I leave one week from today.

Somehow it doesn't feel real yet, unless I start looking over documents and my lists of things to do.  Then I feel unprepared and get overwhelmed.

So I'm taking a very avoidance approach to this whole thing.  As soon as I start to feel stressed, instead of freaking out, I just avoid doing anything Martinique-related.  Whenever my mind starts to buzz and I feel overwhelmed, I just pour myself a glass of wine.

So far this approach hasn't helped to cross much off my to-do list, but I am doing a good job at helping my parents out with their abundant supply of alcohol...
