Month: August 2013

Packed and Pampered

My last day in the United States was a good one. After I finished packing (two big suitcases, a carry-on suitcase and a backpack), I had some fun. I got my nails done and a went in for a much needed haircut.

I also went out to lunch. This is the Lobster Cobb salad from Smack Shack in Minneapolis. Anything with lobster is a favorite of mine, and this had avocado, another favorite.

To really celebrate my last evening, I went with my family to see a Minnesota Gophers game. We watched from a suite and it was a beautiful night, so I enjoyed the time.

I’m heading to the airport with my mountain of luggage! After removing 15 lb. of clothes, I’m all set.

Packing Begins

I started packing. I leave for Madrid Friday, August 30, so I know it’s time. To give a little background, I can bring only what fits in two 50 pound suitcases. I’m packing for four months in two suitcases. Just the thought of it makes me worried.

Technically I started yesterday. However, this is as far as I got (laying two scarves on the guest bedroom bed).

Today I added a few more things, still to the guest bedroom. Next step: suitcases.
