My check list so far is getting shortened. I've really got a lot done the past few days and it feels really good. This weekend I will start assembling my clothes to make sure I have everything I need, do washing and possibly clean out my closet a bit. I'm a little anxious, mainly during the morning when I feel like I have a lot to do. This morning at the personal trainer place I started walking on the treadmill and thinking, bad thing. My stomach started knotting up and my blood pressure on the handles started rising a bit just because I was anxious. I'm so not a good traveler. I decided I needed to run so I amped it and ran for about 5 minutes and it felt really good. It really eased up the nerves a bit. In fact I had a great workout. I'm going to hurt tomorrow.
Last night was not too good sleep wise either. I had a very scary nightmare. The kind where there are ghosts and monsters. I felt like a little kid. It happened about 1 am and left me with my heart pounding and wide awake till about 2:30. I hate that. When I finally fell asleep the TV alarm was going off at 4:45. I'm a little tired but still anxious. It may be this way till we leave. I attribute the nightmare to drinking a caffeinated drink late in the evening. I usually hold my caffeine to 2 a day, early.
