It Was Not the End of the World, but

This is now day 3 of the current trip from Hell where things have been a tad upsetting.  When I have to wear the exact same duds for 3 days in a row I tend to get a little crabby and a tad musty.  Even with 2 showers a day you just don't feel fresh as a daisy stepping into exactly the same clothes.  Fortunately our bag came a bit ago and I was able to fling the ever so comfortable plaid pants into the dirty clothes and start over. (Note to all concerned: Never travel in an obvious print or plaid.  If I had worn jeans I could have bought any top and it would have worked with a minimal investment, and it would not be noticeable that I was wearing the same thing. Even jeans and the same black sweater would work. Instead I wore an odd color that had very limited matching possibilities, and was obviously the same thing worn over and over.  Live and learn)

  1. I am so glad that your bag has finally caught up with you - and hope the holiday from hell improves rapidly. And radically.

  3. for the rest of your life, you will wear something forgettable on every flight and you will probably never again suffer a lost bag!

    1. Not just forgettable, but something that will blend with the surroundlings

  4. Oh dear, reading this post and the previous post gave me anxiety thinking about traveling by air. That's something I really dislike and try to avoid. One thing I always did was pack undies and toothbrushes (for all three of us) into my carry on bag in case they ever lost our checked luggage.

  5. Sorry that your luggage was lost, but I've learned something important about what to wear on the plane. You did not suffer in vain. :)
