Ready or not

I leave for Cuba in 5 days.

The Guy's sister (who is also travelling down) has it broken down into minutes, but I am not so motivated. And I can't do simple math. Seriously. There is a reason I became a social worker. Listening is easier than thinking.

But I digress.

I am packed. Actually, I am over-packed. And, I took out 3 dresses (and put in one) and took out a pair of pants and a shirt (and put in one) and I somehow ended up with less room in my bag. I still have to pack shoes. In fact, I bought two of the cutest pairs of shoes ever today. Total? $19. I am a star.

My point is. I think I have to completely unpack and then repack and then still pare down what I am bringing. And figure out what I am forgetting. Which is likely a lot.

My brain is already on vacation. It is currently sipping non-alcoholic girly drinks on a beach. And somehow I have to get through the next 5 days without it.


  1. Ohh I love vacations you are so lucky!!!! I would pack two suitcases. One for shoes(pack like three pairs) and one for clothes. I say this because you can check in two bags at the airport and have one carry on. Well by reading your post, it seems to me that you will need an extra suitcase after your vacation for things you picked up along the way.

    That way you can pack all your goodies from your trip in your suitcase with the three shoes.

    Have a girly drink on the beach for me!!!

  2. Woohoo! Very awesome. I suck at packing. I wait until the last minute and then want to take everything I own (because I can't say now what I'll want to wear later!) and then I get completely overwhelmed and insist traveling isn't worth the stress of packing.

    But of course it always is.

  3. One pair of flats, one pair of flip flops, one pair of sexy shoes and then pack like 10 more pairs and you should be good.
