It's been a struggle.
I'm in the process of picking and choosing the things that I will pack, and this is what I have so far:
Four outfits laid out on my bed, for use in varying situations: one nicer outfit that I might wear to the mall, one outfit that I might wear to Irish Fest (doesn't matter if it gets rained on, spilled on, etc.), an outfit that is smack in the middle between pajamas and a wedding dress (I wouldn't want to stain it but wouldn't care if it was a little wrinkled), and a white t-shirt. I have three different lengths of pants that could be worn with any of the outfits, depending on the weather. I have two sweatshirts, one for colder weather and one for less-cold-but-still-cold-enough-for-a-sweatshirt weather. I have my phone (and the charger, incase the battery runs out), my laptop and the charger (incase we want to check up on Dusty; they have live "puppy-cams" and they tell you which playroom your dog will be in). I have my toothbrush and toothpaste. A brush and a comb. I have my math and spanish packets, which I tell myself that I will do if I have time, and my DS which will most likely be what I will end up using instead. And of course, the Dark Chocolate Goji Raspberries, which I tell myself are for the car ride up there, and which I will most likely end up shoving in my face every time I have a spare second.
Am I over-thinking this?
