It only took me 5 days to get my bags packed and UNDER 50lbs. You don’t realize how much clothing you have until you have to pick what you’re going to take. And then you realize how much it weighs.
I debated for a while whether I should just wear a good majority of my clothes on the plane, to solve my packing issue. It wasn’t a very well thought out plan, but it would have cleared up a lot of frustration!
Now all I have left to pack is my computer stuff and books to read in the airports and plane. I also have a journal full of well wishes and wisdom from those who attended my farewell party. Can’t wait to read those!
Charlene and Mike even came up for awhile. It was great to see them, and see how excited they were for me. Mike was very adamant that I HAD to come back, and Charlene reminded me that I wasn’t allowed to get a boyfriend, or get married, and end up staying there.
We leave tomorrow on a road trip. Moosejaw is our first stop. Myself, grandma and grandpa, uncle Lyle and mom plan on playing tourist there for a day and then heading to a B&B outside of Cochrane. After that we’ll be on our way to Vernon to Uncle Darryl’s place and then to the resort for Summer’s wedding.
I realize this is a rather dull post, but I thought I’d better start the travel section now or I’ll never get around to it.. I’ve gotta finish up my packing tonight as we’re hitting the road at 7am. I’ll post pictures and updates as we trek across western canada.. and when I land on the other side of the globe!
