A week before every trip we have to take, I start to dread the preparation, the airport negotiation, the constant anticipation...and not in a fun way. Every month we travel to WI for work and every time Xavi has risen to the occasion, but I still spend plenty of time being anxious and dreading the whole trip. The week before I start with the lists - appointments to make, shopping/errands to do, cleaning I'd like to get done, plus packing clothes, food for Xavi, toys, books, supplements, and getting the carry on/diaper bag just right. The real butterflies start two days before and by the day before I'm hoping to have it all done so that I can relax the night before...and drink my coffee sitting down before the car comes to pick us up.
