because it is too early to pack (and because i haven't done pre-trip laundry yet) i have this urge to meticulously list every little thing i am taking. the list would start with "tent" and end with "toothbrush" or "batteries" or "hat." oh that reminds me. my little travel tube of toothpaste is almost out.
see? this is what such a thing would accomplish. i would be assured of forgetting nothing and i could think how i wanted to organize it all so as to keep it neat. because it is very very important to keep it neat.
