Packing Hell


I’m trying to pack for an eight day trip to Ireland with a two day stay in Orlando prior to the flight.  So, ten outfits should do the trick, right? Then would someone tell me why I’ve packed a carry on bag to full capacity along with a suitcase the size of Delaware, and I’m still wondering if I’m taking enough along.

Studly Doright’s side of the large suitcase contains exactly one pair of shorts or pants for each day and a complementary shirt, along with an equal number of underpants and pairs of socks. He’s not even taking a carry on bag; although, he will have his golf bag in tow. 

I’m stressing out, but I found this message tucked in with the packing humor in Pinterest. 

Thank goodness none of the above takes up space in a suitcase. I’m all out.

Peace, people.

  1. Ocht you are looking at the woman who routinely packs the kitchen sink for a weekend away. Unless it is a hill walking weekend in which case I can travel light. My Mr has never understood why I need to take 8 pairs of shoes for three days, several bags, scarves. you name it. Mostly in his case too. Once trying to lift my case off a baggage carousel, after I had said leave it, I will get that, (Cos the Greek bus driver in Rhodes nearly broke his back lifting it ) the handle came clean off, the weight was such. A pity it hadn’t come off before this other guy tried to lift it and did his back in too. The thing is dear, the Irish weather will be like ours. You have to come prepared.

  2. If I have time to pack, unhurried, I pack everything I need in a carry-on bag, whether I’m going for three days or three months. If I wait until the last minute, I stuff a huge suitcase and wear exactly 3 things because I can’t be bothered to unpack on vacation or even dig to the bottom.

  3. You and Studly have fun and be safe. And Painted Toes…politics will be here when you get back. Enjoy, and situational awareness always.
