Just call me Mrs. Plan everything

There was a time years ago that I would just go with the flow. Fly by the seat of my pants type of girl.
THEN age set in and the feeling that if I don't plan out everything I might forget something.
My wonderful husband, the man I love with all my heart is a go with the flow kinda guy. And I know I annoy the hell out of him with my let's make a list of everything. I have to have every minute of every day planned out.
Dinner is everyday at 5:30 no exceptions
My day off every week is always Thursday (unless like this week I have a meeting) no exceptions
I pack for vacations two or three weeks in advance no exceptions.
I have to have a plan for the airport, the rental car, shuttle service, hotel, etc NO exceptions
I must have hotel arrangements months in advance the miles we travel each day balanced ( No exceptions.
We are planning on traveling across Canada on Highway 17 which goes from one end to the other and just stopping when we want and staying wherever we want and that scares the hell out of me.
I just want to scream at the top of my lungs WHAT THE HELL happened to that carefree fly by the seat of her pants girl? AND CAN I GET HER BACK FAST!!!!!
You see I need her back and fast because we leave for Alaska in just over a month. I want to be free, live free, and not have a care in the world in the most amazing place in the world.
So, any ideas? How can I get over this OCD thing I have just developed since I oh my god I can't believe I am saying this..... am getting close to 50!!!!!!!!

Where oh where did that girl of the 30's go? And who stole my last 20 years? And please give them BACK! and when you do could you give me back that size 10 body? PLEASEEEEEEEEE

OK Veronica, it has nothing to do with age at all I have been this way for many many years, I was raised with scheduling. when I was growing up there was a day or day's to do the laundry,vacuuming at a special time each and every day the floors got scrubbed every day. MY Grandmother and my Mom did things always on a schedule lunch was at 12:00 not any later dinner was at 5;30 not later. everything was always ironed even the dust rags. sheets and towels too.
Well they say Apples don't fall far from the tree well I am doing the same things they both did. But no not my sister she does it all her own way . they are lucky if she even cooks LOL. WE do the things we were raised with not due to age and I am now 56 and I have been doing all my life. you can not clean if you do not move the furnature.
So see you are not along glad to see there are more devoted women in this world. and it all works so don't change a thing!
Hugs,
