Friday Fragments - Panic is Setting In

So Unknown Mami is hosting Friday Fragments for the summer while Mrs. 4444 is on vacation. Thank you for stepping up to host this exciting part of my week.

This time tomorrow I'll be jetting my way to China. Panic is setting in. I haven't made any lists of what to pack. I need to figure that out before I pack I guess. I did go and buy some things I'll need (including snacks) so I don't think I need to go to the store today. Except for foundation. I thought I would have enough last night and when I used it this morning and I don't think so. 

I also need to take my car into the dealership and leave it for them to fix a few things. I've taken it in a few times to have them look at the remote key lock/unlock feature. Of course it always works for them. I have it narrowed down that when the temperature gets either really hot or really cold it stops working. Since it will be in the 90's they can leave the car outside all day and they try the keys. And they can keep it multiple days until it doesn't work. I want this thing fixed.

I got everything done that I could for Mom's move here. I need to write a note to put with all the documents for her since she arrives while I'm gone but that shouldn't take too long.

I think I've killed one of my basil plants. I thought I had overwatered it but Dan thinks a bug got to it and ate all the leaves. All that is left is the stalk.

I also may have trimmed my day lily plant wrong. I've never had one before and I'm afraid I've screwed it up.

I got my hair colored and cut yesterday and went and got my nails done. So at least I can look beautiful when I'm gone. My stress level should go down once I get on the plane because I won't be able to do anything and any problems with the symposium will not be mine. I'm tired of people cancelling on me.

And that's it folks. I'm not sure if I'll be able to blog while in China. Well I can blog I don't know if I can post. So I may have a bunch of posts waiting to upload when I get home. There are a lot of website that get blocked by the government.


  1. Safe travels and enjoy your trip. Are you speaking or listening? My daughter went to China with the People to People group when she was in high school. What an incredible experience it was for her. I hope you have great weather, too!

  2. Oh my gosh, safe travels!!
    I'm 100% sure you will relax once you get on the plane!
    Have fun!

  3. You can't kill a day Lilly. Seriously. If it dies off wait til next year, it'll be good as new.

  4. China sounds great. I think you will be fine. Forget your anxiety and enjoy.

  5. Hope you have safe travels and post some pictures and stories when you get back!

  6. Have a wonderful trip!!! I would like to visit China someday. I killed my cilantro and dill plants. I thought I killed off my pole beans, but a few extra watering rounds and they are coming back.

    Looking forward to pictures of your trip :-)

  7. I hope it is a safe and wonderful trip.

  8. I am so jealous, have a most fabulous time and take tons of pictures you will have the time of your life!
