Why I Know What 2:00 and 3:00 a.m. Look Like

I’m a planner . . . duh. I like to know what’s going on. If I don’t, our controlled chaos quickly turns into just chaos . . . I do not do well with chaos (or crowds . . . but that’s a different story!).

We’re celebrating our 20th anniversary in Hawaii – leave on the 11th. Taking the kiddos for a 6-day trip (yep – quick, but will be fun!). We’ve got just enough planned to see and do things while still allowing A LOT of down time to just be and enjoy.

We don’t get to our rental house until probably 9:30 p.m. Thursday night. We’ll be up early Friday for our drive to Hana (the only day we can do it).

Now that it’s only a week away, my brain has started to “work” (another word for “wonder” or probably more accurately “worry”).

I’ve been up every night this week wondering and thinking about how will this work? Where is that? What will be do?

So I finally took some work time off this morning to take care of my details and hopefully get some sleep tonight :-) Just a few things I’ve had on my mind:

  1. Did we get all of our reservations in order? Why yes – yes we did! I just checked everyone of them and confirmed :-)
  2. Did we end up with the Jeep with 2 doors or 4? My reservation shows 2! Yep – we got 4. Hubby changed the reservation, and I just didn’t get the new one.
  3. What is the address of the rental house? How do we get there from the airport? Hubby got that confirmation and the details earlier this week – and I now have them, too. Whew!
  4. OMG! We’ll get in there pretty late! We’ll need stuff for our road trip on Friday morning. Where will I ever get that stuff Thursday night?!?! OMG OMG OMG! Safeway. Yep. Safeway. 5 minutes from the rental house and open 24 hours. It’s been 20 years since we’ve been there. The place has changed. Not EVERYTHING closes when it gets dark 😉 Crisis (and hungry teenagers) averted!
  5. Should I call the orthodontist and have them check Dude’s permanent retainer? He said he’s been getting a space in his front teeth ever since they replaced it. Is that right? Shouldn’t the permanent retainer keep his teeth together? I mean, I paid all that money for a pretty smile! Yes – nothing to do with Hawaii. But when it’s 2:30 a.m. and you’re tired and your brain is working, this kind of crap joins the party.

So there you have it. A few of the things that have been keeping me up at night this week.

All taken care of.

Now I can relax and sleep and try to contain my excitement at spending our 20th with Hubby in Hawaii and showing the kids where “it” all started :-)
