Packing

I feel kind of grown up - instead of a big duffle bag and several smaller tote bags, I am using an actual piece of Samsonite luggage for my long weekend vacation (is it still a long weekend when it's 4 nights/5 days?). I've all my clothes packed up, and there's still room for my toiletries and blanket!

It's a lot of clothes, too, because I hate not having options when dressing in the morning.
3 sundresses
3 bike shorts for under my dresses
3 pairs of shorts
4 tank top shirts
4 short sleeve shirts
1 long-sleeved tshirt for night-time lake sitting (mosquitos!)
2 bathing suits (so I can swim 2x/day and not have to put on a wet suit, ick)
2 beach towels
1 knee-length yoga pants (for the gym)
2 gym shirts
pyjama pants
6 pairs of socks (extras just in case)
pool flip-flops

I still have to pack (and this is a reference list for me, too):
sneakers
underwear + bras
toiletries (shampoo, shavers, face + body washes, deodorant, teeth stuff, sunscreen, bug spray)
hair things (extra elastics and barrettes in case any break, bobby pins to make sure pink hair doesn't get wet in the pool)
blankie
knit green blanket (because hotels never have small blankets)
sweatshirt (might not, because of the long-sleeved t-shirt)
cool/sweat rag for the parks
hat

All of the above will fit into my suitcase, it's amazing.

and also entertainment things that MAY fit, or go in a smaller bag
knitting supplies (2 balls of yarn + needles + pattern + notions)
2 paperback books (Jingo and Dark Mirror: The Rise of Anti-Jewish Medieval Iconography)
hobonichi techo + decoration things (and my Now Playing TCM guide to fill in empty pages)
phone charger cords
mp3 charging cord
laptop

I'm always worried about rainy days making it no fun to go out, and when that happens, I go to one of the resorts with lots of indoor lounging places with a book/knitting and just relax for a while. And then since I'm gone 4 nights, I have my laptop to help with any FP+ or dining reservations that I want to fix, and to catch up on the internet before bed or while i"m waking up in the morning.
more talking about my trip plans )

I leave on Friday after work! I'm staying at Coronado Springs again, because it was the least expensive moderate resort, and hopefully will have as great a room as I had in January.
