I'm Outta Here!

Tomorrow evening I am leaving my sweetheart, getting on a bus, and traveling to Chicago to see my family.  It's supposed to be a 6.5 hour trip.  Uh-huh.  With Grace.  By myself.  'Nuff said.

I started gearing up for my trip last night by staying up till midnight (!!) to finish the laundry. I am currently all packed except for the items that I will need before I get on the bus.  I feel very confident that I will not forget anything essential because of my superior memory a beautiful little tip a helpful lady in my church gave me.  Last time I traveled by myself was in May for my friend Andrea's wedding.   As I stewed over forgetting something important, Mrs. Peacock recommended that I make a master traveling list.  It was a great idea.  I just pulled out my list from last May, made a new one to accommodate a few new items that I need to take, and voila!  I was ready to roll.

I thought I would include my list, so you could copy, paste, and change to suit your needs.  My list is for Grace and me, as I generally don't pack for my husband.

My list is for a 7-day trip with relatives, so I have access to a washer/dryer, and I won't need to bring shampoo, soap, towels, or hair dryer.
