Yeah, I don't think this would work!
Can I just share with you how much I hate packing?
First there's the pre-packing, which involves writing a list, doing uber amounts of laundry, visiting my pharmacy a million times, and zip locking all my clothes into see through zipper bags of various sizes so:
1. I can see where things are
3. I worry about bedbugs & zip locking your clothes is supposed to help
3. Airport security won't make a total mess of my jam packed purple suitcase!
My diabetes supplies takes up more room that they have a right too, and I always pack more than I need regarding said diabetes supplies.
I have a thing about my feet NEVER touching a hotel room floor (no matter the hotel) so I end up bringing a ridiculous amount of white footie socks!
I'm always concerned about my feet being comfortable so I always bring at least 3 pairs of shoes!
I'm always worried about the weather so even if the forecast calls for sun - I bring at least one sweater, plus the plane's ventilating system tends to freeze me out 1/2 way through the trip!
I always bring extra clothes because I'm all about options!
And all I can say is this girl needs options!
AM I the only PWD who has travel idiosyncrasies?
Now, what's with all the packing? I'm leaving for LA bright and early tomorrow morning on a 7:30 am flight (which means getting up at 4.a.m) leaving for the Airport by 5!
I'll be attending the 2011 Medtronic Diabetes Advocate Forum on Friday, April 1st and I'm excited! I'm looking forward to attending; participating,g and watching the conference through others eyes, while learning more than a thing or two in the process!
You can follow the conference on Friday, April 1st on twitter - The hashtag is:
More on this the Forum to follow!
FYI: If you have any questions re: leave them on Friday's post and I'll pass them along!
Disclosure: As I've mentioned in a previous post, Medtronic paid me as an independent contractor to do some consulting with them re: Forum. Medtronic is also paying my expenses (and others attending) including; travel, hotel, meals, etc to attend said Forum.
Medtronic is NOT paying me to write about this event, nor did they tell me what I can or cannot write about this event.
My thoughts, I will of course be sharing with you are my own and from my own diabetesalicious brain~
