My bags are packed...only 395 days to go!!!

Jump to last reply

So, yes, as pathetic as it sounds I practice packed my bags today for our trip NEXT May and June. It was raining out so I figured what the heck. For our last trip, Aug-Oct 2009 I agree that we brought too much stuff, but I just didn't know how much I could leave at home and still bring everything we (I) needed. Well, it turns out I can leave A LOT at home and still brings lots.

I practice packed a 22" carry on each for my husband and myself today for our six week trip. My husband kept checking on me and laughing. I also needed to fill 3 oz bottles etc for our toiletries since last time we checked bags and brought some 4 oz bottles.

So, I can sleep easy tonight knowing I can fit everything I absolutely must have into a 22" carry on and small purse. Everyone else who is doubting themselves, have faith, if I can do it you can surely do it. I am the queen of, "What if I need it and I don't have it" thinking. Well, go buy it I say now. If you have your passport, your atm cards and any meds you need, anything else can be bought.

I've really grown as a person since I started visiting this site four years ago. :-d
