Get some sleep.
I am not a morning person.
You probably already knew that.
I wanted people to like me.
I wanted to like me.
I decided to forgo sleep the night before we left on our trip.
That is right.
Because technically, I wasn't being made to wake up.
I already was.
Do you see the method to my madness?
Don't try this at home.
Not a good idea.
A day or two ahead.
Or an hour or two.
Do not wait until 4:00 am to pack.
You will not need to provide snacks for all 56 passengers.
You will not need 6 pairs of shoes for 3 days.
You will not need to bring 7 books.
And Ring-a -word books.
There will be times you will not be on the bus.
The less you pack, the more room you will have.
This is a great tool blogger offers.
But write ahead.
A day or two.
Do not wait until 2:00 am to compose three posts.
You will be silly.
You will make no sense.
And a Christmas post may appear out of nowhere.
Everything does not have to be clean before you leave.
The baseboards will wait.
And the ceiling fans.
So what if the spices are out of ABC order.
Did I just say that?
Just be sure you have cleared a path from the back door to the bed.
It is a long time before the first rest stop.
And you will seriously consider chewing your arm off.
Eat before you leave.
