My schedule is about to get totally jacked up. A family event, even good ones, like weddings, babies, or group travel can bring on incredible stress. Our upcoming vacation, as fun as it will be, will be a major upheaval.

I must locate adequate pet sitting because the kitties are medicated. This is something that requires a professional. It’s going to be expensive but hopefully, we can work something out. The kitties can’t miss out on their meds, the vet says it is dangerous for them to miss their dose.

We also have to begin packing. I don’t really have a vacation wardrobe for the type of resort we’re heading to. I’m going to have to pick up some cover ups and stuff for the summer climate. We need to begin picking up items like sunblock and travel sizes of toiletries.

So much to do, so little time. I’m doing my best to plan ahead, but if previous experience has taught me anything, I’ll forget something. Like on my honeymoon when I forgot sandals, I had to suck it up and make it work.
