We leave Saturday - I'm in "pile" mode right now.

warm, cool, cold, rainy weather piles
maybe pile
carry-on luggage pile
shoes pile
paperwork pile

I HATE packing

Which is why you need a personal valet.....

Keep in mind that simple light layering works well here in So. Cal. A light tank top goes far to improve warmth. For women, you can do crops with the right tops and be warm. I honestly think we are going to going up and down for about another week. It';s in the 80s today, but the night low of 50's is pretty consistent.

Oh - and shade really actually works here.

On the plus side - DL makes really great sweatshirt designs.... Better than the regular tops.

We leave Friday at 4:30AM, so we have to be totally ready by Thursday night.

Piles have been made, documents have been sorted, new DVDs have been purchased for the flight out and the Ipods are loaded.

Still need to stop in at the bank to "fill up".

I did just stop at the Best Buy for a new battery and memory stick for the camera - don't want to miss anything!

We don't leave til Monday morning (4:45 a.m.!!!), so I'm just in pile mode myself too. I need to do some laundry between now and then and make sure all of the electronics are all charged up.

That said, Phillip will pack on Sunday night and not forget anything. I will have 4 lists and pack on Saturday and I will be the one with something missing.

And now for the bummer: I started to get a sore throat yesterday. I had thought it was from screaming at the ball game on Monday night, but, alas, as of this morning, that is NOT the case. I think I'm going to need antibiotics. My doctor isn't in on Wednesdays, so I have an appointment first thing in the morning. I just want to make sure it's not strep and get started on antibiotics if I need them and maybe a decongestant so I'm not miserable on the cross-country flight. Once I get there, even if I'm still sick, adrenalin will take over and all will be fine!

We fly out early Sunday morning so we have to start the drive to the airport (3.5 hours away) in the middle of the night on Saturday. The suitcases are out but they are still empty at this point.

It drives Jennifer crazy the way I pack as I will pack in like 5 minutes not too long before we leave. She is much more of a "planner" than I am when it comes to packing. Oh well, as long as nothing too important is forgotten.

FYI - Just got this news update. This will be going on at the Anaheim Convention Center the last weekend you are there. You may see some of the trickle down effect from it...

Sorry to hear that Dodie but if it offers any hope, I started with a sore throat a week or so ago and it lasted about 36 hours. Hopefully you experience the same shortness of ill that I had.

Good trip to everyone!

That is exactly what Jeri does to me too. I'm rushing around packing pulling things out, ironing, while Jeri watches the TV. He waits right up until the point where I'm about to take the Lord's name in vain before he packs. That's the great thing about hardwood floors. He can tell from how loud my footsteps are getting upstairs how long he can continue to push it. Then he likes to pack everything he owns, which I tell him is not actually packing but bringing all of his clothes onto the bed so that I will sort them. Then we have loving, tender coversations that go like, where in the bloody hell do you think you're going, you know we are going on the plane right, you can't bring all of this carp, why are your shoes so flipping big, then it goes straight to @#$@#$!@#@. Yep, our love is still going strong after 13 years!

Todd - I so need a valet!

I thought you weren't interested in the job since I hadn't heard back from you. What a shame - I've already given away that extra ticket too

I suggest Whiskey & Honey for that poor sore throat & light on the honey
