Once Upon A Time

Going on a Trip circa 1984
Back in the day, packing was easy. Grab Teddy in the backpack carrier and some raisins and cranberry juice concentrate or tofu for sustenance and I would be ready for a journey. Not a journey of much distance, granted, but a journey none the less. Now a journey requires doing multiple loads of laundry, making phone calls, emails, facebook, checking in for flights on line, consulting transit schedules, talking to people on IM, and more. Being a grown up is complicated. I liked going on trips with Teddy, but I doubt there was as much excitement on those trips.
See, tomorrow I am going to visit my parents. And Ben's coming too. And we get to see all sorts of fun people. So while packing and planning may be a pain, in the end I know it will be worth it. And Teddy may even be there at my parent's house waiting for us.
