Avoidance

Look at me, blogging instead of packing! I'm an experienced traveler, but that does *not* mean that I am a good packer. Wow. Packing sucks.

Quick update on possible Detroit meetup: thanks to those who have expressed interest here on the blog or via email. I'm still not sure what will work, but hope to make a decision by Friday and post the plan then. I need to touch base with the inlaws once we arrive to see what will work. Stay tuned.

The kids are so excited about their trip that they decided to go ahead and pack their loveys before bed so as not to risk forgetting them in the morning and traveling without them. My mom will be here at the unholy hour of 4:15 a.m. to pick us up and go to the airport. We are checked in, boarding passes are printed, and two pieces of checked luggage are prepaid. I just need to go put some clothes in a bag for myself and pull together some snacks. Think anyone would notice if I just wore the same outfit for six days? Even if it's yoga pants and a hoodie?

Fine, I'll pack at least one change of clothes. You people are so pushy.

Happy travels to all those traveling. Happy not traveling to those who are staying home.

Next post from Michigan.

Here's to a safe, uneventful trip!! Also, on my last trip I took only some jeans and the same fleece top in a couple of different colors. Just sayin'.

Just wondering...with the new au pair situation - is she going with you? just hanging back at your house? how does that work?

Have a safe trip! I'm with you on the waiting-til-the-last-minute-to-pack thing. Do you think it's a Peace Corps thing?!

Here's to safe travels and no more than one change of clothes :) Have a great trip!

Have a great time! I'm a geek packer. I lay out outfits and try to figure out the right balance between just enough and just in case (all while being comfortable of course!).

Do they have a washer/drying where you are going? Then I say one outfit for the plane and one to wear when you get there. I love to travel light!
