What if?

Do you ever see those people traveling completely unencumbered, one small purse and a book perhaps? That wouldn't be me, I adhere to the 'What if?' theory instead.

What if I pack a knitting project but I didn't read all the directions and I don't have the right number of stitch markers and? I pack another project, just in case

What if they take my knitting needles away in flight, it happened only once in Europe, but still? I pack some beading projects, just in case

What if there is a crying baby on board? I pack my ipod, just in case

What if my 3g network doesn't work? I pack my laptop, just in case

What if my checked luggage doesn't arrive? I pack my toiletries, just in case

What if they don't feed me and I have not time between planes? I pack some food, just in case

So if you see me in Dallas or PA, struggling under the weight of my luggage, you'll know I'm prepared, just in case!

I am so like you on that front! I always end up with enough bead projects to last me a month - what if I get tired of this one or change my mind about it? Then I can work on one of the 19 others I brought with me...

Hope you have a safe trip!

Oh yes, I get every word of that. I pack Boese headphone because they may run out of them in first class. Susan helps me plan multiple knitting projects because, who knows.

Happy safe travels.
Hugs,

On every trip I find myself staring jealously at those people with a paperback, cup of coffee and a small bag. It's a love/hate thing. I want to be as free as they are but at the same time I feel superior because I am prepared for "What if."

Before leaving, I book an appointment with my chiropractor to fix my neck and shoulder when I get back. Now that is prepared!

Have a fantastic show, sign a million books and travel happily!

LOL! Thank you for the laugh today. I too spend more time packing my project bag than what I actually am going to wear. My challenge for when I attend Tahoe Retreat is to only bring ONE BAG! That means I've go to seriously limit what projects I bring to work on. Yikes!
