Tomorrow the 30th annual soc.motss.con begins with a long drive to (indeed, through most of) Pennsylvania. As part of my general trip preparation I clean (so I can come home to a clean house). Today I've:
  • Cleaned the kitchen, living room, and master bathroom surfaces.

  • Dry- and wet-swiffered the upstairs floors.

  • Dusted the inside of the car, removed the "not needed for travel" stuff from the car, grabbed a bag to use for trash, and grabbed a spare towel to use for lumbar support on the drive.

  • Filled up the car's gas tank (despite the reconstruction of the Costco gas station areas).

  • Gone to the bank to get cash (and break some of it into smaller bills to tip housekeeping).

  • Had lunch (ham-n-cheese pocket sammich, chips, and pickle spear)¹ and did the lunch dishes.

  • Mise en placed for dinner (from-frozen chicken cordon bleu and instant "loaded baked potato" mashed potatoes).

  • Packed everything (except the CPAP, laptop,² and toiletries).

  • Took out the recycling (the trash will go out after dinner).
So other than "Sleep and pack up remaining bits" I'm just about ready to go. I'm not looking forward to the drive — best case it's 7 hours and change, plus breaks for [breakfast and] lunch and stretching — but I am looking forward to seeing the folks who'll be there.

¹ After having the pizza buffet for lunch Friday, then takeout pizza for dinner Saturday, Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday, as well as for breakfast Sunday, I wasn't really in the mood for pizza again for lunch today.
²I need something on which I can write my con.report.
