My poor travel-stressed hubby  
It's been a while since I've traveled with Mark and I had forgotten how stressed he gets before trips. :P Mark is a person who likes to know how things turn out before embarking on adventures - while I'm the COMPLETE opposite. The unknown is what I love about traveling. :) He is never fully happy until we're on the plane heading home from a vacation (because, only then does he know how everything turns out...) ;)

Last year our schedules were such that we didn't travel at all together... I went on my mid-January NYC trip last year with my Mom, while Mark went with his family to Japan in April. So it has been a while since I've had to experience "travel-stressed" hubby. ;)

As the date of our trip draws closer, he will spend his time staring blankly into his suitcase mumbling, "shirt, socks, pants, shoes..." to himself over & over - which has become a pre-trip ritual for him. ;) I always tell him that forgetting something is a good excuse to go shopping, but somehow he never seems to find that too amusing. ;) This is why we rarely travel together... I think. ;)

Despite my teasing, I am SOOOOO thrilled that Mark is joining me on this trip! It's been so long since we've been in NYC together, I want to take him to eat at all the great places that I've discovered since the last time we were there - that I know he'll just love. :) We're definitely going to Tony's DiNapoli, Say Cheese, Zen Palate, and SOOO many other places! :) Aside from all the theatre, I'm excited about all the eating we're going to do! :D (Though not too excited to jump on the scale when I return home, however...) :P

And while we're gone, we're leaving Cooper dog in the company of my Mom and her neurotic dog, Yuki. We've been monitoring the two dogs together over the holidays and I think they'll be just fine together. We hope that Yuki doesn't teach Cooper to be afraid of tile... or doorways,... or stairs while we're gone. :0

Now, if I can just get through the next 4 days of work, I'll be good. ;)

I'm off to work on Kristi's FB fan page and some other web work. Hope you've all had a nice weekend! HUGS!!

OMG am I going through this!!!!

Gil is FREAKING because we will be in hawaii in 2 months, and we haven't booked our activities for each day yet. And I am like "This is INSANE dude.. we are talking HAWAII... LAID BACK... take a walk, get some sushi, screw in the sand dunes, go shopping..." but NO.... Mr. OCD wants a morning and evening activty planned for each day. sigh....

Ahaha!! I'm glad I'm not the only one! :) And, you're going to be here! :) Yes, just relax on the beach, eat sushi,... that's a perfect Hawaii vacation! :)

God help me if he makes me go to another freakin fire juggling show. :)
We are going to Kauai, hopefully for quiet time.

Yes, I was like Mark. But that changed a lot - since the one vacation where we missed the ferry, the horse had to stay at an unknown stable and we had to sleep in the car with the dogs who thought that they had to bark as soon as somebody switched on any light - I definitely take things much easier. :) Perhaps because it still was a nice vacation. :)

I'm hoping that you will have a great time and I'm crossing my fingers that Cooper will not learn any silly things! Big hugs to you, Sheri! :)
