I am getting a little anxious now. I only have two full days to complete packing and handle all of my business in the states before going on my journey. I leave for the Dominican Republic with my best friend for 6 days. When I return, I will only have exactly one day to be back before leaving for my exciting journey!! Ugh!! I feel a turtle in my throat!! How do I pack my life in 1 bag and still be the fashionista that I am??? I am sure that men do NOT have the same level of difficulty as we do.
After all, how many different pairs of black shoes must I leave behind? So many choices and sooooo little space. Do I leave the black flip flops, the running shoes, the stiletto heels (just in case of that hot night on the town) or how many wedges do I bring? Come on, who are we kidding now? You know I am trying to be practical here?? Okay, my little stilettos. At home you shall rest.
I am pretty amazed that I have gotten it down to two bags!! One bag weighs 57 pounds. (Already over the 50 pound limit.) The other smaller bag is at 30 pounds. Not bad for a girl who rarely wears most things twice. To be honest, the problem is the weight of my anti-malarial ammunition. I have everything from my mite sprays, anti-malarial drugs, mosquito net, travel sheets, and my cans of off. I know it sounds extreme but I have issues with those darn mosquitos. Better safe than sorry.
