Pack it up..Pack it in..Let me begin..

You know how you just get some of your fathers gifts in life...Well, I didn't get his lawyerish (my word) smarts, I didn't get his ability to run mile after mile, I didn't get his math skills (I have T for this)or his awesome ability to pay bills on time (I have T for this too), but what I did get was the gift of being just a tad bit on the anal side. Now being like this is not a bad thing, until I start to get on my wife's nerves. Then I get looks, head shakes, and more looks.

So with vacation coming up that means we have tons to do. Actually that means T has tons to do. I sit on my ass all day and she has to pack her stuff, my stuff, and 4 kids things. Also getting food and snacks and whatever else we needs to last us the week at the beach.  Now while she will pack all of my shit for me into the suitcase, one thing she probably wont do is actually get all of my shit together. The reason for this is that I will more than likely...

A. Complain
B. Not like what she packed
C. Not have what I need or want
D. Act like such a jerk that she will leave all my shit at home
E. All of the above.

So this Sunday I got a note pad and pen and as I started gathering the clothes that I need to pack. I keep thinking about how many days, how many nights, are we eating out, we will be in Savannah for half a day, will I hit the gym there, all of this is playing out in my (small) brain. T couldn't believe I was actually writing this down.

So that is proof. I did make a list and I still cant figure out if I have enough. I do this every time we go on vacation and it never fails, I NEVER wear everything. I wear some stuff twice. We go to Disney, I pack it all, and never wear half of it.

So this is what I have so far. For eight days...I have 4 pair of nice cotton shorts, 3 pair of nice nice shorts, 3 pair of shorts to sleep in, 2 pair swim shorts, 4 beaters, 2 pair socks, 5 pair boxer briefs, 3 pair extra shorts, 2 Under Armour shirts, 4 nice shirts, 3 t-shirts, belt, hats-visor, crocs, flips flops, running shoes....and whatever else I can think of and that doesn't include all my man grooming items.

Pack a little too much?

I totally pack like that. Especially for the kids. Sean would just toss a few items in and wouldn't have nearly enough clothes if it weren't for me. Although he would have plenty of socks. Socks are the only thing he's really worried about. He doesn't understand why I pack him so many pairs of jeans and extra t-shirts.

OK Jenny, Crocs dont suck, better to have them to wear at the beach for fishing and sand and shit other than those jesus sandals or the water shoes

KAT- You need to stop. Would Tim Tebow lose points if he had a UofF color or pair...NO!!! And I do have my nice ultra super sweet very cool shorts packed
