ten things tuesday

Ten things:

1) I'm running around like a chicken with its head cut off trying to think of everything I need and want to do before I take off on my trips. Yesterday I almost had a meltdown at the pharmacy when one of my prescriptions wasn't ready. But, deep breathing helped me remember I had today to pick the prescription up. Not a calamity!

2) I'm a sheepish overpacker. So to avoid my overpacking tendencies, I packed my NYC suitcase today. Including shoes. Everything but toiletries. And I am not going to tinker with it. I didn't overpack! Theater outfits-2 shows, wandering around outfits-2 days, travel outfit-I can wear the same both ways. And pajamas. There. That's plenty.

3) I'm trying to figure out what to take for gizmos. A Nook and an iPad? A Nook, an iPad, and knitting? What about headphones? So many considerations.

4) I need to pack for my Portland trip. That's easy. Most of it will be in the car. But I need to gather my toiletries, I haven't done that yet.

5) I thought about getting my flu shot today. Pulled into the parking lot for it and everything. But decided against it since I still am a little junky from my cold. And with the travel, I don't want my system to freak out. So I will get it next week.

6) One of my nails snagged/chipped. That rarely happens. My manicurist was able to slip me in between clients for a less-than-five-minute fix! She's the best!

7) I remembered to go to the bank to pick up a pre-paid credit card and put travel notices on my accounts.

8) I got gas, checked the oil, checked the windshield washer fluid, and tire pressure. I cleaned out the back seat and trunk.

9) I'm wearing skinny jeans and I can't decide if I like them or not. I'm not used to wearing clothes that fit this snugly on my legs. I'm more of a straight leg/boot cut jeans person. But they are comfy and stretchy. I don't feel like a sausage. Hmmm...
