Things to do before 3:00:
Pack clothes, etc. for two or three days. (We still don't know how long we're staying at my aunt's.)
Do cards for neighbors - enlist Rob to go put them on people's doors.
Call my aunt and check in?
Go by Chase and start trust accounts for me and Paula. Take paperwork by lawyer's office.
Figure out what beads (findings, etc.) I'm taking with me. *
Post something for Holidailies

Things not to forget: fruit for fruit salad, rolls out of the freezer, laptop (for clandestine WoW time), stockings, iPod (which allegedly is a Christmas present but which I keep using), address book - which I always seem to need if I don't have it. Camera.

Our land-line doesn't seem to be working but I just don't have the energy to worry about that today. I'll deal with it when we get home.

I'm craving ham. I may ask my aunt if anybody is already bringing one, and if not, go buy a small one. Assuming I can find time to go to the grocery store.

*That's my gift to my cousins (and any other assorted relatives who happen to be on hand) - made-to-order jewelry. I'm letting them pick out their own beads. I didn't figure there was much use in trying to do anything other than earrings ahead of time. With bracelets, especially, it's hard to figure out what will fit, especially given the range of ages involved.

As expected (see entry above), I spent most of the day running around madly and then we drove to Bryan (and ate way too much Mexican food upon arrival, if it matters). The problem of the long to-do list was exacerbated by lack of sleep - I went to bed around two and woke up around six, I think. I don't function well on four hours of sleep, which I certainly hope was the reason I had to stop running around mid-morning in order to have a crying jag. In any case, I did start feeling better and I got most of the to-do list taken care of - Chase asked for paperwork I didn't have, which is par for the course for them, in my experience. I didn't go by the lawyer's, either, but I talked to her and all is under control as much as it can be, I guess. (We were trying to distribute some estate money before the end of the year but we do still have some time to work on that next week.)

We got here with tons of beads, it looks like - and as far as I can tell, with everything else we needed as well. (Knock on wood.) Everything on the list, anyway - although frankly, as long as I have ambien I don't so much care about the rest, right now. I'm going to be going to bed really shortly.

Oh, and Linda's dog pissed on the bed (Rob's bed, actually) while we were making it up. He's a rather princess-y Jack Russell and I think we upset his routine and failed to make up for it by giving him sufficient attention. I hope this isn't a bad sign for the next couple of days!


(One more thing - my sister e-mailed me and she and the bf are meeting us in Vegas. This should be interesting.) (But she is, of course, flaking out on Christmas again. That one I expected.)
