Oh, the packing!

Who knew ONE person could have so much stuff? And to decide what to bring with me to the ship, and what to leave behind; my brain is going crazy!! I woke up this morning stressing at 5am, that I wasn't going to have enough room for everything I want to take, that I won't have everything I want with me, I will forget something and worse even, that I won't have enough comforts of "home" and will be sad. Yikes, this is hard!

I have a lot of clothes; day work clothes, night work clothes, formal clothes and clothes for time off and being a tourist. PJ's, a windbreaker, bathing suit, sweatshirt, jeans; not to mention sneakers, flip flops and dress shoes. That doesn't include a single toiletry (and we all know how I LOVE toiletries!!) and I still have my laptop, digital photo frame, portable dvd player, camera, video camera .. the list just keeps going. I am trying to keep those things to a minimum, but it is hard.

2 weeks from yesterday I will be out of my apartment and "moving" back to NY; 2 weeks from Monday I leave for FL; and 3 weeks from today I will have flown from FL to Recife, Brazil the day before to meet the ship !!!

Understatement of the year...LOL. Your closet would rival a WalMart aisle anyday. :-P
