Jigsaw Falling Into Place

Seems I’ve got a knack for putting my luggage away after a trip without first removing everything from it. The other day I grabbed one suitcase and found in it a movie wallet - containing many DVDs - that had been missing since our trip up to Duluth. Last Fall. Yesterday I pulled out the bigger suitcase, the one with wheels on the bottom, and discovered a few decks of cards, other games, socks and a tote bag that had been stowed away since our trip to Iceland two years ago. I noticed the little tote bag was lumpy. Unzipping a pocket I found a pair of mittens, stashed in there since my first trip to Iceland. Over seven years ago. Yep. I am a packrat. And I’ve probably overpacked for this trip. Not that I’m feeling very prepared. We’ve been so busy that I never got around to overplanning our vacation like I usually do. Maybe that’s for the best.

I have some vague notions about the Alberta neighborhood, where we’re staying, and I know there are some lurvly parks about. And we’ll be seeing my friend Cathy Camper and the Afrojet family. I’ll be winging it the rest of the time.

Sadly I missed Cupcake Saturday today (two weeks in a row!) and a “stuff swap” at my friends’ house, but I’ll be back in time for their joint birthday party. Off to the airport soon. And yes, the laptop is coming with us.

I broke down and bought some Crocs

Bonus: Street Art At Its Best #3: Plastic Bag Animals.
Plus: I made it out to the ‘Ride, Rueben, Ride!‘ benefit show that my friends put on. But I missed the “secret” headliner, P.O.S., because I had to get back for the sitter and had a parent/teacher conference first thing the next morning. Oh wells.
And: I’m so wary of the potential suck factor in the upcoming X-Files 2 that I haven’t watched the trailer yet. But I could. And probably will. Maybe later.
