I was motivated to get up early and load up the car. 'Cause I'm spending the day with my daughter!
The hubby has some things to do around here (at the in-laws) but when it's time for him to meet up with us, he only has to put the suitcase and computer bag into the car. Everything else was loaded before 8 a.m. by my very own hands :-) We're heading to Michigan later in the day. Tonight we're visiting the church that just took on some of our support.
I was a little too efficient this morning, packing the hubby's daily vitamins and the cheese we had wanted at breakfast. Minor details, minor details.
So we're hitting the big metropolis of Ft. Wayne today. The daughter has a list of stores and things she's looking for, in order to create some very cool things to sell at an upcoming street event. I'm just along for the ride. Oh and to buy the biggest possible package of t.p. at Sam's Club (that we'll use as filler in the bigger suitcases so we don't go over the 50 lb. per bag limit).
The first time I went to Argentina (1996) I went prepared! Hearing horror stories of inadequate facilities and non-existent toilet paper while traveling cross country, I took AN ENTIRE SUITCASE OF CHARMIN. Oh yes I did! And it came in so handy! It lasted just over three of the four weeks we were there. And while the reality wasn't quite so horrible (things had improved in the almost 20 years since the hubby had been there) we were often, and I repeat OFTEN, glad for the foresight of moi in the packing of that particular suitcase.
My needs are simple, and soft bathroom tissue is one of them. So what is the one thing you-cannot-live-without-when-traveling?
