My friends are skeptical about my claim of packing light. This post will be unusual because it is photographic evidence and comments regarding my “luggage” for my trip that starts tomorrow. I will fly to California tomorrow and spend five nights with my son and his bride. We will stop off to get a few products like deodorant and shampoo before we go home for the evening.
Foreground is jeans and tennies for wearing. See the backpack in the background? A pair of pants, a pair of shorts, a few t-shirts, swimsuit, pajamas, undies are assembled on the bed.
Rolled up to stow. Jewelry and undies in the small bags.
Room to spare in this regular student size backpack (Wal-mart).
My purse has a journal and small notebook that I carry most of the time everywhere. Plenty of empty space here.
These items will load in the morning.
Purse, backpack, white denim jacket, Nook bag. I weighed the whole lot and it comes in at 16 pounds or so.
Almost ready for take-off!
One thing wrong with the whole deal. He won’t fit in my bag. Already the pain of missing him has started. I will have to enjoy the company of our children doubly for his not getting to be there, too.
