Packing Lessons

I think I need lessons in packing. I don't know why I feel like I need to take everything in the world with me when I go on a short trip. There are little booklets and pens and crosswords and things to do hidden in my purse, my backpack, my suitcase.  What I really need are clothes, a book, some music, my toiletries, my comb, some medicines I might need. That's it.

I think I have to go back to the backpack and unload some stuff. It is too heavy. If I didn't touch it last time I went on a trip, I don't know what makes me think I will use it this time.

I will try to blog from the trip, but I may have to do manual entries for a day or two and then catch up and type them in.  Handwritten posts still count in keeping my commitment to myself to write every day - there is just a little anticipation before I get it all posted on the blog.

It will be nice to get out of town for a few days (business and pleasure). I will be missing the "arctic cold front" that is here now and bringing in 20 degree weather at the end of February. I'm not sad about missing that, for sure.
