Does anyone out there like unpacking suitcases?
I would say it’s not my favorite thing. I do like to get it done though. A week of living out of a suitcase while we’re away from home is enough. My suitcases always start out with good intentions. Everything in its own section and categorized. But, about one day in and everything decides to have a grand reunion and become one royal, rumpled mess, so that you have to sort and paw and dig to come up with what you want. And if you’re lucky, you will actually find two socks that go together!
I used to like packing for a trip and didn’t mind the unpacking too much. Anymore, I like going and being there, but I could do without the whole packing and unpacking thing. My kids can even do most of their own compared to when they were toddlers, but somehow packing is just a bigger obstacle than it used to be for me. I am getting older…
So, my suitcases are unpacked, although a couple of them are still waiting to find their way upstairs to wait patiently until they are needed again.
We spent Christmas in Ohio at my parents. Totally, enjoyed being there! We were very blessed with safety over the many miles going and coming! We laughed, we ate, we sang, we took pictures, we opened gifts, we had pageants, we shopped, we prayed, we cooked, we saw friends, we enjoyed!
Home again and back to school and all the everyday things of life. One thing I like about being gone is that it always feels good to come home again! It’s nice to have a break and then it feels good to get back at the “stuff” we do!
Do you travel for the holidays?
And even more importantly, do you have any good suitcase/packing/unpacking tips?!!
