Hello To My 2 New Follower's, Yea!

Just wanted to say hi & welcome to my forthcoming nightmare!  Just kidding! :) Hello to Violet & Carolyn.  I am already following Violet's blog, but I can't seem to find the blog address for Carolyn's!  Carolyn, if you want to give me your blog address, I would love to view your as well.  Everyone have a great day!

Today I am doing a ton of laundry getting ready for our vacation to Cape Cod & New Hampshire!  This trip I want to do something that I have never done before, pre pack!! lol.  We don't leave until the 8th of October, but my intentions are to have us packed before the end of the week, wish me luck!

Two of the things that I must try to pack along with our clothes are; a huge Afghan (it would fit the top of at least a double bed if not a queen!) & an Oil Painting that I painted for my best friend in New Hampshire!  I plan on putting the Afghan in one of those bags that you vacuum all the air out of, to place in one of the large suitcases, & the Painting, I plan on placing cardboard around it, then wrapping bubble wrap around it as well & placing it in the 2nd large suitcase.  If I can do this & keep both pieces under 50 lbs, I will be thrilled!

Well, I better go, the laundry is ready to be moved.  Wish me luck!  Till next time.
Aloha :)

Debi - good luck with the packing! A few years ago I bought a large framed picture on a trip and I had it wrapped up and ready to put in a suitcase, but someone mentioned that you can carry those types of things on and give them to the flight attendant - they have a special place for breakable carry ons. I did that and it worked perfect! Maybe you could call your airline and see if they do something like that.

I wish I could, but we will be flying from Sacramento to Cape Cod, with 2 layover's!! Unfortunately, the last leg of the trip is on a puddle jumper & I am lucky that they will be able to accommodate my Rollator (Walker w/4 wheels) & my Bipap Machine. I suppose it couldn't hurt to call them & ask about the painting though. Thanks for the information! :)
