Time to get packing
I’m so not a packer.
I’m a great flyer. You may not want to hear this but I have a theory — if the plane goes down, we are all going to die so why stress about it? Nice right? My family and friends don’t appreciate this much. But it works for me.
Flying with my kids is a little stressful for me. But I just try to take it one hour at a time. Flying without my kids is like a trip to the spa. I can read, have a snack, a fizzy drink, then a little snooze. Maybe I’ll watch a film. Snooze a little more, time for a cup of tea and a crossword puzzle. Sounds nice right? I wonder when that will happen again…
My big European vacation is quickly approaching and I’m stressing about packing. I really want to pack light, I am even planning on doing laundry when I get to home base in England. But how many pairs of shoes do we need? How much workout wear? How many pajamas do we each take with us? How many sweaters should I pack? Toys? Crayons? Paper? Books? It’s making me a little crazy and I have to admit that I’m doing what I always do — trying my best to ignore it and hopefully all the laundry will be done by the day before my trip and then everything will magically fall into two suitcases.
Are you a pro packer? We have one of these in our family, I’m so jealous… Do you have any tips for me?
