Packing for a two week journey has unique challenges. I had already resided myself that I was going to have to pay extra to USAirways to check two bags. Now all i needed to cull thru my lists and make sure that everything I needed can be in two bags under 50lbs, plus carry on.

List made, clothes, toys, everything is packed. Each bag is less than 47#. There is no way I forgot anything. I feel like i'm taking EVERYthing.

Sunday Morning. Final load of laundry done, sheets changed. Ready for my dear friend Bert to move in and tend to my two four legged boys. Online Check in- wow.. first class upgrade. works for me.

As excited as I am, It tears my heart out to leave the dogs. Since I usually work from home, they are used to human interaction a lot. I know I'm leaving them in good hands with Bert, it was still hard to leave them this morning.

8:30 AM sharp, my friend Jeff, picks me up to take me to the airport. You know, "it takes a village" has new meaning being a single man and traveling. Dear friend Jeff, sweet to load up his car with my steamer trunks. Also, great benefit that he's also a vet. Good to have another pair of eyes watching out for my boys while i'm gone.

Airport check in is a breeze. seat 3C first class. 2 Bloody Mary life is good.
