Packing for Journalfest

I'm off to Journalfest tomorrow.  I did most of my packing last night, just a few things to put in the suitcase tonight, plus doing several last minute things (like write blog entries for the rest of the week!)

Getting lots of help from the kitten caboodle, who take turns sitting on or playing with the suitcases:

My plane leaves at 6:15 a.m. tomorrow morning ("oh dark thirty", as my friend Kate would say).  I just realized today that that means I have to get up at about 3 a.m. to get ready and get to the airport in time.  Luckily, it's less than 10 minutes from home by cab, so that helps.  Hopefully I will have no trouble getting up that early.  I woke up at 3:10 this morning and could not get back to sleep.  I lay in bed until about 4, then got up and did a few of the things that were swirling about in my brain.  At 5, I lay down again and managed to doze until 6 when the alarm went off.  So maybe I can do it again tomorrow- fingers crossed! I don't imagine I'll get much sleep tonight though, I'm too excited!
