Where's MY Locker?
I'm in England for Christmas with my in-laws and I can't help thinking about how much easier this trip would be if I only had a Locker here with my stuff in it. You'd think that if anyone could figure out how to have a Locker, I could. But I here I sit near the Scottish border without a lot of the things I need.
I had to go out this morning to buy an adaptor so I could charge this laptop. The battery had run down and the plugs in England are...well...different. And that's just the latest thing. Even though I spent most of my private live as a corporate road warrior, packing is no longer automatic. I don't travel as much these days and I had frankly forgotten what a hassle it is to pack. My shaving kit filled up much too quickly because I don't have all of those little sample-size toiletries. I had two or three packing lists and then I panicked because I thought I'd lost one of my lists. When I got here, I wanted to write but forgot to put paper in my briefcase. I washed my hair with some strange shampoo today because that was all I could find.
I need to head back out on Christmas Eve and look for a phone charger--that should be fun. I wish I'd thought of that earlier. Susan and I were out shopping and we fell in love a couple of really nice wine glasses that we'd like to keep at her parent's house. They'll get broken if we try to take them back to Celebration...and they may well get broken if they stay here in England. But not if we had a Locker.
Oh well, I guess it's a good thing that I have a reminder of what a hassle it is to pack and how stressful it can be to have to deal with all of the things you don't realize you need until you're away from home and have to go on a quest.
Maybe we'll open a branch of Owner's Locker here in the Lake District.
Happy Holidays, everyone!!
