Leaving on a jet plane.

So, first of all, I need to say this:


O.K., now that that's out of the way...

In two days I'm leaving for Las Vegas to spend five days with a bunch of awesome women, NO children and hopefully more than a few drag queens.

In an hour I'm heading to the airport to pick up my parents, who are spending the week here taking care of my spawn their grandchildren.

I need this vacation. I need about five of them a year, but I'll settle for the one.

Anyway, I'm going to try something different this trip. I'm going to challenge myself to accomplish something I never have been able to before.

This insurmountable challenge?

I'm going to attempt to only have a carry on and no checked luggage.

Anyone who has ever traveled with me is laughing right now. I'm a notorious over packer. But I just know my luck. I know that my luggage would be lost and I'd be stuck wearing the same outfit for the whole week and borrowing someone's toothbrush. So, I'm going to try. I have a carry-on approved rolling bag and my laptop bag. I'm going to attempt to fit all my clothes, shoes and toiletries for five days into this bag:

Wish me luck.

Also, I can probably look forward to a few full body pat downs and cavity searches. It was cheaper to buy two one way tickets on different airlines than a round trip ticket. So, I'm flying one way with no checked luggage. If that doesn't send up a red flag or two, then our system has failed, because that would make even me suspicious of me.

Anyway, I have a couple of posts set to go up over the next few days because I'll be kind of busy. I never pre-write posts, so hopefully they actually post when scheduled. And I'll be checking in frequently from Vegas. I promise.
