outa here!


I've been busy today cleaning, running errands, writing letters, checking emails.... doing everything but pack! What you don't know about me is I'm relentless at packing and unpacking, packing and repacking, unpacking, rearranging, and repacking again. For days prior to a trip I pack and unpack; try to fine tune my items; trying not to overpack but yet not underpack. I hate traveling! I'm a horrible packer! I take way more than I ever need or will use but I take it. Some of it is my comfort zone--my writing tablet, a deck of cards; some of it is my routine--a calculator, pencil, and budget. I take too many magazines and books that don't get read; not to mention the survival food.... I don't know where I think I'm going but am almost certain that there will be washer and dryers where I go.... and stores to buy a new magazine if need be.... and food.... Yet I pack it.
For whatever reason I'm procrastinating and have yet to pack. We leave in the morning for a much needed vacation.... and know once we leave, I'll be fine. I just don't much like to travel. Anyway, talk to you in a couple weeks!

I know, I always pack way to many things to read and I always pack a few granola bars (you never know) LOL!

Have a fabulous vacation!

Have a great trip - I'm an awful packer too. I agonize over what to bring and always bring way too much. I never bring enough books though - doesn't matter how many I take, I'm always done with them half way through the trip!

Well, there's another thing we have in common...I don't like traveling much, and always procrastinate too long with packing because I dislike doing it. However, I love my granddaughter and the only way to see enough of her is to travel so the payoff is worth it! Have a lovely trip.
