19: Tetris

The big game of Tetris is underway! What should I bring? What should I wear? I really do love packing and utilizing every available inch.

It’s always the shoes that cause the biggest problems! I’ll probably wear my hiking shoes, since they’re the bulkiest, but I have no option but to pack Addie’s. I couldn’t wear them even if I wanted to without looking like Bozo! haha. And “nice” clothes — for the one night out of seven that we’ll be going to a fancy restaurant.

For a minute, I thought I might get by with one large suitcase… but I don’t think so. Then Brian wondered if I had room for a jug of laundry detergent, because they’re having supply chain issues. Hm. Well. I don’t think I’ll bring a jug (so heavy) but maybe I can Tetris in some pods somewhere.

I took time out to watch “the youngsters” win a football game today! The Packers are a very young team, especially on offense. We’ve been spoiled for the past 30-some years, having some of the best QBs & players in the game, numerous winning seasons, playoffs & Super Bowl appearances. We don’t have the A-list announcers anymore, either, since their departure (which isn’t a terrible thing). It was a great game today, and it’s so great to see our “youngsters” improving. They next play on Thanksgiving Day! We’ll be at Machu Picchu… at the very least, I’ll be wearing my lucky Green Bay Packers earrings.

  1. Have you tried laundry soap sheets. They are about the size of a dryer sheet and easier to pack. Check Amazon. They have them at my local grocery store.

  2. I’m always amazed at how well you pack! I bet the power of the lucky earrings will work even at a great distance.

  3. You are an excellent Tetris player — and I’m sure you’ll figure all of this out (including the laundry detergent element!). I’m so excited about your adventure! XO

  4. I’m another fan of laundry detergent sheets. They work great. Amazon has them and also my local store carries them. I’m so excited for your trip!!!

  5. I just saw your post from the Miami airport … and I can’t help but think THIS post is one of my favorite parts of a trip … which is crazy because do I really love packing? maybe … and maybe not quite as much as you do! hope you fit it all in!!
