I always have such a hard time getting ready for any trip, whether for a weekend or a week. It seems you have to bring just about as much stuff anyway!
What makes it hard is going from the extreme cold weather we are experiencing to tropical weather. I find it very hard to not want to pack sweaters and coats! But I'm restraining myself! No winter coats!
For the last week, I have had the spare bedroom covered with "possibilities"--things I might possibly want to take. I have changed things around almost every day, taking this out, putting that in, folding and unfolding, trying to condense things down to a manageable weight! I could easily take two trunks of stuff--not that I am likely to need it all, but "just in case."
On the other hand, Don will probably wait until Friday night to pack, but then he'll spread his stuff out all over the house and still probably forget something important, like his camera charger like last time.
And can you believe this?? We got a phone message TODAY from the cruiseline saying they were overbooked and would we consider changing our cruise--to the end of March! I DON'T THINK SO! We are both so ready to go that even with their pretty hefty incentives, neither of us could be swayed.
So tonight starts the countdown--all the last minute shopping needs and then a whirlwind of packing so things are ready Friday night when I go to bed. Our flight is so early Saturday morning I would have to stay up all night if I didn't get this done ahead of time. And I like to be organized and prepared!
Two more days!
