I grew up in East Texas, and when I lived there, I was full of hopes and dreams. I had ideas of what I wanted to do with my life, and it was exciting. Sometimes, the most exciting part of things is the planning.

I so much agree with Womack.
I don’t know why, but I love planning. I spent nearly a year planning a trip to Ireland (with my daughter) back in 2004. I pored over bus routes, Bed & Breakfasts, tourist attractions and travel books. I became a big fan of Rick Steves and even ordered a backpack from his website, which has proven well worth the money – I still use it on a regular basis, 13 years later!
Again, in 2015, I spent months planning a trip to Montana (with my husband) to visit same daughter. This time I spent hours on Pinterest and Trip Advisor. I wanted to pack as much as possible into our limited time.
I actually even enjoy curriculum and lesson planning. But, I’ve learned throughout the years “The best-laid plans of mice and men often go awry”. I’d like to think I’ve learned to go with the flow a little bit better along the way.
