1. ATTENTION THIEVES! I'm headed to Israel this week. The guard dog and laser alarm system are in place. See you after Thanksgiving. Good luck!
2. As much as I like traveling and really should have everything I need for a long trip, I still find a reason to buy ONE MORE THING I just gotta have. (I'm talking to you, new iPad cover!)
3. I hate packing. For two reasons. First, I'm paranoid I'll forget something (especially my passport). Second, Rudy always seems to look depressed and is extra affectionate - which I love but it still makes me feel guilty!
