Oh My what an amazing accomplishment already!!!! I should do a list too...but I think I would feel better if I write the list after I have done the things. Though I am in the "clearing out" mode at the moment. A holiday does that to you, when you realsie you can do without so many things while away and still actually "survive".

Looking forward to reading about your holiday!!
