Ack! Would you look at the time?

Here I sit with my feet up doing nothing when I've got so much to get done.  I need to return those pants to Moosejaw because they make my ass look enormous, go through the clothes I need to pack and locate the suitcase in which to pack them.  Finding the cooler shouldn't be too difficult since--thanks to LG--we need to use it every 6 weeks when the refrigerator goes on the fritz.  I still have to get some banking done, pick up some Deep Woods Off, chase those dust bunnies out of the house and go buy a monster size bag of strawberry Twizzlers.  No driving vacation is complete without them in my book and driving 1700 miles one way?  Hmmm....maybe I need two bags.  Tomorrow I'll get a haircut and then we'll check to see how close I am to achieving the hairstyle I had my sites set on last November.  What yarn will I take?  What projects will I knit?  Should I even consider packing my wheel?  There's just so much to do and sitting here thinking about it isn't getting it done.  It's only making my to-do list longer.

But I am all caught up on Breaking Bad.  Must be a record...4 full seasons in 2 short weeks.  I never thought it possible, but I think Walter may be more inhuman than Gus.

On second thought, maybe it's not my to-do list that's given me this anxiety. It's Walter.

LOL - yes it's probably Walter. I remember reading a Dean Koontz book late into the night when I was alone (where the heck WAS Mike that night?). I had to pull out an old Calvin & Hobbes book just to get me calmed down enough to sleep.

I'm excited for you! Hope you get everything done & have a GREAT time!

P.S. Um, just in case, maybe you should just go ahead & empty your refrigerator?

I am still trying to decide if I like breaking bad, because of how slow the show progresses. Plus the bf keeps watching ahead of me :-) enjoy your vacation!

Love Breaking Bad. Love it. Looooooooooooooooooove it. Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul are so amazing. The writing is amazing.

Did you know Saul has his own website? http://www.bettercallsaul.com/

All my pants make my butt look big but they won't let me return them.

Silliyak said...

You're at least fortunate in that my BUTT makes my PANTS look big. If they could take themselves back to the store I'm sure they would.

I hope you have a great trip.

That's a lot of miles wow, I have trouble with a couple of hundred miles in my miserable Ford Escape. You will have a great time I'm sure. Take lots of pictures. I'm still trying to decide what kind of wheel to buy and looking for courses in my neck of the woods...ciao

You don't know how close I came to packing my sewing machine when we went to the country. I know Pooldad would've gladly put it in the car, but I also know I would've done squat. Remember, I was too busy EATING. giggle

Wow 1700 miles? Where are you going? South America? And Twizzlers are a definite YES! Along with peanut M&Ms and Jolly Ranchers. mmmmm

Road Trip!

I hope you have a wonderful time Rudee. Is is just going to be you and your hubby?

Knitty said...

I must shop at the same store as Gail and Silliyak...

Don't waste time cleaning before you go. Dust bunnies will propagate while you're gone anyway. If you're worried about an emergency and what some might think if they had to enter your home in your absence, either lay a few lamps and framed photos on the floor while leaving a few drawers opened (make it look like someone broke in and messed up the place!) or line up Get Well cards, especially those that imply serious illness or surgeries. No one blames a sick person for having dust bunnies.

Stephanie V said...

You're dusting? No! Get out the yarn for the trip. Who cares about the bunnies - they'll only be a bit bigger when you get back. Do it now and you'll have to do it again when you get home.

Definitely two bags of strawberry Twizzlers. I agree that they are perfect travelling food. I also take them into the movies.

Alice said...

Hey, have a wonderful time on Vaca.
I'm dreaming of having one of those!
Alas, someday.

I love hearing what people take on road trips!

I'm not a huge fan of strawberry Twizzlers, but the new pretzel M&Ms are fantastic.

I must have a large bag of Good & Plenty when I fly, and family car trips are always accompanied by meat sticks.

Mom and I once drove to the coast (about 2.5 hours) and devoured a box of SnackWells on the way. I doubt they're as good at helping you lose weight if you eat the entire box.

I hope you have a blast, knit lots, travel safely, and come back refreshed!
