The Kitchen Sink....

I don't know about anyone else but I am an admitted over-packer whenever we go away. It doesn't matter if it's for 2 weeks or 2 days -- I take everything!! Every trip I say I'm going to be better. I say I'll limit myself. Then the packing starts. I start second guessing myself...

What if we need to change for dinner? --that's another outfit.

What if the girls spill stuff all over their clothes? --another outfit.

How about I take an extra shirt to go with those shorts? --this is my way of getting 2 wears in 1 pair of shorts...although it doesn't happen much.

What if it's cold at night? --we need jackets & capri pants

What if those shoes aren't comfortable after walking all over EPCOT? --I'll just take a comfy pair of shoes too-just in case.

See what I mean? I can't help it!! SOMEBODY STOP ME!! Joe gets mad at me when he goes to bring the suitcases downstairs & throws his back out. He yells to me something about the 50 lb weight limit & makes me sort things out to make them lighter. Instead of pairing things down & taking some stuff out I just shuffle them to a lighter suitcase! It's a sickness I tell ya!

i'm a big overpacker ... especially if we have to bring snacks and stuff (for daytrips) ... always pack way too much.

i'm the same way too! and for the same reasons...and now throw the baby in the mix and the spit up, he gets a suitcase by himself...and me extra shirts in case he targets me.
