Ready or Not, Here I Go

One week from today I will be boarding a plane for my trip to Belarus (see previous post here:

I’m excited, nervous, ready….well, not totally ready, yet.  I’m working on that.  PACKING!  I’ve been thinking about what and how to pack ever since I made the commitment to go back in November.  I’ve been actually working on packing since the kids and grandkids left on Jan. 5th from all the Christmas celebrations (you know…things like buying travel size supplies, buying a few new clothes, gathering needed items, planning what to wear, organizing everything, and the list goes on).

We have our final meeting this Sunday after church.  We will get any unanswered questions answered and finalize travel plans.  We can weigh our suitcases at the meeting because our leader will bring his luggage scale.  Yea!!  OH, WAIT!  YIKES!!!  That means I have to be packed by then!  I think I can, I think I can…be packed by Sunday.  That way I can relax next week until we depart.  That sounds pretty good to me.

So….I better get off of here and get busy packing!

    The tiny travel kit I found in the men’s section of travel sized items and placed in my survival kit is perfect. When I took out the cardboard and shaving cream, I could add almost everything else I needed in that little kit. Of course, I was into survival and not looking good…no make-up, but who needs it, right?
    We’ll be praying!

      Trying to pack ONE quart ziplock with ALL my 3 oz. liquids has been a bit “trying” on my patience. I wanted to eliminate my liquid makeup, so I’ve spent the last month trying different “compact” makeups (talk about EXPENSIVE!). I think I’ve found one Cover Girl compact makeup that will work and won’t break my skin out too much. I did buy a “regulation” TSA quart ziplock and it is actually a little bigger than a regular ziplock quart size bag. Yeah!! I will take all the prayers I can get (especially for RESTFUL SLEEP). Thanks!

    God bless you as you walk in this new path of life…I sure will pray for you…I believe God wants you to go and will use you in a mighty way…. keep good notes so that you can share how God is working…

    Psalm 118:24 This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
