Fools Like Me

Being the control freak that I am, I have started to pack my things last week.

I know. 

Raft3r will still be here for a good two months. But I can't help it. I wanted to see if all the stuff I bought so far would all fit in my four bags.

Raft3r is will not tolerate excess baggage charges in the airport. No way.

This is where we're at right now.

Raft3r bought a bigger laptop bag, the backpack kind. It can hold a lot of stuff. So I put in Victoria's Secrets undies for my ladies back home. Shirts followed. I piled them up one by one. There's space left for more goodies. Excellent. That makes for one of my two hand carries.

The other is my mail bag and is now overflowing with DVDs and CDs. Raft3r's not complaining.

The two checked in luggages are my large CK duffle bag and my small Benetton trolley. 

My colleagues have all bought new and bigger luggages. Raft3r refuses to do the same.

The duffle bag now contains lotions, children's clothes and jeans, two ladies bag, a beach bag, toys. It's quite heavy. The trolley is still bare. Raft3r plans to put in all my old things there.

With all the packing, Raft3r realized he needs to stop shopping. Seriously. I must stop.

Maybe just one more DVD purchase. Please.
