all the things you can do instead of pack

I'll be packing all day.

I should have come home after church yesterday and packed, but instead I made bread and mango and apple hand pies, forgetting, then, to take them out of the oven and nonchalantly skipping out to Wegmans for baby food, Matt's power bars, and tea. I then spent a whole hour at Wegmans desperately trying to call Matt who refused to pick up the phone (because it wasn't ringing). I called Greg accidentally and asked him to email Matt. And finally I called Matt's mom who sensibly called the neighbor who came running across to get the bread out of the oven. All these people were supposed to tell Matt to Call Me to explain what kind of power bars he required, But for some inexplicable reason, he decided not to call. So I stood agonizingly in the power bar aisle for 35 minutes reading the back of every kind of bar.

So, I'll be packing all day.

Hi Anne. I've been praying that your trip would go well. I mentioned your travel plans to one of my friends who is very savvy about air travel. He suggested that when you check in, you request that someone help you onto the plane. Apparently, they will actually provide a person to escort you, the children, and all of your stuff through security and onto the plane. You could even request that they provide someone to help with your transfer at the next airport as well. I hope it goes well and that you have a wonderful visit. Love, Katy

Matt needs to gain a few pounds any way. Buy him whatever had the most grams of fat.
