I have this method of packing that involves making piles. So right now there are multiple piles -- organized piles -- in my house. Tonight I suppose I better put everything in the suitcase or backpack. It keeps me from forgetting things, though, I think, because I just put stuff there as I think about it, and I also don't feel like I waste much time packing. Honestly, over the weekend I was worried about this trip. One, I know the change in my routine and the eight-hour time difference is going to affect my diabetes. Everything is going so well with it right now that I hate to disrupt it. Reminder: This is a once-in-a-lifetime trip, really, and I need to suck the diabetes worry up and be tough. Also, it's no secret Angela and I aren't exactly friends. I tolerate her for awhile, then her personality and mouth rub me the wrong way. Again, suck it up, Kristin, she's not going anywhere, so learn to like her. Greg told me my goal on this trip whenever I get frustrated with her should be to think of something positive about her. We'll see how that works. I think all of that is behind me now, and I'm ready to travel. We leave early, early tomorrow morning and we'll be back late, late June 15.
