Packed

I'm taking a break to drink a beer and make a quick post before going to bed.

Everything that's going with me is generally packed at this point. My two giant suitcases are both at 50 pounds (the weight limit), so I can't put anything more into either of them. I'm trying to work with my back pack to figure out the best way to fit the remaining items into it. Mainly papers, this laptop and small odds and ends. I keep having to stop and remind myself that yes, they do sell socks and shampoo in Germany, I don't need to pack like I'm going to go live in the jungle for the rest of my life. I just need to take the really important stuff, and everything else can be replaced.

I have reduced my entire CD and DVD collection to a single spool of disks, and my file cabinet of "important papers" has been condensed into a 2-inch tall stack of documents.

I'll be wearing as many clothes as I can possibly layer onto myself without making myself massively uncomfortable.

Tomorrow's going to be a busy day, but I'm hoping I can get everything done so I can just chill on Tuesday before I have to leave (I'm leaving for the airport at 6pm on Tuesday evening).

It's only a matter of hours now.
