This is embarrassing to admit with all that is going on in the country, but I’ve a packing problem.

My bag is overweight and we have not even left. My previous remedy to this situation, pass the extra to Mark. But he isn’t going on this trip. I’m not going to ask Cheryl, I just can’t. So I remove items. A pair of shoes, couple dresses, a sweater…umbrella (can get one there right?) down 1/2 lb… what the hell. 

So maybe the duffle will be lighter?  Otherwise more discarding. Utterly ridiculous. My heart goes out to those in Texas and Florida and my problems are utterly ridiculous.
