    4 Days, 0 Hours, 38 Minutes till the flight to Paris!!!

    Saturday

    Typical Saturday.
    I didn't get half of what I wanted to get done.
    I felt blah today.
    There was an open bottle of Gamay. No sticker.

    ~~~

    I've packed most of my "non clothing" things.

    I looked at the TON of hair products and toys I have and tried to decide which ones I could leave home. I have several small containers that I'm going to use so I don't take 10 lbs of hair product with me

    I think I'm limiting myself to 3 pairs of pants. (For me this is packing LIGHT!) Yoga pants for the long flights and 2 pairs of jeans (No, I don't know WHICH jeans) I'm debating taking a skirt or dress...

    I want to take my Merrell Delight Glove Wool (I wear these almost every day) Probably I'll wear my Merrell Pace Gloves (only mine are red) on the plane and alternate between them. I still don't know if i need/want another pair...maybe a pair of boots???

    I'm not sure how many shirts I'll pack. I'm prepared to wear a shirt more than once. So, 5 maybe? Plus a couple of sweater/fleece layers for under my windbreaker. I've got 6 pairs of socks packed, but I've packed 10 pairs of underwear! (I'll wear the socks more than once, but NOT underwear!)

    I've packed tea, Lara bars, dark chocolate bars, (a bag of real fruit gummies) and macadamia nuts.

    I'm still debating taking my Olympus DSLR. It's big. But I love the photos I get from it. I'll also take my iPhone and when I was in Vegas ALL my photos were taken with my iPhone (except the Grand canyon) I've probably spent the most time on this decision.

    Right now, I can fit my checked things into a carry on sized bag, but I won't have any room if/when I buy things...I could easily fit it into the next sized up bag, (the carry on snugly fits into the next size bag) with room to spare...

    Right now (unless I change my mind again) this is my carry on bag. Tablet, headphones, insulated Kleen Kanteen, travel blanket and pillow, change of clothes, 311 bag, book, camera, etc...

    I like the carry on bag. About the same size as the Lug one I use and worked for 9 days in Paris as a carry on. If you're planning on buying much stuff, the larger bag with your carry on stuffed inside is a great plan. The shoes look good too, most important thing is to be comfortable, as no doubt there will be lots of walking. I didn't take any jeans on that trip, I used travel weight Ex Officio and Columbia ones, which are lighter, dry fast, and the wrinkles shake out quickly. A skirt would be a nice addition for a change. Can't comment on the camera, as that's not my area of expertise.

    Sounds like you're on the right track, and not leaving anything to the last minute, though I expect the night before/day of the flight will be a flurry of packing/unpacking/making decisions. I've learned that it's better to pack lighter, and then you can always buy something if you really need it (or really want it ).

    I should think so! 50 lbs of checked luggage is a hell of a lot. I'd suggest pairing down your toiletries as much as possible in little sized containers. When I started doing that, I was really surprised that it could be done so easily. Makes for a much lighter bag to not bring full sized bottles/tubes/etc.

    I am so excited for you! You will have the time of your life. And I'm jealous of your Merrills, those are great.

    3 Days, 2 Hours, 8 minutes until the flight to Paris!!!!

    Sunday

    Laundry - it's coming out of the woodwork!

    This afternoon I helped my sister clean out the last of my parents stuff from the booth.
    My parents decided that they would "retire" from working at the booth (they'd been their for 19 years!)

    Do you know what this means!!!!!

    NO MORE CONSTANT GUMMY WORM TEMPTATIONS!!!

    Eek! No more gummy worms, caramel, caramel cup ice cream, fresh cut fries...

    ~~~

    This IS a good thing.

    I also tackled the Peru insurance papers. I'm not done, but guess what? There was no "block". I wasn't afraid to tackle it


    The next 2 days are already scheduled FULL!
    (Tomorrow I'm "booked" from 9 am till 9 pm!)
    I hope nothing extra shows up!
    I've still gotta finish packing!!!

    Foods
    MCT oil shot
    Chai
    small cheese and nut plate
    Chai
    the last of the Caveman Crunch
    Wine
    Roast venison, carrots, cauliflower, 2 cream cheese clouds

    ~~~

    Two mornings in a row, I've felt sick. Today I finally made the connection: I have had my MCT oil shot 1st thing in the am. Evidently This does NOT agree with me. Tomorrow I will try it later in the day. Funny, it didn't happen with walnut oil...

    ~~~

    Doing my Paris research, I found this store. I WANT!

    I've decanted my toiletries into smaller containers for years. Yes it helps. I've also "practiced" for the last week or so, measuring and seeing exactly HOW much conditioner/gel/etc I use per week.

    I pre-weighed my bag the other day (no clothes) just all the "stuff" and it was about 15 lbs, so I will be well under weight!

    Great job getting insurance papers started. The store looks amazing. Do you just slug back a shot of walnut oil?

    I'm starting to get really excited!!

    I love my merrells. I want to get something like these for summer (last year they had a model without the strap...)

    Oh, I just looked at the website, and LOOK at these men's Merrells!

    I would be all over those if they were women's. But the price!
