I finally started to pack

I’m sloooooowwwlllyyyy getting ready to leave for Casa on Friday.  I knew I had to buy a backpack for Morocco as we will be taking some weekend trips and I will be backpacking (kind of) after my assignment.  I also had to purchase a sleeping bag.  I went to Mountain Equipment Co-op, downtown Toronto this weekend.  It’s a pretty cool, not for profit, retail store with everything you can imagine for the outdoors.  I had already researched the pack, but decided to venture into the sleeping bag section.  I was so shocked to see sleeps with price tags over $300!!!  I couldn’t believe my eyes!  I asked the gentleman in the section more about the technology of the bags.  Needless to say, I was there for about 30 minutes learning about the rating system, the reason for higher prices, etc…  And, of course, it ended up with me getting in one.  hehe.  I left the store without buying a sleeping bag because I couldn’t justify the price.  BUT, I had a good time trying them out.  I ended up buying a Roots (Canadian clothing brand) sleeping bag from Canadian Tire (large Canadian retailer) for $40!!  It’s bulky but I think it will be fine for just one night 🙂

This bag was $120.  Not too bad but I needed a larger size, and they didn't have it.

So after much procrastination, I finally started thinking about packing tonight.  I say thinking because I actually haven’t put anything in a suitcase.  I have simply pulled some items off hangers and took clothes off shelves.  I will start the process of the packing strategy, most likely, on Thursday.  I also made a list of things I have to do before I leave.  I thought the list was small, but it’s growing at a high rate of speed.  I’m not worried though, I will get it done.  Thankfully, I have finished all of my CSC pre work!!

I think I am last minute because my current role has taken up a lot of my mental capacity.  I have one more, very important, client meeting on Thursday.  I will probably run out of the meeting feeling like a kid on the last day of school before summer holidays, when the bell rings.

My flight is Friday at 6:25pm.  It will be here in the blink of an eye.
