How did it get to be this late this early?

Long day, much done, even more not done or relegated to the "after my trip" to-do list.

Done:

  • Signed my lease renewal

  • Paid the rent

  • Took light rail to the Great Mall§

  • Bought the AM/FM mini-radio I'd had my eye on

  • Bought a mini short wave radio I hadn't had my eye on

  • Bought squeeze bags for my trip¥

  • Bought a travel pack at the Samsonite storeß

  • Decided not to buy any more clothing for the trip. It's cheaper in Thailand, & I expect to lose more of my tummy there.

  • Did not find a belt without metal in it for the trip. Remembered I had one at home.

  • Hooked up a new filter/aerator in the fish tanks

  • Replaced a missing valve cap on one of the car's tires

  • Unclogged one of the windshield washer ports

  • Discovered that Domino can now launch herself over the patio wall, despite a planter with cacti on top of said wall

  • Lined up my three travel packs side by side, tried them on, looked them over and decided to take the one pyrzqxgl recommended§§

  • Decided to use the National Bowling Stadium fanny pack for my camera's flash cards, batteries and USB adapter. Also decided to take my flash along.¥¥

  • Changed the catbox

  • Read a few more chapters in In Conquest Born. Hope to finish this before my trip.

  • Organized my belt drawer.

  • Discovered I do not own a belt without any metal in it, after all.

  • Printed labels for postcards I will send on my trip. Learned more about Microsoft Word 2003 Mail Merge than I ever wanted to know.

Tomorrow won't be so busy. I have a Peace Corps alumni planning meeting in the afternoon, and that's about it. Two more DVDs to watch, plus last week's episode of Desperate Housewives.
