i always get nervous before a big trip. maybe it wouldn't be quite as stressful if i didn't have to wake up so darn early to get to the airport via public transportation. the fact that daylight saving time is starting and we lose an hour of sleep isn't helping either. right now i'm deciding whether or not i should bring my ibook with me when i go to DC tomorrow. i think i'm probably going to leave it at home, i don't need that extra weight, and what kind of mini-vacation would it be if i'm still spending time blogging? so if i'm not online for a few days, that's the reason. i'll be back wednesday night though, with plenty of stories. 5 hours before i leave and do you believe i'm not even packed yet? what do i really need to bring anyway, besides a change of clothes and my usual camera equipment?
i knew there'd be some rain today so i didn't plan on going to any nature trips. i went to target to buy a kite and dropped off dan & cymara's house keys at punam's place in mission hill. by the time i got back home the sky was very dark and there were intermittent periods of rain. by the early evening however, the weather cleared up. my mother came by to help me clean out the fridge before i left. we got some groceries at the supermarket and made dinner from leftovers.
