Sitting at the airport waiting to board the plane to Vegas. I’m calm now. While we were on line to for security clearance I was so nervous. Not because I am carrying any contraband or anything but just because. Yesterday was in such a good mood and ran the few errands left. Actually all that was left for me to do is pack. So I began laying clothes out and discovered the 20+ year old suitcase I was planning on using looked like utter crap. So off to TJ Maxx I went and bought the last suitcase they had there. It was meant to be. The store was all loaded with back to school backpacks and no luggage section like they usually have. I didn’t have it in me to go to Macy’s for a larger selection, the TJ Maxx one was good enough.
So I packed. I tend to overpack but seriously it’s Las Vegas! I need clothes for daytime, clothes for the evening when we go out, shoes for the daytime and shoes for evening, not to mention bathing suits thank goodness I only have 2. Then there’s personal items, hair care product, etc…. I wish I could be one of those people who could pack “light” but I’m not wired that way.
We have to wear masks in the airport and on the plan. I don’t mind so much. Tommy and I managed to get seats together at the gate waiting area. I brought my Amazon reading tablet. It’s my purchase to encourage myself to begin reading for leisure again. I bought it about 2 weeks ago and have yet to begin the book I downloaded. I’m thinking the plane ride should be a good time to begin. It’s odd, I’m still in a bit of disbelief that I’m finished with my bachelors degree. I keep contemplating what I want to do next. Go for my Masters? I don’t know.
On the plane!!
