Exactly one week and one day until we head to Philadelphia to pick up the shirts. It’s similar to the feeling of the week before my birthday or the week before Christmas, only slightly more anxiety-inducing.

I think I’m safely in the eustress realm. However, could tip one way or the other at this point, depending on whether or not I make it to the post office this weekend. Trying to mail a giant box of genealogy documents to my mother to store in her attic. The box is, of course, lined with acid-free paper. The acid-free paper is from a batch I bought to print out DAR applications. Cleaning out the home office is like an archeological dig through my former hobbies. Dan built me a shelf to hang the shirts on. I have a nice husband.
