Packing is difficult. Until they invent a way to miniaturize my clothes in my suitcase, it's going to stay that way. But I was able to pack for 19 days in ONE carry on. And I'd like to think I didn't look homeless. I know you've probably heard all the stories about layering and all that jazz. But how can you actually fit it all in?

You guys, taking care of a full grown man who is acting like a 4-year-old is hard work. Michael dislocated his right shoulder and cannot: drive, shower, open anything, water the yard, or do anything remotely helpful around the house. 3 and a half years ago I broke the crap out of my ankle and leg.
