It's in the bag

On family vacations no one offered to carry my suitcase even though I am the youngest and for quite a while, small. My family would stride briskly in front of me as I hobbled behind, listing to one side. And every vacation my Dad would say "What? Did you pack weights?". Until the trip to Lake Erie when I did pack 5 lb. ankle weights (Jane Fonda was popular. I was chunky). While my sister packed clothes, makeup and curling irons and my parents packed whatever parents pack. I packed books.

Nowadays I usually have 3 books on me at one time. I have something to read whatever my mood. Each week I'll highlight a book I am currently reading. Be prepared for a strange mix - I'm a complicated girl.
