The other day we received a box of vacuum storage bags. So today I spent time trying to see if all the clothes I plan to take will fit.
A lot of times I don’t wear very warm clothes because I still get hot flashes. Many times I’m wearing short sleeves or sleeveless dresses with a cardigan so I can strip down at the first sign of inner flush.
As I packed today, cramming sweaters and warm pajamas in the vacuum bags, I couldn’t help but wonder if I would even wear everything I’m taking along. I winnowed out so many things but I continued to remove dresses and shirts from my pile.
On television, those vacuum bags look so smooth. Mine looked like vacuum-packed roasts.
The bags are super heavy now, of course because there’s no air in them.
I have another suitcase that I plan to pack for our days in Paris and I may take an extra bag to Florida. Before we leave there, I’ll have to fit all those summer clothes into my bags so I can get them to France.
It’s all an adventure.
