“I know nothing with an certainty, but the sight of stars makes me dream.” – Vincent Van Gogh
Today’s the day! My last day in the US started with the realization – a bit like a bucket of cold water thrown on one’s head – that my alarm hadn’t gone off because my phone was rebooting. Good thing Mitch and I don’t have to be at the airport until later this afternoon.
The other issue I’ve been facing is how much stuff I have. Malaysia is a tropical country so all of my winter clothes (I live in Upstate New York so that really means most of my clothes) are staying in the US or have already been donated to Goodwill. Nevertheless, one of my suitcases is at risk of being considered freight (means over 70lbs) and therefore not allowed on the plane and the other is about half a pound shy of overweight baggage charges (means it’s just under 50lbs). Geez. I am apparently bad at minimizing.
Wish us luck! Get ready for great stories!
