I leave for Nashville early on Thursday morning. If I’d been more on top of things, I would have used this past weekend to get caught up ahead on laundry, grocery-buying, etc.

You can probably guess that I didn’t.

I did, however, have some sort of stomach bug, so that’s something. And now that Annalyn is in bed, I’ve found the living room floor again, so that’s good.

But I am SO far from ready to go on a four-day trip! The next three days are going to be crazy. Getting ready is definitely do-able, but it’s going to be a stretch.

How do you do it? When you travel out of town, do you have a routine? Are you a packing list type person (guilty.) or a throw-it-in-the-bag-and-go person? Plan for weeks or scramble at the last minute? And does anyone have a truly sanitary way to store a toothbrush?
