Sleep Would Be a Good Thing…

The Simon & Garfunkel concert last night was great. Fabulous, to be exact. It was definitely an interesting crowd – the place was packed and I think that all of Houston’s 45-70 crowd was there. When I went to see Radiohead last fall, I was all but strip searched. Last night? Yeah, a little different – they were just checking bags. Nothing more. Amusing contrast.

Once we finally got home, I had to finish laundry so that we could pack. No big deal, right? Ugh. I don’t know why, but I get in to some bizarre mode whenever I travel. It’s not that I overpack (normally), but that I become convinced that I left something behind, something that I absolutely must have. I’m going to Minneapolis. Within the United States. They have anything and everything for sale there that I might need. If I forget something that is really important, I can just buy another one. Not a problem for most people, but it is for me. And I know it. I realize I don’t need to worry about it. I even tried to reassure myself last night, but no luck. I was awake until 6:30 am, when I simply reached the point that I couldn’t function anymore.

Now that I am at the airport, it doesn’t stress me out so much. If I forgot something, I forgot it. Too late now. So why do I worry so much the night before every trip? Does everyone do this, or is it just me?

All I know is that I could really use some more sleep right now. 2 hours just wasn’t long enough.

I’m obsessed about doing laundry before a trip, but only because the house has to be spotless upon return. If I open the door and see a mess, I’m afraid I’ll turn around and leave again.

My family gets mad at me for not bringing anything on a trip. I guess extremes on either end aren’t good.

Hope you have a good flight.

WaaaaH! Simon and Garfunkel – wow! I took my mum to see Paul Simon for her 50th – she bought the S&G double LP the day before i Was born, and I was brought up knowing all the words by heart. I REALLY wanted to see S&G here in London, but the dates clashed with a family holiday 🙁 I am glad you enjoyed it – it sounds awesome!

Have a safe trip 🙂 Glad someone else finds desperate ways to blog when on the move 😉 Makes me feel less mad!

I am the exact opposite. I never worry about whether I have forgotten anything, but I always have. I guess somewhere between you and me, there is a person who remembers everything and doesn’t worry about it. (Of course, there’s also that person’s evil twin, who worries all night and then forgets everything anyway.)
