50 Pounds

Soooooo, today I packed my life away- I am only leaving for a month but I think I packed for 5 months.

And before you start saying, “just pack what you need”….”when in doubt, leave it out”…. I have to tell you something:

I CAN’T! suitcase

I am the person who packs because a) I don’t want to be over there thinking, “…if I had brought my (fill in the blank) I would feel so much better” and b) I don’t want to buy any more clothes than I need/already have.

On that note, I should tell you that the airport has a 50 pound max on luggage without charging extra and my bag currently weighs…51 pounds. I plan on ditching the mouthwash and body wash I have for me and my roommates if it is over at the airport. And if all else fails I will move some pants or shoes or something over to my carry-on. I’m not worried, but I can’t believe I packed that much shit.  (Oh, and I should tell you that I used space saver bags- they worked like a champ!)

Tomorrow, my roomie Cortney is coming to my house sometime after 1 or 2 and we will do whatever last minute stuff we have. After that I think we will just chill on the pier and soak in the last of the Wisconsin summer sun until July 🙂

I will be blogging from the airport (hopefully) so I will “see” you all soon!!!

Pulled out some jeans and a T-Shirt that seemed clean,
Topped it off with a pair of old shoes”
