Over the last couple of days, I have gotten antsy to start packing. So, this morning, I made the big step.
I cleared off a space in the living room, in front of the fire place – had to move the furniture around a bit. Yea, the living room. What we like to do is lay out the stuff we are planning to take, especially the clothing, and every time we walk by, we look at it and ask ourselves “Do we really need to take that?”. By the time we actually leave, everything in the bag is meant to be there. Thus the living room.
Next I dug out my black suitcase and my purse. I also threw in the daypack, but we will decide whether that goes. Mur doesn’t have a suitcase yet – we ordered an MEI Voyager and are hoping it arrives before we go. If not, we have his old suitcase.
Then I got our wetsuits out of the closet and laid them out. Then our fins and I grabbed two old smallish towels. Here is what it looks like so far.
