I am going on a trip for a few days tomorrow and I still haven't packed. I'm a rotten packer and I don't like to pack, so I am procrastinating by writing a blog post. I'm actually not even writing a post, I'm sort of re-writing a post I did a couple of years ago when I was putting off packing to go somewhere.
Packing is a talent that I seemed to have missed out on. I love to travel, but the packing part is not fun for me. Most mornings I have a hard time deciding what I want to wear that day....how do I decide what I want to wear for the next week? When you add shoes, maybe some jewelry and whatever else needs to go into the suitcase, I'm a mess.
What almost always happens is that I pack way too much. I start out with a pretty good plan, but somewhere in the execution the plan goes awry. I become a ditherer. I can't decide between two things, so I take them both. I like to have choices.
I know that no one will care or even notice which pair of black shoes I take, but I still spend way too much time trying to decide and then end up taking them both, and probably another pair just in case.
I'd better quit lollygagging and at least go think about maybe starting to pack. Then I should probably work out a little so I can lift my suitcase.
Well, maybe I'll just read a few blogs first.
