I usually fly Continental too, but I snagged a "too good to pass up" deal that included hotel and air fare. Normally, I'd stay with one of my sisters, but this is an anniversary present and it's a different kind of trip, where I'd like to celebrate the fact that I'm still married after 40 years, but if you knew me, you'd ask, "WHY"!
I'm a Virgo, so that should give you a hint! I'm a former "perfectionist" and everything had to be just so! Now that I know I'll never be perfect, I'm not exactly a slob, yet, but I don't sweat the dumb stuff anymore. My husband, btw is a Virgo too. Who else would have me?
I like to have at least 2 bags, so that I can buy souvenirs too! Packing light, just for that reason. I'm staying 7 days and 6 nights, so I'm packing little or no sleepwear, but I still have a fetish about getting my feet dirty so slippers and underwear are a must. A woman of a "certain" age, gets a little fussy in their old age. I'll be okay. It's just like "when you thought it was safe to go back into the water" thing.
Calling my airline to be sure and safe. I tend to carry water when I travel, so I'll drink it all, before I board. They take it away from you. Other than that, I'm not worried because we're retired military with the holograms in our ID.
