Packing List

Things to pack on a girls only road trip:

1. Skin care regime and make-up because I will actually have time to use them.

2. Junk food because I don't have to set a healthy example for once.

3. Shoes with heels because I won't need to chase anyone around.
The exact amount of clothes as the number of days I will be gone, because there won't be any vomit, snot, or pee.
5. Pictures of people to "catch up" on.
6. Camera to commemorate every little thing because who knows when the opportunity will arise again.

7. Fully charged cell phone, to answer those calls from the husband asking where the diapers and forks are.

8. A purse devoid of diapers, band-aids, lollipops, napkins, tiny toys, and hand sanitizer.

9. A laptop, because I can do without my kids but I can't do without the internet.

10. A picture of the family because no matter how much fun I'm having, I will miss them terribly.

Your post came at the most opportune moment. I'm just about to pack for my trip to my hometown for the Chinese New Year. About the slogan-writing, maybe I should post some tips,eh? Actually,it's easy to win in Malaysian 'cos the standard of English is low. I don't think I'd even make it on the consolation prize list if the competitions were held in the U.S!!

Great list. I hope you are going somewher fun.

sidenote~~I tried keeping up with all the blogs I follow for about a week before I new I wouldn't be able to keep that pace daily. I am still trying to keep up I just don't do it every day now. It's hard because so many of these blogs are so fun to read and commenting is kind of addictive.

I did not know that you had any skin care. dont forget the romance book. Be safe on your trip. Drive carefully.

You lucky. I am reading this post wearing a neon orange t-shirt, blue leggings, and house slippers, while pumping milk for my baby. Oh, your trip sounds so dreamy right now! LOL
