I'm not sure if I can do this but I am so going to challenge myself. Next Friday, I'm leaving for Australia (whee!). I'm one of those people that has work on the brain pretty much 24x7. It's not usually a stress thing, it's just how I am; always thinking. I come up with some of my best ideas or decisions in the shower or while I am driving.

Part of my trip is work, part is play. So I do plan on checking in every few days (which I think will not make my manager happy because she likes us to unplug completely, but that would actually make it harder for me to relax). Plus, I'll be blogging my trip. So I'll be online. Not really working but just seeing what's going on.

One of the things that I thought would help me is to eliminate all the old stuff in my inbox. I'm generally pretty good about touching e-mail once (filing and deleting are my favorites), so mostly all that's left are the mails I have to do something with. And there are about 100 of them. Can I get through all of them so I leave for my trip with a squeaky clean inbox? Or am I just kidding myself?

I have a lot of other things to do to prep for my trip and I am sure I am forgetting something. Can I do it?
