Vacation in less than a week

Yesterday was one week until the beach. This is the conversation I had with my roommate.

Me: I think I'm going to do laundry today instead of Wednesday.
Me (a little while later): But since I'm doing laundry today, the dilemma becomes whether I hang the clothes I plan to take on vacation back in my closet or put them in a pile to pack. If I put them in a pile does that make me too much like my mom?
Emily: Well, since you won't be putting them into your suitcase, but just starting a pile, then you're not actually packing them. I think you're safe.

My mom started packing a week ago. I just couldn't do it, though. The clothes went into the closet. I'll pack on Friday. I'm going to have to do laundry again anyway. Whew, I'm not turning into my mom after all! :) (I love you Mom!) I did start my normal packing list last week, which is probably a trait I got from my mom, but I'm not sure it's ever been confirmed or tested.

It's good to do things like your mom! I just talked to Gayle for 1 1/2 hours so am behind in finishing packing. Do it early, you'll be glad on Friday that it is done! I love you too Teresa.

I read somewhere that women tend to look for a spouse who is like their father. After comparing worrying and packing notes with Cindy for the past few weeks, I told Chris he married a girl like his mom! :)

Beach or bust! 5 work days left!
