Time for travel, yet again. This time I am headed to the States for three weeks, probably our last visit for a while. Lots to do before we go but the biggest hurdle for me is always the packing. I don’t mind packing for the kids or helping my husband getting his stuff together it’s packing for myself that can bring on a full-blown panic attack. Okay maybe not that bad but my husband knows to steer clear once the suitcase comes out.
I open the closet door and I have absolutely nothing to wear! Surprisingly I am able to get dress everyday but apparently these outfits do not translate into a suitcase. I don’t have the right shoes or the right accessories. And the What ifs… What if I have to go somewhere fancy? What if the weather changes? What if I need comfortable shoes? What if the comfortable shoes don’t match my outfit? Add in air travel requirements of bag size and weight ARRRH. I know, I know, your exhausted just reading about it. Imagine how my husband feels. He waits until the morning of departure before he even ponders if he has clean underwear so I know he doesn’t get it.
Why this is such a problem? I guess the control freak in me needs to be prepared for all things and sometimes that is just not possible. So I am taking a deep breath and this go round I am trying my best not to stress out
too much . I can shop when I get there, right?
If I ever get packed I will be headed across the sea on Monday and will catch up with you guys on the other side.
Wish me luck and if you have any bright ideas on the subject be sure to drop me a line.
Until then I will be grabbing my “travel musts” and hoping for the best…
