Whenever I travel, wherever I go, I like to pack light. I don’t like lugging a lot of weight with me.
Starting yesterday, I’ll be packing a smaller, lighter-colored car:
Here’s a closer look at the light sign the Honda dealer packed into my new car. It says
According to my friend Deb (who lives in caring Cambridge)
… my new Honda Fit (lighter than hers) can fit and carry around a lot of weight inside. Nevertheless, I am NOT giving all those caring Cambridge people a thank-you ride (although I did give one to Deb, who is very light).
I like carrying around people who care with me, because it helps me feel lighter. For example, WordPresser David Kanigan authentically cares and lightens the load of his readers, and I carried him lightly in my thoughts when I saw this, last night :
Speaking of Humpday, my son Aaron, my ex-sister-in-law Deborah and I will be arriving in Edinburgh this Wednesday (known as Humpday, in case you weren’t carrying that around with you). Indeed, I was at the Burlington Mall last night to figure out how I might lighten my load about this trip, especially regarding blogging.
At the Verizon store
Robert (left) told me I could pack light, leave my laptop at home, and blog easily from Scotland with just the lightness of my phone. Robert was so helpful in enlightening me that I told his manager Bill (right). Bill was so helpful that I told HIS manager (not pictured, because he was camera-shy). Thanks for lightening my load last night, guys!
Phew! That was a load off my mind, about my daily blogging. After that Verizon visit, I could just enjoy being at the Burlington Mall with Michael, taking in the light sights.
- Sore thumbs, from excessive phone blogging and
- Sleep problems.
One of my major decisions about packing light for my trip to Scotland is whether to take my sleep machine, which is different from this one:
Michael said, lightly, about that machine, “You smash it against your head and you’re out like a light.”
I considered buying this t-shirt
Earlier yesterday, when the sky was lighter, I gave Aaron a lift to American Idiot in my new light car, and saw this:
When I was riding in my new light car with Aaron, we heard this song:
… which reminded me of this YouTube video, which lightened my mood when I watched it last week:
One more light thing I want to pack in here, before I end this light post. I told Michael that my new light car would be easier to find, no matter where we packed — I mean, parked — it …
… and I was right.
To lighten the load on my blogging thumbs, I’m not going to pack too much into this gratitude paragraph, simply thanking Aaron, David, the two Debs, Michael, Verizon’s Bill and Robert, dondrapersayswhat (for all the movies packed into that “Uptown Funk” video), and you — of course! — for helping me pack lighter, every day.
