I cringe when I arrive back home from a trip and unpack things I haven’t worn or used. I like to pack comfortably but light, not carrying more than I need (and it leaves more room for cute sweaters to buy in Norway, Estonia or wherever!).
That’s why I’m celebrating today.
I looked in the closet this morning and it was a celebration: I realized I’ve now worn every single pair of shoes I packed at least once.
You may recall that I vacillated whether I should bring a pair of low-heeled sandals (I did) as well as my running shoes and exercise gear (I brought those, too).
And, thanks to a great “sea day” yesterday (read about it here soon, wink, wink), I can proudly state all shoes have now been worn and therefore I get an “A” for that packing category.
Packing update: I forgot to put my total luggage weight on the packing blog entry. Including my suitcase, total weight was 34.2 pounds when we left Los Angeles International Airport. I think I deserve another star.
