To Do...Or Not To Do...That Is The Question!

Well, the Mexico trip has been booked and I'm leaving...Thursday! Yes...this Thursday. I have so much to do I don't even know where to start. Work is piling up at the office and I'm still doing some Christmas production work for a friend. Something has to get tossed - I just don't know what.

I'm sure it will all get done - I'm just feeling a bit overwhelmed right now. Yes, I know. Suck it up. I'm going to Mexico. Have I mentioned that I'm terrified of flying?

A few other things on my mind this weekend:

1. "Eastwick" has apparently been cancelled. Bummer. I tried not to like this show - but I really did like it. Especially that dark Canadian boy-devil Paul Gross.

2. I'm looking forward to reading the half dozen books I'm bringing on my trip, including Mr. Darcy, Vampyre.

3. I just bought 3 turkeys at 40 cents a pound and I'm not sure what the hell I was thinking. But for $5-ish each, I can give them away as hostess gifts. Or bat mitzvah presents. Or something.

4. I have to actually leave the country to be rid of my Halloween candy. I still have a cookie jar full of it and I can't seem to stop eating those damn chocolate bars. I tried freezing them - but I've just about broken a tooth chomping on frozen Mars bars. I can't bring myself to throw them out. Perhaps if I vow to hit the gym while in Mexico, I won't feel so guilty....

5. Having just returned home from a wonderful dinner out with friends and being serenaded by a boy who looks like tennis star Rafael Nadal, playing spanish guitar, I'm feeling rather smooshy.

Here's hoping I don't dream about my to-do list!

Oh so exciting only three days to go! I tried that freezing the candy too, scared myself when I thought I had broke a tooth. No more in the freezer for me. I just hope the kids finish it off before I do. Have a wonderful time and have some fun!

I'm excited for you. Make sure you get some good photos while you're in Mexico so all of us can live vicariously through your grand adventure. ;-) And holy wow that is a serious deal on turkey, woman!

Don't work *too* hard =)

What a great time to go on a trip. I've never been to Mexico, but hear it is fabulous. Have you ever made turkey soup? I make it once a year and everyone here at work clammers for it.

Paul Gross is always wonderful, no matter what he's in!

WoooHooo! I hope you have a blast! Do bring picture or you'll never be forgiven--okay, I'll forgive you, but pictures would be sooo cool.

Be safe!

Bridgett said... are so cute.
And I think you and my husband would get along famously. He CANNOT RESIST those little chocolate bars. He could eat an entire bag in a day, I think.
And a few more days, you'll be sipping drinks in Mexico. LUCKY GIRL! Think you could make a pit stop and stuff me in your suitcase? LOL

Love ya, girly. Have a safe, amazing trip!

Wishing you a marvelous trip that is as free from worry as humanly possible! Remember that you're thousands of miles away from your woes, no need to let them munch away at your mind while you're on holiday! :)

Bon voyage, sweet dear!
