Next week, I start on my biggest trip of the year: two countries, two conventions, and a whole lot to worry about.
WHAT AM I FORGETTING I KNOW I AM FORGETTING SOMETHING.
What’s worse is I’ve already started putting together the “things I have to do when I get back” list, mostly because I’ve had a couple of things land on me this week that I’m just not going to be able to finish before I leave, so I’m putting them off. On the one hand, I’m glad I don’t have to worry about them now. But yeah, I can already tell I’m going to be busy when I get home. Sigh.
I’m packing in a bunch of stuff: the conventions, touristy stuff, and visiting old friends. Also, I did something kind of unusual for me and signed up for an organized tour in Ireland. I wanted some actual vacation time, but I couldn’t decide if I wanted to rent a car, try to navigate buses, or even what I wanted to see. And I really didn’t know if I was going to have the energy to sort it all out after two conventions in a row. So, I’m letting someone else make all the decisions. And I have to say, I’m looking at my travel calendar now, where every single day is packed with stuff, but that last week is completely clear and I just have to show up on time, and it looks amazing. It looks relaxing.
Ah yes, I do think I’m looking forward to this trip.
So: London and Dublin. Who will I see there?
