Conversations in Packing

What temperature will it be? Is that warm or cold? HOW many sweaters do I need?

Should I take the Tinkerbell suitcase or the (giant) red one? But I don’t LIKE Tinkerbell. No, I won’t share the red one with anyone else! You’re MEAN! Can I call Grandma and ask her to buy me a new suitcase for Christmas?

Where’s my Nintendo/iPod charger/favourite sweater/book/Quatchi toy? What do you mean it’s my job to keep track of my stuff? It’s not MY fault I lost it. No it isn’t! No it isn’t! But I ALREADY looked and I CAN’T find it! Harrgghhh! FINE! <Fifteen minutes later> I found it!

We’re not leaving yet, Lucky. It’s too early to sit in your crate. Don’t worry, we’re taking you with us. I promise. Yes, I did just make a promise to a dog.

Can I take off my underwear in the car?

Yes, the Mamadragon-Fixit family is packing ’em up and moving ’em out. We’re off on a road trip to see the Southwestern Ontario branches of the family. The last road trip of the summer, before school starts on Tuesday. It promises to be a fun and relaxing little getaway.

But the packing might just kill me before we go.
