Y’know why? Coz then I’ll not be frazzled, not have to drive for 16 hours, not have to do laundry, pack, worry, yada… Of course, I chose to buy a Portland ticket ages ago, so I shouldn’t complain, but I’ve had a rough coupla weeks, man.
I really need this concert. I really need to emerge myself in one last U2 show, surround myself with good friends, good music, and good times.
Then I have to drive back, unpack, do laundry again, re-pack, and fly to Massachusetts for the holidays! Ack!
It’s a good thing my Mum booked a flight on the 24th and not the 22nd or I'd never have been able to do Portland. I really needed the bumper of a couple days just in case… You just never know with weather, cars, etc. Anything can go wrong!
Ok, getting ahead of myself… Just need to focus on one day at a time. Today: Pack! Tomorrow: drive! And so on…
As a side note, I have like, seriously, about 10 loads of laundry that I need to do. I haven’t really done done laundry since I went to Ohio in March. Sure I’ve washed a handful here and there for various events and such, like my favorites items, but not the whole shebang. I have way too many clothes. It’s insane. And, the scary thing is, I still have a closet and a bureau full of clothes, not to mention one large suitcase full of clean clothes. Man, I am a clothes freak! Oi vey!
Well, back to the day… Gotta get a lot of stuff done today, including an oil change. Bah, I need a money fairy. U2 has broken me this year. (But I still love ‘em.)
