Eye of Newt & Unicorn Whiskers

Parents of school-aged children probably know from the title of this post that it must be time for Kindergarten Registration!

They ask for the silliest things with these application forms.

I’ve also discovered that the Open Enrollment in our area is an intricate game and not for the faint of heart!ย  I’ve written about it today over at Mile High Mamas.

What “DIY” REALLY means to me.

Yes, it’s true! We are in the midst of a “minor” Kitchen Remodel. No, I’m not sure what we were thinking, but it sounded like a good idea at the time…ย  ๐Ÿ˜‰

Over at Mile High Mamas, I wrote about our forays into the wonderful world of DIY. We’ve been doing this for over 9-years now. Can you believe it?

Featured Elsewhere: My NYC Recap at Mile High Mamas!

Yes, some random stranger offered to take my photo, and I'm so glad she did! Thanks, Random Stranger! (Yes, I told her it was OK to tip the camera to get all of both of us in the shot.)

I have a confession to make: I knew I was going to have a great time in NYC for BlogHer10 before I even got there. Yes, it’s true. I’d decided before I even had my bags packed.

You can do that?
Yes, you can, and I do it before every trip I take.

Will things work perfectly? No. Do I expect them to? Absolutely not. Would I want them to? Of course! Casual or not, I am a perfectionist, after all.

Does any of this matter on my final evaluation of the trip? No, not in the least.

If the perfection of a trip decides my happiness, I’d never be a happy camper. If I never got to dip into my Bag o’ Plan B Tricks, things would be rather boring, right?

So, before every trip, I decide that I’m going to have a good time regardless of what the reality of the situation dictates. It’s my Travel Zen Mentality, and it’s worked like a charm all the years I’ve been traveling.

This trip was a little different, so I knew I needed to really take a full dose of it this time, because for the first time ever, I’d be traveling by myself.

Well, as “by myself” as I could be with thousands of people around me at any given moment.

The potential to think too much about that and all the What Ifs could eat me alive if I wasn’t careful.

I was going to explore NYC by myself, and I couldn’t wait!
