What have I got myself into?

I must be insane. My Mom talked me into driving from Eastern Ontario to Alberta for a family reunion (Dad's side). It will be lots and lots of driving and driving and driving. On top of it, I seem to have volunteered to gather all the information for our family tree branch and put it into a PowerPoint presentation.

You would think that was enough. No, apparently, it wasn't. I had to suggest we burn CDs with everyone's presentations and electronic pictures. I am the one with the know-how, so I'll be doing the burning at the reunion.

I am very nervous about this reunion; but that is subsiding a little. I haven't seen any of these people since I was really, really young. I really don't remember them. I guess I'll just have to get to know them now. I'd like to be a whole lot thinner; but I'm giving up that idea. They will see me as I am.

I think the nervousness comes from meeting new people. Even though I have met most of them at some point in my life, I still consider them new because I don't remember much from my youth. I'm not a joiner and I am not comfortable in new situations. I'm sure I'll be fine once I get there. Damn, I hate this anticipation thing. I always imagine the worst. At least things usually turn out better than I imagine. Preparing for the worst means I am usually pleasantly surprised and also, well, prepared in case something goes wrong. In this case, it means I will take cross stitch and Sudoku with me so I am not bored.
