They say that plans do not survive first contact with the enemy. Apparently this is even true when there is no enemy. So the revised list for before I leave is:

MUST DO BEFORE LEAVING FOR OMAHA:
--bank
--prepare Sampo and other stuff to pack to take with
--pack for Omaha
--set aside clothes for Milwaukee to facilitate packing upon return Monday
--find Christmas stockings in mess that is basement
--grocery shopping for timprov for while markgritter and I are gone
--Target: exchange bookshelf for unbroken version of same, other small items
--resolve state of timprov bedframe question
--call snow removal guy to clarify current/desired state of driveway
--Wed. Afternoon: household maintenance appt.
--Wed. Evening: dinner with people what loves me
--timprov appointment: call to cancel
--prepare trash and recycling for absence

WOULD BE NICE/USEFUL TO DO BEFORE LEAVING FOR OMAHA:
--balance checkbook
--write to Mindy
--deep-condition hair
--remove broken chair from living room
--file papers in filing cabinet in the mess that is the basement
--finish "Scribing a Line"
--check credit card statement
--contact homeowners' insurance company about thingy in letter
