I am a planner. As I get older, I'm becoming more lax in my planning, but for big stuff I still like to map it out. Especially when it comes to traveling. While I have mostly given up the trip planning duties to Brad, I'm still 100% in charge of my own packing, and I'm a devout packing list maker. The idea of traveling without something I need terrifies me. I just can't relax if I haven't packed by list and checked everything off by the time I leave. The annoying thing is rewriting the list every trip and second guessing my memory. So, my friends, I've finally gotten around to creating a permalist that can be printed and used for each trip. And because I like you, I'm sharing my list with you for your own personal use as well. (I have a pretty table created with lovely fonts and such, but apparently I am not allowed to upload PDFs on this site. Hmph. Should you want it, ask and I will email directly to you! Or else copy the text below and customize your own table.)
Column 1, Item; Column 2, Packed (check y or n); Column 3, Notes
Flight and hotel info

On a different note, Brad and I had our visit with the Humane Society foster program representative tonight. I think we passed! :) Now we just have to wait a week for our paperwork to go through and then we'll be signed up on the group list to start picking doggies! I'm so glad we're able to do this and hopefully help make the life of some doggies a little bit better.
