How do you pack for a month and a half?
I want to take all of my cute skirts, capris, tank tops, tops, dresses, shoes ... so how does one narrow that down for one and a half months? I'm trying to keep in mind that I'll be able to do laundry ... and that at Stone Soup there's a camp t-shirt that I'll wear - so for those work days I'll only need pants - but still, my suitcase weighs "a ton". I don't want to have to do laundry every day, and I want to be able to wear a nice outfit if I were to go out to the theatre with my friend, or out for drinks somewhere, or to a museum etc ... plus my blow dryer and hair brush, make up, jewelry, under garments, tootpaste/brush and other bathroom type things ... so I've got stuff packed, and of course things still on hangers and in drawers that I'd love to bring but that I have kept where they are. And I am sure that while I'm out in Seattle I will discover that I've "forgotten to pack" something I'll have wanted ... but I digress.
I hate packing!
