I hate packing, but I think I hate unpacking even more. I brought so much shit back from my vacation its not even funny. No, seriously, its not funny.
I’d show you a picture, but its too embarrassing how much crap I brought back with me (plus, who wants to see my underwear, right?). I don’t know how to freaking pack for a vacation. Maybe there are support groups out there for people like me who over pack? What do you think?
The day I left for my vacation, I went over to my friends place before we left for Buffalo. You see, we flew out of Buffalo, yeah, not doing that again – I’ll pay the extra and fly out of Pearson. Anyways, my suitcase was heavy and I was thinking to myself “self, what the hell do you have in your suitcase and do you really need to bring two backpacks with you?”. Yeah, I brought two backpacks, one with my laptop and the other as an extra that was holding stuff (I won’t go into details).
So, I came to my senses, somewhat, and did a bit of unloading and left my extra backpack and other things I wasn’t going to use at my friends place before we left for Buffalo. I was able to fit everything into one suitcase and still had some room. I was quite proud of that – I down sized.
While in Florida, I did buy a few things, but not enough to over load my suitcase. But my weakness, and it always has been, is shoes. And, they are bulky, even if they were just sandals. Oh, and did I mention that I had promised myself no spending money on shoes? Right, and that worked out horribly, but I’m giving it another go, no shoes as of now! No, really!!
Anyways, with all the sandals I bought, it definitely took up the extra room I had. My friend bought a hell of a lot more than I did, cause she’s a shopper, I’m a shoe shopper, she’s a everything shopper. So, I packed some of her stuff in my suitcase, which then over loaded it. Now I’m left with sorting it all cause we got home so late that I just brought it all home with me. I need the suitcase for my business trip which is in less than 2 weeks…so I need an empty suitcase and I have to start thinking about what to pack for this business trip. Aiya! 😀
