Countdown

Tomorrow we are leaving for Florida
To attend my middle son's wedding.

So this is the countdown...
Do I have my sunglasses...
my cellphone...
cord to the cellphone...
reading glasses...
computer...
all cords for computer
(and there are a lot)...
books to read...
DS...
(with all its cords)
camera...
(with all its cords)
shoes...
(this is EXTREMELY important)
I even have a pair waiting for me at my son's!
Important papers...so they'll let me get on the plane.
I can become president without them...
but I can't get on an airplane. Wonder how THAT works?
Address book so I can send everyone a postcard.
(Although I usually don't actually get around to it)
makeup...jewelry...Bible...shampoo...conditioner...
I don't want to forget anything!
I start packing 2 weeks before.
My husband?
He started packing tonight at 9:00 pm.
And he never forgets anything!
That really bothers me.
Procrastination is not something that should be rewarded.
Yet he never forgets anything.
How is that possible.
I plan...I make lists...I check them twice...
gonna find out who's naughty and ...no wait...
that's another story.
I plan...I forget.
He doesn't plan...he doesn't forget.

It's one of those things in life that I don't get.

So tomorrow on the way to the airport
I'll be saying...did I remember my phone?
My wallet?...My glasses?
Did I turn off the iron?

Sigh...

  1. This sounds so very FAMILIAR and I join you in the SIGH. However: "For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mothers womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well." Psalm 139:13-14.Wow,this must mean there is a reason for the guy/gal differences. Could it be fun and laughter; understanding; forgiveness; or learning from each other ??? Sooo are we having fun yet? Safe and joyful trip. Lisa if you don't have it ask Russell and Russell, well you know !!
