I'm leaving for Uganda on Monday. Actually, I'm leaving for Amsterdam on Monday and Uganda on Tuesday, if you want to be technical about it. All I can say for sure is that right now I am surrounded by lists of things I need to do. I'm happy to say that the major tasks have been crossed off (ticket, passport, visa, shots, paying my taxes). Now it's the little niggly things that need to get done (buying pens and memory sticks, packing nail clippers and neosporin, paying the last PG&E bill) and they are driving me crazy. Not because they are important to remember, but because they aren't. And yet they are on my list.
One of the things on my list was "set up blog," and I can now cross it off. It's a very satisfying thing, crossing one more thing off my list. There's lots I want to write, but there's lots still on my list (such as "pack"), so if I add more to this blog before I arrive, I will be pleased. But I make no promises.
