule in laundry....and figured that there would NOT be time.

So, I've actually got 8 days worth of clothes with me; rather than my customary 4 or 5 days coverage. My bag does NOT have a lot of spare space for shopping.... I've also taken 3 extra knits for layering purposes. Aside from the hot days and cold airconditioning changes, I understand that there is a little chill in the air at night in Orlando; plus San Francisco will be a lot colder. Oh well, it's just as well I was NOT planning on shopping (much) this trip.....
