There have been a few threads about the rituals we go thru when getting ready for trips. I have found these posts to be very interesting. I would like to hear more about what people do to plan and organize. I leave two weeks from today. Most of all the tickets I could prepay have been ordered. I am still re-writing my daily schedule and expect that I will do that up until the very last day. Two weeks ago I threw a few things in my empty suitcase and put in the closet. Tonight I took it out and did not want to bring anything I had already packed...took it all out and put new stuff in. I have searched all the threads about the weather in September, and I will check online a few days before we go...but I am still crazed about the weather. Is it going to be be fall, summer...or what! Open toe shoes, umbrella a light jacket, short sleeve shirts...ahhhh My passport arrived TODAY. Thank goodness, I was about ready to have a mental break down. I got gel insoles today at the pharmacy and also moleskin and bandaids for my feet. I am starting to think about the actual plane ride and think I might go out and buy some stuff tomorrow that will keep me occupied. I read the Da Vinci code this weekend and I am so mad at myself. It would have been the perfect book for the flight as I sat and read it cover to cover yesterday, took me 6 hours but I was so involved. Love that book. Does anyone have a good recommendation of a book to buy that might be interesting and relate to my trip?
