Packing Light

Tomorrow I leave for Florida and my next opera adventure: Taking my 81 year old mom to see Florida Grand Opera's Marriage of Figaro. And don't forget that Elizabeth Caballero is singing the role of The Countess! We'll have a quick trip back to say hello afterward.

So yesterday I got this cute little carry-on suitcase and I've managed to pack both Alex's and my clothes for the trip, plus of course a few extra pairs of earrings to hand out here and there like candy. Ooh that reminds me, I should pack the jewelry I plan to wear myself. We'll have access to laundry so I didn't go nuts packing. Usually I like to have a choice about what to wear, but since I'm the one who'll be lugging the suitcase I have suddenly learned to pack light.

I'm sure there's something musical to say but I just awoke from a wonderfully long nap (meaning, I'll be up until 2am) and my brain is still covered with napfuzz.

I like the "nap fuzz" comment - I'll be stealing that to use myself.

I know what you mean about the packing. When I go see my son in June I'm only packing a few things - I can use his washer/dryer to keep ahead of dirty stuff and that way I don't have to pack so much.

Great minds think alike.
