So. We are now three nights out from departure. I know things will get better, but right now they are kind of stinky. I am really missing my family and friends already (and I haven't left yet). Unfortunately, they are missing me, too, which makes me sad that they are sad. I am also worried about forgetting something essential, like paperwork or my laptop (I had a dream that I forgot my laptop).
I am also having luggage issues - last night's brilliant strategy failed. My luggage is filled to the gills, but one bag is 37 pounds and the other is 61 pounds. Somehow, I have to figure out how to move the small and dense objects to the small bag and the puffy objects to the bigger bag. I thought I had basically done this by putting the heavy shoes in one bag, but my plan did not succeed. Ugh. I knew I should have studied physics. Maybe I could try sweet-talking the airlines. "Why, you look so big and strong, I bet mah little bitty ol' luggage weighs nuthin' to you, sugah!"
On a happier note, I went to the dentist today and have no cavities - a miracle! Ohhhhhhhhhhh, yeah! My friend also bought a webcam for me, and we got it up and running! Woohoo! I also bought a pack of gum and some socks. Just thought you might like to know that.
I promise that happier posts are soon to come. A little wallowing, and I'll be good as new!
