Rob came into the bedroom and said "What are you doing?" As he looked at the all the stuff covering the bed.
I stared at him. Mildly offended and a then embarrassment hit, as I thought how silly this must look.
"Sara, we don't leave for another 15-16 days."
"18." I corrected.
"Okay, 18. You're going to pack now?"
He shook his head and laughed at me. Then he picked up the bag.
"What's this?" He asked.
"It's one of those space saver bags for traveling!" I announced proudly.
Again he looked amused.
I grabbed the other two empty ones and held them up. "Look, I've got two more! You can pack too!"
"I need my clothes! I can't believe you are packing. You know you're going to be packing and unpacking until we go, because you'll forget what you've packed or have to double check."
I stood there thinking about this. He was RIGHT. He knows me so well. Drat. I unpacked everything, taking meticulous notes on what outfits, and accessories I'll need for each day...
I'm just ready to go.
