In preparation of a fun road trip we're taking this weekend to visit family, I had to make sure I brought along a little fun pack. Does anyone else do this? I guess it's still ingrained in me from my childhood road trips where we got to bring one backpack full of toys and things to do during the ride. I'd pack my backpack to the brim, squeezing everything I could in. Inevitably I would only use one item from the pack, but at least I knew I had options.
Such was the case today when I filled a tote with all the craft supplies I could fit. Now, as we're almost to our destination, I have yet to actually complete anything. At least I had options, though.
Speaking of packing, I'm embarrassed of how much I bring on trips. Thank goodness we're driving, so I could load up the car. Each trip I tell myself that I'm going to be really good and only pack the bare essentials. I think about exactly what I'll wear each day, pack just that, but then come back hours later and throw in everything in my closet just in case. Then I fill another bag full of stuff for good measure. My worst fear is that I get to my destination only to realize I've forgotten my underpants. Oh, the horror! Is anyone else an over packer?
