Tackle It Tuesday — Packing for Blissdom Canada

by Susan

What a surprise… Janice is scrambling to pack her bags the night before leaving for a blogging conference.

She’s so behind, she’s making ME tell you about her tackle which is fittingly, prepping for Blissdom Canada.

But before I tell you about her tackle, I first need to whine and moan a little that I’m sadly not joining Jan on the plane to Toronto tomorrow morning.

You see, Janice and I are on the Canadian Advisory Board for Blissdom Canada and we were both excited to attend.

But by some bizarre stroke of bad luck my eardrum burst after my plane ride to BlogHer 10 in New York. My ear was badly damaged and my doctor advised me to not fly for several months.

So… again Janice gets to have all the fun… no, I’m not bitter at all. LOL

Well, the one part of traveling that is NO fun is packing, so I’m not jealous of that. As I type this, Janice keeps ringing me on the phone to ask if she can borrow this and that. “Make a list!” I just told her, “I’m trying to publish your tackle right now!”

I have no before and after photos of Janice’s packing tackle, instead imagine her running around trying to find enough clean clothes to toss into her bag.

And I have to run as she’s got more work for me to still do tonight…

But enough about us… what about YOU???

Happy Tackling!
