I have shipped off all the gifts that I can, but will have to carry-on some special pieces. Which I can handle, I think. I mean, I'm not exactly the easiest bag handler.
Also? I am checking two bags. I know this because I'm nesting my luggage. That means that on my way home, I'll have 4 checked bags. Seem excessive? Well, I'm not paying for this trip thanks to my work contract and the contract rate, I get 2 bags free and I'm filling up my bags with homewares and what not since I don't want to pay shipping for all of that stuff out to DC. Clever, huh?
Since I have most of my shopping done, I have a hostess gift, some groceries, and a white elephant gift left, those are easily attained all in one place. I'm pretty proud of myself that I don't have to put everything in my suitcases...but I have to wrap everything as soon as I get to CO. urshdusfuhauauwfh (That sounds a little like a zombie moan in my head.)
Here's some more holiday cheer...
