Maybe you noticed that I forgot to blog this week.
It's true- I just kind of forgot, mostly because I was busy developing an obsessive compulsive disorder from watching a video which features a baby monkey riding backwards on the back of a small pig.
I have been watching this on a fairly constant loop for the past few days and it has caused me to break out in Baby Monkey Tourettes syndrome. I find myself suddenly yelling, "BABY MONKEY! THE WORLD HAS GONE INSANE!". There is no end to it. It's my new normal.
I have also begun to obsess about a trip which my family is going to take in about a month. We are going to Arizona to visit my mom and take in the sights. This trip gives me so many things to worry about.
1. Planes: Flying makes me very twitchy. Seriously, we are crammed in a metal box and we go hurtling through the sky and somehow do not fall down. shiver. Plus, I haven't flown since 2005. Back then you only had to take off your shoes to fly. Now you have to get naked and not carry toiletries. I don't like public nudity and what if they take away my saline solution? THE WORLD HAS GONE INSANE!
2. Footwear: We are going to be visiting a few national parks were I will need to be doing a lot of walking. I probably will not be able to rely solely on flip-flops. I do not wear sneakers unless I am exercising because, well, cute footwear is important to me and sneakers with jeans are a crime which I am just unwilling to commit. GRAB ON YOUR PIG AND RIDE!
3. Luggage: Well, not really luggage as much as what purse I should carry. I like to have a large slouchy handbag, but this seems impractical for such a trip. I do not want to be one of those industrial backpack toting, Merrell wearing, cargo short clad tourists with a fanny pack and a sturdy hat, yet I suspect that some sort of backpack will be the best option. RIDING BACKWARDS ON A PIG!
I need your help. We will be going to the Grand Canyon, Tuzigoot, Montezuma's Castle and Out of Africa. We are staying in Prescott Valley. What should I pack to be both cute and comfortable?
