How Planning a Vacation Gets Me Motivated BEYOND Packing

Almost like Spring Cleaning or nesting instinct before giving birth 🀰and I don't really know why.
  1. β€’
    Get those Netflix DVD's watched and in the mail.
    Also put a hold on your account for vacation. Right @dreadpiratemama and @tweedledee πŸ˜‚
  2. β€’
    Personal grooming
    Pedicure βœ”οΈ Highlights βœ”οΈ Waxing/Depilatory everything (turning me into a hairless cat) βœ”οΈ Eye-exam βœ”οΈ Fill a tiny chip in tooth (I've been putting off for months!) βœ”οΈ
  3. β€’
    Pre-making dinners
    And using up all the food in the freezer and cupboard. Especially if leaving Tom at home-he'd eat Jack-in-the-Box or 7-11 burritos 🌯 everyday. Yes, I care πŸ’˜
  4. β€’
    Weight Loss
    Always like to start out a bit lighter. Sitting in an airplane seat πŸ’Ί and being uncomfortable is the worst!! Usually lose ON the trip - all that walking!
  5. β€’
    Cleaning
    Washing all the comforters we've been crouching under all winter. How does cat hair cling to them without showing? Note to self-do this more often 😬
  6. β€’
    Decluttering
    Mainly of my pre-packed travel items. What I just HAD to bring on the last trip, isn't always necessary on the next. I.e. Flip flops when it's storming in NY 😫 (I'm a flip flop girl 4eva)
  7. β€’
    Paying bills-transferring money.
    Putting money in all the right places and paying cards ahead if possible. Making sure banks know I'm going to be gone. Getting cards cancelled when you're buying a round of drinks? No. 😀
  8. β€’
    House maintenance.
    Roof patched βœ”οΈ Gutter repair on Monday βœ”οΈ Traction mats on front porch replaced βœ”οΈ
  9. β€’
    Stocking up on cat food and litter.
    I know Tom will take care of the the babies, he loves them too, but Momma worries 😽
  10. β€’
    Finish audiobooks I've borrowed
    And return them. It's not like I'm NOT coming back but I don't like any loose ends. You never know πŸ˜‰
  11. β€’
    Just in case...
    Calls to sister. Letting husband know where the important papers are (yes, he should know all this but he really doesn't care so....yeah). AND there's still the actual packing MY REAL TRAVEL PACKING LIST
  12. β€’
    Then leave town with no worries!!
    Bon Voyage to me πŸ›«
