i used to love to pack
like when i would spend the night
at nana and baba's
i'd throw the essentials
{undies, jammies, toothbrush}
into this little diddy

and be ready to roll
i even packed it once
to run away!
i got to the corner.
but i had what i needed
in case my feet carried me farther!

as a mom
packing has taken on
a whole new meaning
and since the airlines
are imposing fees for
just about everything
but wiping your @$$,
it has become a strategic
how much
stuff can i stuff
into one bag
without going over 50 lbs?
and how can i keep
the number of bags
to a minimum
and keep my hands free
for most of the trip?

so that is what i am doing tonight...
playing the packing game!

we are headed east for our
spring break
visiting family and friends
and look forward to every minute of it...
just not the packing!

Packing sucks!

Hubby and I usually pack together but no more. When we went to visit my little sis, our bag weighed 49.7 lbs. LOL

Hope you had a wonderful trip and can't wait to hear all about it!
