To do:

I do NOT have time to be writing this right now! I'm leaving for China in two days! My list of things to do has 21 items on it and I keep adding to it every few minutes. In fact, I'm spending more time managing my list than actually doing the things on it.

Here's what I do: read through the list. Try to decide which things are most pressing. They are all pressing. Put an asterisk by the very most pressing. Think of something else to put on the list. Add it. Look through the list again to see if I can check anything off as "done." End up choosing a task that is not very pressing because it seems easier to do, therefore whittling the list down faster. Cross that task off my list and read through it again. Try to decide which things are most pressing. They are all pressing. Go to the computer and look through the lists and instructions I'm leaving for my mom. Rinse. Repeat.

I know what's going to happen. I'm going to keep this up until the last day when I am forced to cross most everything off my list as unnecessary and let my mom just deal with it. I know that because I've done this many times before and that's what I do. But maybe this time will be different. Maybe. Maybe not. But Maybe. Geez! I don't have time to sit here writing! I've got stuff to do. Let me just read through this list real quick...

You sound like me. I was still typing a list of stuff at the last minute before we left for China. Mark was yelling at me to get off the computer, that our friend Amy was going to be just fine and that the kids would be fine. Yet I kept adding stuff and stupid stuff. Stuff that Amy could figure out for herself. I had to take a deep breath, let it out and know that everything would be just fine. Have a great time!!!!

if you flew up to Seattle you could fly straight to Beijing. It's only 11.5 hrs. Definitely take some food. Rice w/fish for breakfast is not good. again did I tell you that I'm jealous?
