Quick Trip

By the time you read this, I’ll be in Palm Springs where I’ll be speaking to the Palm Springs Pi Phi alums tomorrow and then meeting my mother’s friends in her new Palm Desert community before hopping on an early flight home Tuesday morning.

My youngest son Ty is going with me while the older son stays home, attends the WWE show coming to town, and has a friend over. Things are good but hectic, and while stress is creeping in a bit, I always feel stress before I head out on a trip, whether its a twenty-four, forty-eight, or two week thing. There just always seems to be so much to do–lists to be left, arrangements to be made, shopping done, checks and cash set aside. How do we accomplish what we need to accomplish without our heads exploding? I’ve become a queen of lists–list for babysitter, list for assistant, list for Jane, second list for Jane, third list for Jane…

In honor of our Presidents weekend, I’ve got three fun giveaways–a cheerful red and white cherry print hot mitt, a scented pie candle courtesy my friend Kari Andersen, a 10 Barnes & Noble gift card, plus tons of JP reader goodies like my new Easy On The Eyes mirror, pen, nail file, bookmark and more. Just share what you’re doing this weekend, or tell me how you cope when you’re really busy, and you’ll be entered in the drawing. My Presidents Day Weekend contest ends Tuesday night at midnight PST and I’ll pick three winners and announce on Wednesday morning. Until then, have a great weekend and rest, relax and recuperate!
