I'm not sure why these family trips bring out the worst of my slight OCD tendencies. On three separate occasions in the past 14 months I've proven that I can be out the door and on the road within an hour in an emergency. But if I'm planning on going, it takes me DAYS to get ready. Planned visits bring on strange compulsions. I feel compelled to do things like bleach my children's suddenly unseemly socks, get my brows waxed, detail my car, vacuum all the nooks and crannies of my house, clean out the window tracks,organize the Tupperware, alphabetize the bookshelf, and scrub out the fridge.
I suppose secretly I'm afraid I'll die while away, and you'll all come to my house and judge me. (I come by this fear naturally- you should see the elaborate plans my grandma makes when going on vacation!) Anyway, I gotta go change the sheets and pack the suitcases! Good luck to each of you getting your holiday To-Do list done!
