Getting Ready to Travel
I printed out a copy of FlyLady's Packing Control Journal for getting ready to take a trip. I made extra copies of the personal packing list and the bathroom bag list. The kids will be staying at my sister's, while Wes and I are staying at my dad's, so we need two bathroom bags, and we'll each have our own suitcases (except for Wes and me). I've marked each person's page with what they need, and I'll give them to each one on Saturday (we leave Monday). I've also started my shopping list for this week, adding things we'll need for the trip such as an extra bottle of body wash, razors, deodorant . . . things that I might forget in the rush of making my regular grocery list on Wednesday. I have a master grocery list in Word, so it's easy to print out and mark as I go through the week. This is the calmest I've ever been before a trip, and we traveled for 2 1/2 years for our ministry! LOL I did better than I would have without FlyLady, but not as well as for this trip. We're all getting excited now - one week and counting!
