Things I Forgot While Traveling
So I went out of town a couple of weeks ago. Of course, there’s always that one or several things you forget on your trip that you didn’t want to forget. I try to avoid going to the store while vacationing especially knowing I already have it, but I needed it then. I was only going to be gone for a couple of days so I didn’t even bother to make a big deal and go. It’s just a matter of the fact I forgot these few things I needed!
So I’m driving down the highway and I realize the sun is beaming in my face and oh wait, I don’t have my sunglasses. I had just purchased some black aviators that were hard to say no to in the store. I was so mad at myself. I wanted to show those bad boys off. I tried to remind myself to grab my sunglasses, but of course, I still forgot them! I knew the exact place I left them in my car and everything! If you’re not traveling in your car, be sure you grab your sunglasses first!!
Ok ladies, if you’re like me and shower with a shower cap then this hurts you! This is an item I try not to ever forget. Sometimes the hotel may have some inside the room by the sink or you ask for one. Well this time, I was just out of luck. Luckily I had my bonnet, but my bonnet is satin and I didn’t want to get it wet. On the other hand, I didn’t want to get my hair wet either so I had to shower with just my bonnet on and I was so sad and had to add yet another forgetful item on my list!
Hotel cable, BLAH. So yea, I brought my firestick along with me so I can still watch my shows like Insecure (it was the last episode). Plus, I and my sister was watching 13 Reasons Why and we had like three more episodes to go! It took me like an hour or two to get my firestick to connect to the hotel’s wifi. I asked the front desk if they had any leftover HDMI cords that guest leftover and of course nun! So, he told me to try to go around the wifi connection and connect with a code. I went and grabbed something to eat and came back and BAM! I didn’t need a code it just connected automatically. BS RIGHT?? So, instead of going through all the trouble the next time I decided to keep an HDMI cord with me when I travel so I can just connect from my laptop to the tv.
This trip was just a getaway trip. I didn’t go far from home. Just to Nashville. I also can’t believe I traveled during a pandemic. I needed to just take a breather. With everything going on in the world and also in my personal life, a trip was well needed to balance out everything. No worries, I had my Lysol spray and wipes to wipe down my room like I did before COVID took over the world. My sister and I ordered all of our food to go and chill in the room. This trip was definitely a “just- because” trip and well worth it as well! If you’re traveling anytime this year, please be cautious and safe!
Love, Gayla 💕
