|Not sure this will hold all of the pills
I will need for 24 hrs., but you get the gist
In theory, vacations seem like a good idea. For me, however, the mirage of rest and relaxation doesn’t really compensate for the sheer stress of packing alone (forget even kid-wrangling once on said vacation). This whole discussion is less applicable, however, as my family doesn’t really vacation anyway. I have touched on packing frenzy before, but in this instance, I am talking solely about the stress of getting myself ready to leave for an overnight trip. Somehow between my 20s and 30s, prepping for a “quick getaway” has becomes less of “toss a bunch of crap in a duffle bag” to “will I be able to fit all of my stuff in the large suitcase or should I take two?”. The pill box alone scares me. I envision needing something as pictured to the right, though I wish it had a handle for carrying convenience…And do they make special cases just to hold all of the special night creams I now require? Also, my reading obsession leads to difficulties. The sheer mention of the word “getaway” leads to fantasies of hours of peaceful relaxation. This, of course, sends me into a panic. Which book should I choose? Would it be better to catch up on a few magazines instead? It’s probably best to just pack EVERY SINGLE ITEM in our house with a printed word just in case. Ergo, we are now going to scratch the whole suitcase scenario altogether and just load up a trailer for me to pull behind the minivan. Yes, watch out–this Mom of the Year is making a definite care-free escape!
