Diary of A Planner

I'm a planner.  I like lists and organization and checking off lists.

So usually when I'm taking a trip or going out of town I have a list of things to do, things to get and things to pack.  I enjoy checking off each thing, one by one as I complete it or pack it.  I enjoy making sure that I have everything I need and relaxing the night before I leave.  I leave for Chicago tomorrow and would love to relax tonight.

Not gonna happen.  *sigh*

I spent last weekend baking for Easter and recovering from Easter and my weekly errands.  I spent Monday night baking for a work thing that we had Wednesday.  Tuesday night I worked late and then came home to finish the baking.  Yesterday I was up early to put it all together, worked, went home and had dinner with Pete.  Then I started randomly throwing things in a suitcase.  Add in the tidbit that I have been so busy at work the last week that I don't seem to have 5 minutes to myself.

What usually happens when I don't plan is that I have a lot of random crap and I way over pack.  So instead of watching American Idol with Pete, I listened to it last night and went from bedroom to bedroom trying to plan on the fly and packing.  I think I have 5 tops and one pair of pants for my 2 night trip.  See, what I mean?  Not a good thing.

So I'm getting off work a couple of hours early tonight.  My goal is to shop for the few things that I still need, eat dinner with Pete, finish packing and give myself a mani/pedi.

We'll see how it goes.
