    • 22 hours, 21 minutes until the flight to Paris!!!!!!!!

      Tuesday (Although all day I kept thinking it was Friday )

      Supply teaching today. A fav. school. I shared Surfer Son's story with a few teachers and the VP (who used to be Surfer Son's Principal) I read the 1st part of it to the grade 12's before the bell rang for lunch AND NO ONE MOVED TO LEAVE. I gave them a very quick verbal summary and then they left.

      I can't count the # of people who say the story should be shared/made into a book/movie...

      After school I went - can you guess?? - Yup, shopping.
      A blank Moleskine for my trip journal, a nice sweater and a dress, and a few little last minute things (bobby pins and an umbrella for Daughter)

      I stopped at the Apple Store. Surfer Son's iPod Touch was stolen while he was in the hospital. He'd bought Apple Care. He'd SPECIFICALLY asked the sales guy if it covered theft ('cause he'd had his iPhone stole in South Africa) The sales guy said yes, so he bought it. He went there the other day, and of course, theft isn't covered. Anyway, as I'm talking to a manager, explaining what happened, I started crying. (in the Apple store. Of all places. Kinda embarrassing, but maybe it'll help my case) He asked what I wanted, I said a replacement iPod. He said no promises...

      I came home and packed. I'm mostly packed. A few last minute things. My suitcase weighs 27 lbs and my carry-on weighs 12lbs. Limits are 50lbs and 26lbs.Pretty good, by my standards I know I pack too much in my carry-on, but I'm afraid my checked bag will get lost...

      Anyway, bedtime. Busy day tomorrow!!!

      The bus leaves the school at 2:30 and the plane leaves at 9:30 Wed night!!!!!!!!!!!

      If I don't hop back on here before I leave, I'll maybe check in if I have time and wifi. If not,see you guys March 16th!!

              • I've been gone for a bit, so I got to zip through your travel prep and get caught up just as you are leaving. Have a safe flight, and a wonderful time. Will be waiting to hear all about it when you get back. Do you suppose there are French gummies?

                    • My father worked for TWA, so I got to travel quite a bit as a child and teen, always with carry-on, though, because we flew stand-by. So when my sister and I went with a friend on a European tour after high school, we two were in good shape with our backpacks, but out friend was suffering at having to bring only what she could carry.

                      I remember reading 'Arthur Frommer's Europe on $20 a Day' (remember that?) before we went, and being amazed at one lady's strategy for saving space. She brought her oldest underwear on the trip, wore each pair two days(second day turned inside out) then tossed them. I thought that was a step too far for me, but I liked her other strategy, which I think would suit Winencandy very well: she brought only a few items of clothes, and had the fun of buying something new in each place she went, to fill out her wardrobe and have a practical souvenir.

                      • Um...Winencandy MIGHT need to buy a bigger carry-on bag...


                        Just sayin'

                          Where was this excellent bit of advice BEFORE I flew to Paris???


                          Just to be clear, I'm talking about buying new outfits, NOT re-wearing my underwear!!!
