A new twist: calling and leaving messages for myself, as in things not to forget upon arrival. And ordering stuff for delivery there, and feeling less like I’m visiting than going to my other home. Which doesn’t make leaving any less stressful or packing any less ridiculous (something sweet about knowing I’m taking more than I need but enjoying stuffing the suitcases anyways). My mental worrylist extends and contracts like a Slinky over the course of the day. My memory yells at me in random Owen Meany bursts. CLOTHES IN DRYER!!! STOP NEWSPAPER DELIVERY!!! CHANGE PHONE MESSAGE!!!

Two more sleeps…
