All day today was spent getting prepped to leave on Monday. Well some of it may have been being lazy and binge watching some weird show my wife is into. But in between that, it is getting myself mentally prepared for chaos. I think we may have set a record today for how much laundry we did. Next step will be getting the house cleaned so we can come back to a clean house. That is absolutely necessary. Then it is getting packed. My nemesis. Another thing in life that seems so simple, yet I am so bad at it.
The biggest problem is the weather keeps changing in Florida, so there is no one right way to pack. I definitely am hoping to spend most of my days in shorts, t-shirts, and bathing suits. The weather is not going to make it that easy. It is supposed to be nice during the day, but get cool at night. A couple days have unfortunately dropped into the mid 60s, so now we need to pack a little of everything. This is where I struggle. I am a compulsive over packer, even when we just go away for the weekend. My goal is to bring as few bags as possible on this trip, especially because I have my golf clubs and we have booster seats we need to bring as well. I just have to figure out how to manage just bringing a little of everything without bringing too much. I keep telling myself there is a washer and dryer there. Not sure that will matter, but I am going to do my best to keep the packing as light as possible.
Tomorrow we are going to make this happen. I am not going to overpack. I am going to take only what I need. Yeah well that is not going to happen, but I don’t care. I am getting out of here!
