No Packing Formula

This week I am teaching a course in Germany. However, there is no packing formula to apply as I am teaching virtually.

Empty Suitcase, Packing, packing formula, Trip, TravelOf course, I would have started with an empty suitcase. I would have done laundry so most of the clothes that I planned to take would have been folded and ready to select. This week I just have to figure out what to wear in front of the camera.

No need to check the weather in Germany, but it is probably cooler than here. This is not the weather for here this week, but it will be similar this week and maybe a bit hotter.

I would also have tidied up my toiletry kit and dropped it in the suitcase and made sure that I had plenty of books tucked away in the suitcase. I am at home so have plenty to read here.

Now to figure out my sleep schedule for this week. I will be teaching all night long starting on Monday night.

Now to decide whether to stay up part of the night and sleep most of the day tomorrow, or to get a good night of sleep and sleep again on Tuesday.
