What a week we are having! As we are supposed to be getting ready to leave for Finland this coming Sunday, all sorts of troubles have been accumulating. Our kitty, Illusia, has been ill, and after throwing up for two days because of antibiotics, she is now spending the night at the vet's, the poor thing. Also, I was supposed to get fingerprinted by Homeland Security before leaving the US, but the paperwork is late, which will end up delaying my green card process. Oh, and Chris broke his right hand index finger the other day.
I am trying to get the house (and garden) ready for us to leave town, and even though we have the most reliable cat-sitters and garden-tenders on call, I still worry about everything coming together. Will they realise to pinch the suckers off the tomato plants? Are the kitties just going to be hiding in the basement while we are away? Is there enough beer in the slug traps? Should I harvest some of the herbs before we go? What should I pack? Of course, none of this is a major problem, and everything will be sorted out, but you know, sometimes one just worries, wears loose clothes and tries desperately to take it easy. I've just always been of the worrying kind, and shaking things off my shoulders is difficult for me. I have written 'to do' lists and 'what to pack' lists for as long as I can remember to help me control my frantic mind, but for whatever reason it is not really helping this time. I just feel unorganized and inefficient.
On a happier note, we just saw Toy Story 3, and it is a really cute, moving film. Go see it! Also, we have little baby robins on our backyard!
