As Wednesday quickly approaches, my mind races with all the things we need to be sure we have packed. I like lists. Michelle hates them. I haven’t told her I’ve made lists so we don’t forget things because it would annoy her, but since she doesn’t read the blog, I can tell all of you.
New subject: Weather. Discuss.
Why couldn’t the adoption be taking place in Hawaii, or Florida or even the Gulf Coast somewhere? Utah in the winter for an adapted southener is just unkind. I actually have to find my winter gear from when I lived up north. Evidently the part of Utah where we are headed got 2-4 inches of snow today. Aren’t you jealous, I get to drive a rental car in unfamiliar territory on yucky roads!
New subject: Tech support. Discuss.
I had to have my laptop “re-imaged” late last week. “Re-imaged” is geek speak for erased, or mulligan, or do over. Today, for the first time since the big event, I attempted to access my company lan remotely. I could get to email, but I couldn’t get to much else. So, I guess I have to get that resolved before we leave tomorrow. Why is it that whenever someone in tech support touches my computer for anything more than 2 minutes it takes me a week to get it working the way I want again?
New subject: Disjointed thoughts. Discuss.
I’ve been like this for several days now. My mind races at full speed in one direction only to take a 90 degree turn at absolutely random moments and plunge headlong into an unrelated topic. I wonder if people with mental disorders are like this all the time? I wonder if I’m the only person who isn’t like this all the time? I’ve had discussions with people that made me think I might be the unusual one in that respect.
New subject: Airline baggage restrictions and costs. Discuss.
In my list making (see. full circle, maybe I’m not insane after all) I’ve been considering how to pack everything we need without incurring the dreaded “extra bag fee”. Michelle is in the process of starting her packing as I type this, and I see bulky sweaters. This makes me think that my suitcase will be the one compromised to fit all the baby’s things. Hmm. AH HA! I have the solution! SPACE BAGS! We have some somewhere that are for travel. Wow, can you even imagine what the baggage restrictions will be like when we can travel to space? If the airliness are running that operation they will probably just charge your ticket price based upon your weight and your luggage weight. They are mean like that.
Well I suppose I’ve wasted enough of your time. Go do something productive.
For those of you who, like me, get a song planted in your head and can’t get it out…..
Its been raining and icky here all day, and I’ve been singing silently in my head all day, “Its a beautiful day in the neighborhood, a beautiful day for a neighbor would you be mine, could you be mine.”
