erika_sanely: (Cat attack)
Just waiting on some washing to dry so I can bring it in, and then I am driving to my parents place to catch up with them before I fly out. I dropped the boys off at the cattery this morning; Owen (the emo-teenager wannabe) tends to self-mutilate when I go away despite(/inspite? I always get them mixed up) him hating me when I am around so it's easier if they're in an enclosed place and someone can easily grab them to give medical assistance if needed.

The cattery is a 50 minute drive away. Five minutes into the drive Marley went to the toilet. And not the "marking his territory" kind either. So yes, my day so far has consisted of being stuck in a car with two crying cats and (if I can quote the movie "kenny") a smell that will outlast religion for almost an hour. Good times people, good times.

But! In two days time I shall have hugs and kisses from my niece/god daughter the Is-Monster, three days time hanging out with E and 8 days from hanging with [livejournal.com profile] windrose If the price of all that awesomeness is a bad smell, I'm okay with that.
erika_sanely: (My trip)
Am packing, and have only just remembered how much I hate packing. Thank you baby jeebus for the internet to distract me. (I promise; five more minutes and then I"ll finish packing.)

Why do the hemisphere's have to have opposite weather???!?!?!

Things I still need to plan for my trip in November (Only 137 sleeps until I go!!)

· Tickets to a game of some description in LA
· Talk to E, see what’s he willing to do with me that’s touristy in LA, and what I’m going solo for.
· Plan clothing – NZ for the first and last part of the trip, US for the rest. Clothing and weather could end up being tricksy
· Hotel in Sydney before first flight
· Hotel in Sydney before flight home
· Hotel for 3 nights in Atlanta.
· Get immunizations (i.e., Tetanus) up-to-date
· Register on www.smarttraveller.gov.au in case of emergencies
· Work out how many packets of TimTams I can fit in my suitcase
· Get tickets to a game of some description in Atlanta
· Organise for cats to stay in the local cattery while I’m away.
· Get mail to house paused while I’m away.
· Get Aus – US adapters for electrical equipment
· Rub in it to all my friends that I’ll be having Thanksgiving, and they shall be in Australia.
Other than that I’m all organized and sorted. Everything (other than the last 3 hotels) is paid for, and while the Aussie dollar has been at an all-time high, I’ve changed a heap of coin over and have just over 4 grand US pocket money. I have never been so organized before.

And speaking of being organised, that my friends is a post a day for an entire month! It went a lot quicker than I thought it would. I hope I haven't bored you too much. :-)

I'm going to try and keep going with daily postings for another month, just to see if I can.
