Did I Mention That I Overpacked?

There was no way in the world that I was going to be able to stuff my regular shoes into my bag.  I bought a huge duffel bag while in Arizona.  It folds pretty flat, and the idea was that I would pack it into my regular luggage when travelling out and put my overflow in the bag when travelling back.  I mean, there are two consignment shops right near my office, plus stores like Marshalls.  I wonder if they have a different selection than they do in Virginia, but I haven't had a chance to go in yet.

With the skirts I bought, and the panty I mentioned, and the fact that I couldn't pack around the breast form boxes like I did when heading out my bag was completely stuffed.  Every little pocket was packed, and I could barely close the zippers on the main compartment.  I put a little overflow into my computer bag.  I dumped papers I could reprint at my home office, even though I hate wasting paper.  I left behind a half-full bottle of Nair, and a can of shaving gel I bought in Sierra Vista.

And I had two choices when I left Tucson: I could pack a lot of stuff into the duffel and probably have to check it, or I could pack a little into it and it'll flop around like a pea in a pillowcase.  As flat as I could make it, the duffel wouldn't fit in my suitcase or my computer bag.  So I took the other choice: I left it in the hotel room.  I hope someone on the staff made good use of it.  Maybe my friend A.

My day is brighter when I hear from my friends!
