Those who are close to me know that planning ahead is essential for me. There is no such thing as spontaneous in my vocabulary, especially for big events. That only leads to stress. I'm a plotter and planner all the way.
That's why this week's behavior is so unusual for me. I'm packing up my children and driving six hours to visit my parents on Wednesday.
That's not very spontaneous, you say. I beg to differ. I didn't even start my packing list until Sunday. Sunday!
I haven't begun packing. I still need to get the oil changed in my car, pick up some groceries to take, and clean out the car so there's room for all our stuff.
I'm haven't started to stress yet, to my surprise. I'm sure by Saturday I'll wonder what the heck I was thinking... But for now, I'm excited by this adventure.
What adventure are you planning this week? What's one thing you would totally do (or not do) on a whim?
