I have discovered that with a good checklist I almost don’t need a brain. Which is good because in the throes of packing, my brain gets a bit scrambled. And Mr. Lifepal has no head for packing at all. He’s in charge of pre-trip arrangements: tickets, seat assignments, and communications with fellow travelers. I step in when the suitcases get rolled out. And for that, a good checklist is a beautiful thing.
This trip I converted to Trello for the checklist-pretty, and easy, and free! Mr. Lifepal and i shared a set of lists, and in the middle of scramble brain, it was a huge comfort.
All the things are checked off. It must be time to leave. We’re ready!
