Oh for heavens sake. My suitcase is too big. Ok ya gotta know I'm a travel light kind of person. I mean, what do ya really need in Negril? Swimsuit, couple T shirts, undies, sandals. Makeup? Forgetabout it. My skin feels like velvet in the Negril climate. Nice clothes? Ya kidding me? Where exactly would I wear them, heck, I don't wear nice things at home, LOL... I'm your basic Wally World & Old Navy kind of gal. Although I will splurge a bit on jeans... anyhow dang, my fingers outran my brain (again). So I'm a light packer, usually a backpack or very small duffle carryon. Well yeah the carry on is small, but so am I, so what feels like a light bag at the start of the trip starts to feel like an ANVIL is in it after schlepping it through the airport from one end to the other.
So this time I say, I'm gonna take a real suitcase with wheels. I don't know the difference, I "thought" it was 21 inches. So I get it all packed. Then I measure it. Oh my gosh. It's 24 or 25 inches. Good Grief. I gotta have a bag with wheels this trip, I just can't carry bags no more... so I get lucky and find one on Overstock and end up paying about 30.00 for it YaH!
Now my trip is still 16 days away, but of course, I always start packing early cause I always pack too much at first. Then I change it. And pack, repack, pack, unpack, WHEW.... why do I do this EVERY time LOL~ when I know darn good and well that ALL I NEED is ... yup ... a couple T shirts, shorts, undies and sandals
