Let the packing begin! While it seems like I just finished packing and unpacking, it is nevertheless time to pack once again. It is always difficult to figure out what to take and what to leave behind for the next time. Will I wear that dress? Can I possibly fit all these shoes? And don’t even get me started about books. It is torture. With the baggage fees that most airlines are charging nowadays, and the expensive extra baggage fees and overweight baggage fees, I am usually very careful with packing and weighing my suitcases. Over the past two years I have nearly perfected the fine art of packing a suitcase as close to the maximum weight limit as possible, often to the exclamation of the check in folks at the airport as it weighs in at 49.8 or exactly 50 pounds.
This evening, for a bit of post-packing comic relief, my mom and I watched this episode of Mr. Bean. I realized I just had to share it here since it makes me laugh every time I see it! Earlier today I felt just like Mr. Bean, with his small suitcase and bed piled high with things to pack. But don’t worry, I started with the big suitcases!
