So here I am 17 days, 10 hours and 44 minutes away from going home to Australia and I have all of my suitcases fully packed except one, my final suitcase, which is currently 41 lbs, this means I have 9 lbs of weight left that I can pack in it… The problem is I have 27 lbs of clothes and shoes that I am wearing for the next couple of weeks that need to go in this case!!! What the heck!!
Cripes on a crumpet how the frick am I supposed to make that happen?! I know I can do amazing awesome things but even I cannot make 27 lbs weigh 9 lbs.
I have a lot of lovely well meaning friends and family on Facebook who tell me to use those space saving bags to make more room… I wish the problem space but it is weight, I could cram a whole bunch more shit in those mothers, there is plenty of space!!! But if a suitcase is anything over 50 lbs, even by just one ounce I will be charged excess luggage of $125. The airlines are robbers when it comes to luggage and if you read my last post you already know I was robbed TWICE just recently so I am trying to avoid getting screwed in the arse again!!!
Oh also I cannot buy anymore suitcases, I already have 8 and that is the maximum the airline will let me have!!
So 27 lbs of clothes and shoes, 9 lbs of availability left tell me what does this fun loving, slightly quirky, batshit crazy self confessed nympho go and do??
I only went fucking shopping… I am not shitting you, I really did!! I bought a pair of shoes, a pair of boots, a sweater, a jacket, a winter vest and some pants…what the fuck!! What the hell is wrong with me?! I know, I KNOW…. Hello my name is JAD and I am addicted to shopping!!! UGH!!
So at the moment I am in Lake Charles gambling “see the addicted trend here” but once I get home I am going to have to go through ALL 8 of my suitcases, decided what is really important and take out anything I have not worn for the last 12 months!!
I kind of sort of also decided that I am going to have one last shopping splurge at Burlington Coat factory (my favorite store). I just know if I do not I will regret it and I will always think about it. They just do not have these stores in Australia, I am going to miss the clothes and shoes shopping SO much. One last splurge, that is all…. Then I am going to pay the freaking USPS the sum of almost $300 fucking dollars to ship the stuff to Australia…
When will I ever learn…. My name is Jad and I am addicted to shopping!!!
Oh…If you see on the news about some batshit crazy woman at Dallas airport using a “Harry Potter” magic wand on her suitcases trying to make them weight less…That would be me!!
