planning, packing, stressing.

This week, I am going on vacation. Now generally, to most people, that's not a very profound statement. But this is the first time we are going on vacation all together as a family. Not Eric and I dropping off the kids for a weekend away, not me and Perrin and my mom jet setting to a conference, but all of us packing up the car and heading to New Hampshire. I am stressed about it because Eric has me planning everything, and he can be so OCD about things sometimes. At least we have someone to come feed the cat while we're gone.

MMM update: I have 3 of the 5 layouts completely done and documented. #4 is in process, and I have a few already done that I may choose one as #5. I breathed a sigh of relief as I realized after reading the rules that the entry has to be postmarked by July 31st, not arrive there by July 31st. So, I do not have to overnight my entry on Monday as I rush to get everything done at the last minute. I can leisurely mail it on Tuesday after I rush to get everything done at the last minute. I am totally in love with my theme layout, it's too bad that is the one that I have to send the actual layout.

Book update: I finished Harry Potter Book 1. Nice easy read. I loved reading all the little details that were not in the movie. I've now started on Book Yourself Solid by Michael Port. It's a book designed for service consultants to develop a brand and build a client base that you love, and that is the spot I'm in right now with my business. I've read through the first chapter, and I like that it has exercises and assignments for you to do, rather than just a pure read.

Now, I will return to my regularly scheduled stressing.

I hope you got your MMM work sent safe and soundly on its way! I'm sure you're gone on vacation b/c I haven't seen you on the boards. Have a great time!!
