The excitement is building
The countdown continues for something that feels like it has taken forever to get here but I know it will creep up on me so I've been taking care of some business. Talking to my bank about all my cards that I will use overseas, ordering Euros, confirming a check-in time for my cat at his "hotel", and making a list of all the hotels and tour companies to contact in order to confirm my reservation, not to mention a list of things I need to pack and take with me.
And being the organized freak that I am, I have already selected my seat on the plane. An interesting feature that KLM has now is a Meet & Seat feature, in which you can log in with your Facebook or LinkedIn account and find people who match your interests, language, even company profile. Some might think this is a bit creepy and has a potential "stalking" factor to it but the nice thing is that you can choose what to share or what not to share. Being a single gal, I just had to give it a try. It'll be another great way to meet people and have the flight be a little less lonely. Unfortunately, not many know about it so I was the first person on my plane to use it. Ho-hum. I guess I'll have to strike up conversation the old-fashioned way.
Now that the do-list items are being crossed off, I'm starting to feel the pressure, the stress, and the excitement of the big day. Because of this, I haven't been eating much, my work has been fully distracted by all the things I need to do, and my sleep has been broken by many midnight pee breaks, tossing and turning, and really early mornings. I thought this wouldn't happen until the night of but this trip is in my sights now as opposed to months away so I'm definitely feeling it all.
And on that note, it's time to try and get some shut eye - or at least get some good tossing and turning in.
