I am on the final stretch of getting ready for my trip. My sibling, who is going to come up and keep an eye on Mom while I’m gone, let me know that I can have a carryon and a purse so I don’t have to worry too much about that. I am getting really weird about this.
I have made sure that I have enough room in my favorite Timbuk2 bag to hold my yarn that I am trading Buffalo Wool Co. for a discount on a skein of their yarn, as well as all of the bags I am hoping to take since many of the vendors do not provide bags, and the first aid kit I picked up for this trip. I have a bunch of little wallets to squirrel away my money so that I do not spend it all at once and so that I can keep track of how I am doing with the spending. My personal grooming equipment is in a plastic box that I plan on putting in my suitcase. There are two pairs of sneakers that I picked up with good arch support so that my plantar fasciitis doesn’t flare up during the trip. It is quite painful when the muscle in the arch of your foot is pulled so tight you cannot sleep.
I plan on packing my pill container as well as a list of the medications I take so that the TSA doesn’t have any reason to be concerned. I know, I’m a bit obsessed. I messaged with my second cousins to see if they have any advice, and now I can only hope that things are going to go well. I’ve got a great class to teach tomorrow and then I’ve got three more days of work to get through before I will be winging my way off to Maryland.
More to report from the road, and maybe something about my class.
