• • .... • ;: • 7- Vacation packing Continued from page 2 is sitting forlornly in your drive- way, waiting for your return. But that' s the furthest thing from your mind as you drive away from home. That's because you've en- tered the''Did I lock the front door T' stage of your vacation, though lock- ing the front door doesn't begin to cover everything you're imagin- ing. As you get farther and farther from home, you start to wonder if someone left the space heater on, even though no one in the family has used it since December, and it's now July. Then you wonder if you left the water running in the bathroom sink, even though you've never left the water running before. But, two hours fromhome, you're convinced that you did, and that you probably left the drain plugged too, though you rarely plug the drain: You're sure that, by this time, water is pouring over the side of the sink, and it will be for the duration of your trip. This is exactly the kind of stress that makes vacations so im- portanc You don't mention your anxi- ety to anyone. You just snap at them. But they don't suspect, be- cause that's what family vacations are for. And you resist the urge to turn back, so eventually you arrive safely at your destination. But you can't relax yet. You're now enter- ing the, "Who cares if I left the water running; I forgot to pack pants," phase of your trip. You dig through any baggage you remem- bered to bring -- including the cooler. (In that last minute rush to finish packing, anything could have happened.) Then you dig through it all again. And again. No pants! Plus, after all-the digging, your suitcase looks like your laundry basket back home. Living out of a suitcase is hard enough; living out of laundry basket is even tougher, though I'm not sure why. You've been doing it for years. Despite everything, you' re hav- ing a pleasant vacation. It would be even better if you weren't spend- ing so much of it shopping for everything you left behind, and better still if your spouse didn't keep remindingyou of the fact. At last it's time to head home. You' re now entering the final stages of your journey: the "It all fit in the car before. Why doesn't it fit now?" phase. It will be several more hours before you enter the "Did anyone remember to grab my suitcase.'?" sta~e. LEADER Ads Work! [ Hastings Federal Credit Union 707 N.
