suitcaseAs I write, we are leaving for a trip this weekend overseas. The weather could be raining and cold or hot and muggy. I planned to start packing today.

    Dear Laura,
    Count me in. HATE packing. Always go with an overstuffed suitcase and don’t wear some of the items and regret having brought so much bc I could have bought some Oaxaca T-shirts intead of some of the ones I brought that you can almost see through from age. It’s Saturday and I decided to stay close to home bc my wisdom tooth was extracted on Thursday morning and it hurts and the meds make me a little woozy, nicely woozy actually. I figured this would be a good day to start to impemente the packing list I made two weeks ago. I think you left that out. Making a list weeks in advance helps alleviate a bit of hte anxiety. Another thing you didn’t mention in your VERY good list of behavioral questions (I had a behavioral therapist for about six months in NYC) was that when you travel, fellow travellers cut you slack, and so should the locals; and if they don’t, are they really worth worring about anyway. BTW, I’m going to the Dordogne in SW France this Tuesday so if I start packing my one carry on suitcase and one carry on back pack today, I may make it in time for the flight!
