To know me, is to know that I am a crazily, obsessive planner. I make daily To-Do lists. I talk to myself about what I need to get accomplished. I double check after I’ve done things to make sure I really have them in the order I want them done it. I drive myself nutty. I stress and worry and, then stress some more. IP does not. He has more of a grab and go persona, not seeing the point in wasting time stressing out or worrying. In his mind’s eye, it will be what it is. Being laid back has it’s advantages sometimes, but not always…..
Peter once went to Baltimore
He packed as he ran out the door
Day two came around
No new shirts to be found
Stinky traveler in the same shirt on day four
Summer means vacation. Being the Type A I am, I began my pre-pre-planning by making lists of the things we would need to pack for an upcoming trip. IP takes a quick peek at my list and begins to mock me.
“You actually put ‘clothes’ on your list. Do you really think that was necessary?”
“This from the man who flew to Baltimore without any shirts.”
(Insert image of IP sticking his tongue out at me.)
FYI ~ If this whole blogging/parenting/social working/household managing/trip planning thing doesn’t work out for me, I think I have a future in limerick writing.
