Only got 30 days! Can you believe it? Wow. I’m so glad I got a jump start on all the nesting. Now just to keep it all up for 30 days haha! I got that tray for the coffee table, so now all that stuff is contained. What a relif. So much easier to clean without piles of crap to move everywhere. I even went through and organized my closet, primarily because I was hoping my gloves were stuck in a purse somewhere, and they were. So I got all my purses shoved into a big duffel bag. Not that the dog will be in the closet hahaha, but I’m just getting everything done that I’ve wanted to get done for quite some time now.
Another thing I’ve started doing is making sure no food is stored on the counters. Not that I think my dog will counter surf, but I’ve heard too many horror stories, and why give a temptation? We didn’t store a lot of food on the counters, but sometimes there would be cookies or chips or something. So now all that stuff is living out of reach. Best to start implementing these changes now so we’re more in the habit.
So, what do I have left to get done? Well, quite a number of things.
I need to get to Target. There, I can get all the odds and ends I need for the trip. I need to get a couple packages of black undershirts. I’m just gonna wear those for training, so I don’t have to decide what to wear every day, and so I don’t over pack clothing. I need to get zip lock bags and small bottles of shampoo and conditioner. I need to get something to wear for graduation. My first thought was a simple dress I can fluff in the dryer, but I don’t want to worry about shaving. So I might just bring my black slacks if they’ll fit. They were almost too big when I wore them for the concert. I’ll find something simple that will just fluff when I’m there. I might be able to find dog bowls at Target too. If not, I’ll need to get to Petsmart.
I need to make some room on my iPod for books. There’s a lot of music on there I don’t need. After I clear some room, I’ll use the gift card for iTunes and get that one Dean Koontz book and maybe another.
I also want to download a few movies to fall asleep to, since I’m so accustomed to falling asleep to tv. Wish the DVD player on my computer was accessible. I could just bring Harry Potter. I wish iTunes played DVDs.
I need to type the wireless passwords into a text document, so I’ll have to find them on that cd GDB sent.
I’ve gotta listen to 8 class lecture cds when I get them, hopefully next week. The school sent them UPS on Friday.
I need to call the airline and ask my questions to ease my mind, and I need to call the airport to make sure B can go through security with me.
Hmmm. What else. Oh yeah, I need to call the apartment office and let them know about the dog, and I need to find a good relieving area. Also, I want to see if the manager will write something in the newsletter and/or put a note in the laundry rooms telling tennants with dogs to leave us alone for a good 6 weeks. Who knows if we will encounter problems, but there’s a couple dogs across the way that are quite vocal.
Oh yeah, gotta get more Starbucks instant coffee.
I’d like to get my hair trimmed and brows waxed, but those aren’t priority.
I’m now washing the towel I’m gonna use to get the cats’ smell on and then the dog’s smell for B to take home before I get back.
Oh yeah, we’re finally getting spinelli spayed before I go. I feel horrible that we haven’t gotten it done. She’s in heat again and it’s heart breaking. I feel like a terrible mom. So that will happen shortly.
Carol is coming over this week to help me get the spare room organized. The dog won’t be allowed in there, but it really, really needs to be done. I tell ya, this nesting is such a blessing!
I think that’s about it! I’m sure more will occur to me, and I’ll write them down so I can remind myself of what I need to do 😉
30 days, holy cow!!!
