I am just so happy today haha! Do you ever get in a really good mood, like so good you talk really gooffy to the cats or sing random songs, or even just skip in your own home? Haha! Yeah, that’s the kind of mood I’m in. I love those moods, as while I’m typically in a decent mood, it’s been awhile since I’ve just been giddy happy.
I’m packing today! I’ve been putting stuff on the table as I think of it so that I had all my stuff in one place. I had my tank tops in zip lock bags, but they didn’t really work being packed like that. I had all my toiletries and stuff in a travel bag and stuff was just kinda collecting. So I finally decided to test out Carol’s suitcase today.
I put my street pack in first because it’s pretty flat, then the rolled up duffel bag Georgie lent me in case I need an extra bag coming home. With just those 2 things I started thinking, there’s no way it’s all gonna fit. Well, my packing skills never cease to amaze me lol!
I managed to get everything in there. All my clothes, socks, graduation dresss, toiletry bag and other odds and ends like the instant coffee crammed into a travel mug and a spoon haha! I stuffed socks and rolled up tank tops in the crevices the bags made lol. Then I rolled all my other items. My Dad taught me years ago that the best way to pack is roll clothes. He learned that in boot camp. So all the necessities are packed and there’s still room for the last minute stuff like my little teddy bear. Yes, my teddy bear. I can’t sleep without Snuggles hehehe!
I also got out my backpack that I’ll be using for carry on. It’s a great backpack, with a laptop compartment with a padded sleeve. I rolled up my raincoat, a pair of jeans and a shirt, socks and undies, just in case. Mom taught me to always have a change of clothes in carry on. I love that backpack because I can cinch it up with the outer straps to keep it as small as possible.
The suitcase is one of those that extends up, so I wanted to make sure the stuff going doesn’t need that much space, so hopefully I can expand the suitcase coming back. It’s also got those straps inside to cinch everything down. Those are a pain to keep track of while you’re packing, but they work like a charm in making more room.
So whoo hoo! Got the majority of that done. Later on I’m gonna wash the Vittles Vault and the dog bowls. Then I’m done! Oh yeah, still gotta finish listening to the clicker lecture and the guest lectures. I’m having a hell of a time staying attentive to those cds. I’m a very hands on person, so stuff doesn’t make much sense and my mind wanders. Gotta finish them so I can pack. Got my plane tickets tucked away in my backpack. Yay!! Oh and I played with the little alarm clock I got from Miss A and it works like a charm. So very easy to set, so that’ll be great to take. I just gotta pop the batteries because it’s really easy to make it talk lol!
Man, I love happy days. They are just the best!!! I’m getting oh so so so excited. I wanna go now, now now now!!! Haha!!!
Happy happy joy joy!
4 days, count em, 4!!!!
