The countdown is on! We only have 100 days until our great big trip around the world.
For me, this is both exciting and scary. It’s getting SO close! Tomorrow we’ll be down to double digits, however, there’s still a lot to do before we leave. I’ve made our office into a staging room for our trip. It’s full to the brim of stuff we need to get rid of or sell.
I’ve also turned one wall into planning central.
I stole this idea from my friend Talia, who’s leaving on a big family adventure shortly after us. It’s my favourite! Every time me or Randy think of something we’d like to buy, or get done before we leave, it goes up on a post-it on the wall. They’re even colour coordinated so it’s easier to look at. The pink ones are all health-stuff related and the yellow is tours and transit I need to book. The orange ones on the left…that’s all stuff we want to purchase! Randy’s new obsession with videography has left us with quite the “to buy” list! The good thing is we can leave without any of it and we’ll survive.
I’ve got a pretty good handle on what still needs to be done. I’m away 3 of the next 6 weekends, then Randy and the girls take off July 1st and come home only days before our actual departure date. This is causing me a bit of panic, especially since the wall is so full of post-it notes. I’m sure it’ll all get done. Either way, we’re leaving July 22, done or not!
