Could it be my sanity?
I have to fly out of town for work tonight. Kelli will take me to the airport as Ava has been at the off site location since Sunday night. This time, Ava managed to get all the way to the location with no incident which is unusual for her as you can see from here and here.
I have every faith that I can negotiate the security check point without raising any eyebrows. That being said, prepare yourself for a blog explaining how I managed to screw everything up.
I hate traveling. I know a lot of people say this but I really do, but not for the normal reasons. I hate it because I always, always forget something. Something important. The anxiety of waiting to figure out what desperate thing I left at home always drives me crazy.
Thank Zeus we no longer have to keep track of tickets and just boarding passes these days. Carrying a ticket around used to drive my stress levels through the roof.
I have my work laptop and scanner and cords. I have my iPad for blogging and working on my manuscript. I have my iPod. I have my cell phone and charger. I have my Kindle – yes, my Kindle and my iPad. When I review Advance Reader Copies (ARC) of books, I can’t put them on my iPad. I’ve spent a long time with the Kindle folks and I have expressed my displeasure.
Note to Amazon: get on that will you? Seriously. I have WAY TOO MANY electronics to haul through an airport.
I checked on the underwear situation. I packed all my migraine medicine. My work credit card is in my wallet. HERE IT IS – RIGHT HERE. THIS PART ABOUT HAVING HER WORK CREDIT CARD. IT’S A LIE. HERE’S WHAT SHE FORGOT. AMYLYNN DOES NOT, I REPEAT, NOT, HAVE HER WORK CREDIT CARD. THEREFORE, SHE MUST SPEND EVERY WAKING MOMENT WITH AVA BECAUSE AVA REMEMBERED HER WORK CREDIT CARD AND IT’S THE WAY THAT AMYLYNN IS GOING TO BE ABLE TO EAT.
On my honeymoon I forgot my blow dryer and thus in every single picture my hair is in a bun. I double checked my blow dryer this time.
I have no idea what it is, but it’s something. I’m certain of it.
