DC trip and my spreadsheet

I am a fly by the seat of my pants planner.

I love adventures, but I will make sure I am prepared-or at least as much as I can be given time. For the DC trip, this included a spreadsheet covering each day. Mom and Aunt Thelma laughed at me, but it came in handy. Here is mom shaking her head at my color coded spreadsheet for our trip.

I dislike sitting around, waiting for plans to be made. I planned each day around the prearranged tours, and had musuems listed that were nearby. This was to cut out unnecessary walking back and forth. I also color coded the pre-arranged tours and museums differently so they would be able to figure out where we had set in stone timed-tours and just drop-in trips to museums.

I made sure to list places to eat that would be around us that I knew they would like, which meant Coke products for my aunt.  They laughed, but they were very happy when I would pull it out of my purse to find that Diet Coke my aunt wanted.
