Packing, Working, and Freaking Out

I leave for Greece tomorrow!!  I am both terribly excited, and terribly nervous.

1. Until about an hour ago, I was completely stressed about getting work done.  There's a deadline right after I get back, so I had to have my stuff finished before I left.  I managed to get enough of it done that no one should be upset with me for what's left.
2. Yesterday I made a list of odds and ends that I wanted to get done before I left (like making sure all the dishes were clean so my apartment doesn't smell awful when I get back).  Then I got home and found my new Hello Kitty crochet book had a
rrive from Japan... still have that whole list to get to.
3. The cats have given up on DS coming home.  They no longer run to the door when the outside fire door slams.  They do like waking me up at 4 in the morning because they're not getting enough attention...  So I'm a little worried about their sanity when I too leave them.  They don't know I'm coming home!
4. I think I'm going to have to close off half the apart
ment.. There are things I definitely don't want the cats around if they decide to punish us for leaving like they did for our last vacation..

1.  I'm going to see the Parthenon!!!!  And lots of other things I studied in college!!  Being an art history major brings joy on every vacation :)
2. I get to see DS again!!  And he's promised to "put me to bed".  Because I'm obviously not capable of recognizing that I'm tired on my own.
3. I don't have to work for 7 days!!!!

So... I know there are more things in the nervous list than there are in the excited list, but I promise the excited things outweigh the nervous.  

Now I have to find a new book to put on my iPod, since I don't think there's enough left in The Count of Monte Cristo to get me there and back.  Some things about planning a trip are really fun!

Also, while I'm thinking about fun trip planning, let me tell you about my new suitcase.  I'm so in love with it!!!!
Is it not the most beautiful thing you've ever seen?  It's purple, and has 4 swivel wheels!!  I can spin it around like a top!  AND it's HUGE!!!  I want to travel travel travel now. :)

Note:  I did NOT pay that much for it.  Turns out it's true what they say in the TJ Maxx commercials.. you can find some really good bargains (and also a lot of junk).
