That would be me.

It is quite possible I might never get to the US because of a nervous breakdown due to too-much-to-do-itis.

I have nightmares of my lists killing me in my sleep.

And I haven’t even surfed for pron for 3 days…

You can die from shit like that!

Oh, yeah.

I’ve definitely lost it.

    I hear you sister.

    I was laid awake for over an hour last night at 2am worrying that my bag will exceed the baggage allowance and I may have to leave something behind.

    Plus I keep remembering stuff I need to go and buy.

    Then I remember that I've got to pack for the kids as well as myself (they are going to Grandparents).

    eeeeeekkk indeed.

    Ha! My veri word is heart – I think they mean heart attack!

  2. Kris says:

    Jen: I think they mean heart attack too.

    While I don't have your same worries about kids, I'm trying madly to get stuff sorted for the baby brother, who is cat sitting the boys. I also have a project to finish and urgent issues to do with another job are cropping up daily.


    At least I will be able to sleep on the plane…

  3. Jenre says:

    urgh. At least I don't have crappy work stuff. Hope the project gets finished soon and you get a couple of days to relax and pack before you fly.

  4. Ingrid says:

    Good luck packing girls.

    Jen how can you impossibly exceed the 30 kg allowance??? It is bloody much. Sounds to me like you want to take too much with you.
    Key words are mix & match and layers.

    They do have shops in the US, in case you have forgotten something

  5. Tam says:

    I'm not panicking yet. It will hit me Monday night with a Wed. departure.

    Life is much easier with an older kid. She has apparently made arrangements with some friend to feed the pets, I will pack my “secondary” suitcase this weekend with stuff like Halloween costumes, blankets, blah blah blah and then clothes Tuesday night.

    As Ingrid said, you can always buy anything you forget. It says there is a coin laundry nearby (boo, no laundry in the apartment) but if we're desperate we can run a load.

    It's much harder with kids though having to get them ready to go somewhere, but as I said, Monday or Tuesday night I'll be in a frenzy I'm sure.

    Mojo Kris, you'll hopefully crash on the plane and land well rested and ready to gamble.

  6. Eyre says:

    Ladies, don't stress! Just think of the fabulous fun you're going to have. If you've forgotten something, someone else will probably have it. Plus, this is America–land of the discount store. You won't go without.

    Kris, hon, I don't know how you're surviving without your daily dose of pron.

  7. Kris says:

    Jen: I leave Friday midnight so will be working up to the very last minute. Blech.

    Ingrid: “They do have shops in the US, in case you have forgotten something.”

    People keep saying that like my OCD will let me think that. It just ain't gonna happen.

  8. Kris says:

    Tam: My brain is so tired that when I read your comment I thought you said that you hoped my plane would crash…


    Eyre: “Kris, hon, I don't know how you're surviving without your daily dose of pron.”

    I know. I think I'm having withdrawals on top of everything else. 😦

  9. Chris says:

    Jen: You can ship things back to the UK. I fully expect us to need to hit a post office to mail things back to ourselves – or, rather, Tracy and I will appear to be mailing gifts to you. 🙂

    Kris: You leave Friday at midnight to arrive here Tuesday morning?! WTF??

  10. Kris says:

    Chris: LOL. I'm going to Vegas first and fly in from there to SF on Tuesday morning. 🙂

  11. Chris says:

    A-ha! So you'll have Customs out of the way. Excellent.

  12. Kris says:

    Yup. I will be the one waiting for you in SF with a 'I'm the Kris part of Khris. Resistance is futile.' sign.

  13. Chris says:

    LOL! Hopefully near the baggage claim. 🙂

  14. No time for pron?!!! This is serious.

  15. Kris says:

    Chris: Hopefully… if I don't get lost…

    KC: I knoez! *sniffle, sniffle*

  16. This better not be one of those “what happens in SF stays in SF” type trips 🙂

  17. Kris says:

    Patti: Hell no. Not when I'm planning on getting Jenre drunk. :DDD

  18. Emilie says:

    I was going to say that you can buy things here, but I see many others have beat me to it. Seriously, you can get toothbrushes and socks and everything.

    Wishing you luck on finishing all those nasty projects and getting everything sorted out. I hope you can just relax and enjoy your visit.

  19. nichem says:

    Aww, don't stress. Take a few deep breaths and relax. Run over to the GR pic thread and get your pron fix. And think of all the fun you're going to have in Vegas and SF!

    I always wait to pack till the last minute myself. But I'm a big procrastinator. And I think I made a list maybe once– on a little scrap piece of paper. My biggest concern when leaving for a trip is making sure I have all the books I want on my Kindle. 😛

  20. ElaineG says:

    OMG! No pron? THREE days?
    Stop what you are doing right this minute missie and GO surfing NOW! I am not sure that one can prevent mental breakdowns without pron breaks. Is true, I participated in an official test….really! Go! Now! Then, after the sanity has returned, make another list 😉

  21. Jenre says:

    Not when I'm planning on getting Jenre drunk

    Double eeeeek!

  22. Kris says:

    Emilie: “Seriously, you can get toothbrushes and socks and everything.”

    Cheeky! Thanks for the wishes, Em. I hop I survive long enough to make it to the plane.

    Richelle: “My biggest concern when leaving for a trip is making sure I have all the books I want on my Kindle. :P”

    LOL. I just found out that my luggage limit is double what I thought it was. Me = books! *GRIN*

    Elaine: What kind of official test was this exactly? Or do I not want to know? 😛

  23. Kris says:

    Jenre: *hehehe*

  24. orannia says:


    Keep thinking of how wonderful it will be to meet everyone…and how you can go splat once you're on the plane! Ahhh, who am I kidding…I'm the world's worst going on holiday person…

    At least your lovely brother is cat-sitting so you know the boys will be OK 🙂

  25. Kris says:

    Orannia: “At least your lovely brother is cat-sitting so you know the boys will be OK :)”

    That's true. He's just giving me nightmares in the meantime about how feral they will be on my return. *sigh*

  26. Mumma J says:

    Girls… Sissy is not exaggerating! I had a phone call this afternoon in which she screamed, cursed and cried! It was pitiful!

    “Feral cats” he he he…

    You know that the Russians are gonna be a whole lot different when you come home!!! I won't be able to stop him 'cos the boy child is just a wee bit taller than his Mumma!

  27. Kris says:

    They fucking changed my flights, Mumma! I was freaked!

    And you better make sure the boy kittens don't go totally feral or no presents for you!

    VC: Eh? MY OCD might be kicking my arse right now… just a little…

  28. Tracy says:

    Hey you're probably on your way now, right? Wait – what day is it in your neck of the woods? Ok, maybe not – but SOON!

    I'm trying not to over think the packing. It will happen – eventually.

    Can't wait to see you! Not often I get to meet a girl in a golden bikini with a cartoon face. 🙂

  29. Kris says:

    Tracy: “Can't wait to see you! Not often I get to meet a girl in a golden bikini with a cartoon face. :)”

    And it wasn't like I was overcompensating or anything…


  30. Kris says:

    Thanks, Ingrid. Cookies are just what I need right now. 🙂
