I think I've mentioned...

...how I hate packing!

For some reason it always turns my brain to mush. I have to put so much thought into what should go together so that breakables don't break and nothing is overweight and I can find things later...

And now the weight limits imposed by the airlines are really pretty tight. Which is extremely frustrating, because I have lots of stuff I'd like to take with me, and some nice big suitcases that can hold lots of that stuff...but if I fill them, they are overweight and I have to pay major fees :(

UPDATE: Scratch the comments on major fees. Turns out for my flight to Mexico, I'm not allowed to take anything over 50 pounds, period. It is so frustrating to have the space for the things I need to pack, but be limited by weight. Apparently shipping is more important to airlines than passengers luggage.

Like I said, it all turns my brain to mush, so this post is unfortunatly nothing inspired. But please pray for my man, as his boss informed him yesterday that he needs to work double today and tomorrow to make up for his time coming here. Which, when combined with his very early departure time Thursday and the fact that he has never flown, means there is quite the potential for him to be exhausted when he arrives. So pray for productivity, rest, strength, and easy travel.

Coming soon....how such a long engagement was probably God's way of preparing me...

I'm sure you have probably thought of this, but could some of your immediate family members commit to each bring a suit case with them as part of their luggage when they come for the wedding, that would include items you could do without for a couple weeks?

yeppers - I currently have 4 suitcases packed for them, and will have to do at least one more.

the number is growing exponentially since I can't fill any of the bags to capacity.

it'll probably mostly all make it down one way or another - it just takes more prioritizing and reorganizing. which is tiring...
