He's making a list....and checking it twice....

To Do List

With take-off scheduled for this Friday night, I have quite a bit still to do or acquire and I'm more than a little surprised:

1) Do laundry so I have clean clothes to wear Dropped off laundry this morning and borrow the jumbo sized suitcase from the roomies Packed and ready to go

2) Purchase a few protein bars to tide me over on the plane and train ride Bought four at Duane Reade last night....got a couple more just in case

3) Purchase Italian-English Dictionary Did this on my lunch hour...do you know how hard it is to find a small Italian to English dictionary with the word "fuck" in it??? and plane/train reading screw this...we'll check out the bookcase to see what needs a good re-read

4) Purchase SPF Sunscreen just in case it's VERY sunny and my Irish skin can't take it Took forever to find but I got it

5) Purchase tickets to go up into the Leaning Tower of Pisa Done this morning on the last possible day I could purchase tix for the date I could go there

6) Look into getting another large memory card for my digital camera Trading memory cards with my boss for the trip

7) Get some batteries so I can brush up on my Italian language CDs on the plane and train ride over I'm going to try to load them into my MP3 player instead.

8) Hire a male escort to "massage" me after the hiking tour I kid...I kid...

9) Investigate internet cafes in Florence to see if I can upload pics to clear out space on the memory card if needed They exist but will get some help from the B&B to point me in the right direction

10) Figure out how to get from the bus station in Venice to the train station Ugh....this part won't be easy....

11) Make sure my Blackberry will work over in Italy It will work. Won't be cheap but it will work...

12) Clean my bedroom I've started Well...maybe I'll finish....

13) Print out all of my B&B confirmations, directions, and phone numbers Check and double check. I'm ready to go!

14) Check into the lube/condoms thing that Brad told me about in a comment I have enough in supply now to last me...unless I turn into a raging whore while I'm gone....

15) See if I need to get some more Tylenol PM to help me out at night after a long hike 100 caplets is enough right???

16) Refill my diabetes prescriptions and make sure I take enough lancets and test strips for the glucose monitor Yep....all done....

17) Enjoy myself while I'm gone.....
