When I am planning a trip, one way I channel my nervous energy is by making lists. My current to-do list includes:
  • Update phone & address list
  • Visit friends & have parties
  • Buy a new laptop (that can show DVDs)
  • Collect used DVDs
  • Make host-family gifts (potholders, maybe)
  • Make travel sheets
Since this trip involves an international move, preparation is compounded by the need to purge junk, pack boxes, change addresses, resettle pets, and a million other tasks required to close down a household for two+ years. But obsessing about my to-do list is part of the fun!
