Every time I am preparing to go to my aunt’s house, I feel like a little kid all over again.
I end up with a practically overflowing suitcase, and at least one other bag, filled with something or other…
And why do I always pack so much stuff?
Because I want to bring everything awesome with me – I want to share all my best everythings with them all.
I love them and I love being with them, and I, therefore, love sharing all I have and can with them.
So, I want to bring my best, and to be able to share it with them all.
That’s why I practically want to pack up my whole room, plus my kitchen and pantry foods, and bring it all with me.
It’s like the little kid who first wants to wear all of his favorite clothes on one single day, with no concern for the fact that he is wearing two t-shirts, a jacket, a hat, shorts, shoes, and long socks… in the middle of summer…
And that really doesn’t work, when traveling by Vespa…
Fortunately, I had the forethought to have my mom bring my bag of clothes when she goes tomorrow to celebrate my grandmother’s birthday, so that I will have clothes once I arrive next week, a couple days ahead of my mom.
However, just about anything that doesn’t make it into her car tomorrow morning by 7am won’t be making the trip at all… fingers crossed that I have everything already in the suitcase! 😀
