Packing Thoughts and Other What Nots

We're packing.


It's a little old now.

This time we are flying, so we had to actually think about the weight of bags.

While I was packing, I had some pretty random thoughts that I thought I would share with you.

*First of all, I was watching The Holiday on my computer as I packed, and for some reason, I have become engrossed with Kate Winslet. This coming just hours after I had watched her in Sense and Sensibility (my favorite version of a Jane Austen book, with the new Pride and Prejudice in a close second.)

*Then, I had a dawning realization.


They are all gone.


I had unpacked EVERY suitcase in an effort to rearrange the weight, and nay, I found not one pair of socks.

Good thing Vancouver is in the 40's and 50's next week. {I'm just dripping with sarcasm now}

*We've realized that the smartest way of packing (for weight purposes,) is to start with your smallest bag, putting in your heaviest items.

It's a real life saver.

*The thought of not having a cell phone freaks me out a little. Which is just pathetic. I can still remember when no one had cell phones, and we all existed just fine. Except those with medical emergencies, car jackings, or any criminal activity.

I'm SO going to be the one to have a heart attack, while being car jacked at gun point the minute I get off of the plane ALL because I won't have my working cell phone.

{sorry for the drama, it's how my mind works these days}

*Happy Birthday to my big Sister! She's had quite the week, with her wedding last Saturday and her birthday today!

*I straightened my hair for the first time in 6 years yesterday. It was awesome. No, really. It looked great. It didn't frizz. And it was pretty. I'm going to try it again for our 5 am airport visit tomorrow, that way I won't have to shower and do my hair in the morning!

*We get our internet connected at noon (Pacific time) on Thursday, so be looking for some real live Canadian updates after that! Until then, I've scheduled a post or two to keep you guessing :)
