It’s funny the things I catch myself doing recently. It’s like my brain has been taken hostage by travel ferries and I can’t control my thoughts and actions any more. For example, this Sunday I found myself packing up my backpack. Again. I guess it’s useful to practice these type of things. To strategize if it’s better to put my tennis shoes along the bottom of the pack, or standing up vertically, one on each side. Wow, now that is a big life decision.
Another oddity is my continual obsession with our budget. While attempting to relax and watch a movie this evening, I drifted off in my head for at least a half hour thinking about our budget. As if it matters?! We’ve already quit our jobs and are leaving town in three weeks.
Obsessive googling of travel destinations for at least 2 hours per day is now the norm.
With only 23 days left until departure, I have become crazed with hanging out with friends and family as much as possible, and doing everything “Denver” before we leave. Guess I should have been doing this all along, but no time like the present!
Something funny that other people have been doing is saving and giving us boxes. “Hey Amy, I have some great boxes if you need some”…as if they’re precious jems or something. Don’t get me wrong, I do appreciate it, it’s just, well, funny.
As a result of the box giving, we started packing up our apartment. All sorts of weird stuff is coming out of the woodwork. We are also donating (and re-gifting) a lot of stuff we just don’t need anymore. Our fake Christmas tree is probably better in someone else’s hands.
I’m sure we’ll get to the point where I won’t be able to sleep. As for now, I’m still REMing. And will continue test packing:)
