To Do: Leaving on a Jet Plane

To Do: Leaving on a Jet Plane

I’m going on a quick business trip to Virginia tomorrow and Wednesday. Basically, 10 hours on a plane for 4 hours in meetings. Ugg! I’m trying to plan ahead to make the flights as painless as possible. Here’s what I have to have with me on a flight:

  • Black turtleneck, jeans and flats
  • Pashmina scarf
  • One book and 2 New Yorkers
  • Fancy noise-canceling, in-ear headphones Rob gave me
  • Empty water bottle (to refill in the airports)
  • Food (I’m taking a beet and chicken salad, hummus, pretzel chips, dried pears, mandarin oranges and dark chocolate)
  • Rosebud salve

Am I missing anything? Luckily my flight out isn’t until 11 so I’ll have time to vote at the fire station in the morning.

Speaking of, did anyone else get a taped phone call from Wyclef Jean asking you to vote tomorrow? I love Wyclef and was so shocked! At least I think it was him? He (Oops, that’s from the BEP, not Wyclef) even turned one of Obama’s speeches into a song and music video (thanks, Emily!).

    have a safe trip!
    especially since it is cold/flu season i would save room in your ziplock baggie for a small bottle of instant hand sanitizer. I like to have it on the plane to use after going to the bathroom (you know those door handles aren’t clean!) and before eating.

    I always take a little package of achohol wipes with me (wet ones are good) to make sure that I don’t come home with some kind of bug. Airports are yuck.

    I LOVE Rosebud Salve! I swear by that stuff and have probably half a dozen tins of it floating around my life!

    THANK YOU for that Obama song link – so awesome! I hope things go well for him tomorrow, wish I lived in a state that was ‘in play’, but alas, not for a few more weeks.

    Travel safe!
