I also have to make arrangements to have my mail held, I have to pay a good portion of my bills in advance to avoid charges/late fees, and I have to start planning meals around what I already have - I don't want to leave a kitchen full of food, because it's not going to be pretty when I get back in August. I also have to decide if I should buy a larger suitcase (I have one, and it's closer to carry-on size than BIG) or simply mail a box of clothes and things to the Clarion office. Despite my fantasies of bringing one small suitcase of things for six weeks, it's just not going to work. My carry-on will be my laptop and irreplaceable items (glasses, ipod, DVD's), so everything else has to go in the suitcase this time.
This weekend I'm getting my new laptop, so I'll have enough time to get used to it, and make sure it's glitch-free. I, however, will probably come to Clarion chock-full of glitches. Just warning everyone! :)
