Temporary insomnia

When I should be sleeping, I am the most productive.

This evening I wrote three papers, critiqued another, washed laundry, and finally created "the list" for everything I have to pack for Mexico. Look, I'm even writing a blog!

The Mexico anticipation is just delicious.

The part I am looking forward to most is the flight. I absolutely love to fly. The best flying is at night when you can see the stars and the lights of the cities below. Takeoffs are fun too. Like I said...I love to fly.

The worst flying experience I had was during a band trip to Florida. We got stuck in this monsoon-type storm and the plane was shaking, but I was watching Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, so it didn't really get to me--just the opposite--it made the movie even better--the sound effects were immediate. Kind of like an I-MAX or a Disney ride, but better.

Anyway, when I compiled my list of everything I need to bring, I realized that I am a pretty high-maintenance woman. Everything from socks to eyeliner. Sheesh. Never fear, friends, I didn't list a suit. :-D

Okay, the sleepiness is settling in...

I haven't started packing yet, but I am getting there. I need a trip to Wal-Mart to pick up some batteries, a couple disposable cameras, and some snacks...oh yeah, and a razor. Can I take a razor in my suitcase?

Amanda, I think you can take a razor...I didn't put mine in my carry-on suitcase...but I don't know how many suitcases you're taking! I flew to Myrtle Beach this summer, my first time flying...I could not get OVER the security, have fun with that darlin'! It'll be worth it once you get to Mexico, happy thanksgiving!
