Ten on Tuesday: Ten Things I Always Bring On Vacaton

Today I'm joining Carole's Ten on Tuesday Prompt: 
1. Steady Shot Camera with Panoramic setting

2. Iphone  (I was the last to join that party)

3. Medications: you'd think I was a pharmacy.
I bring all the what ifs along with me....
but I'm gettting better .....I tell myself
"there's a Walgreens on every corner" 


4. Snacks for the room.  Last trip it was a box of Cliff bars. 
We always eat them up.  We have never come home with leftovers.


5.  Knitting.  Always.  No matter the trip theme 

6. Chargers for 1. and 2. 

7. A watch.  Fireman depends on me to wear a watch. He asks me many times during each trip, What time is it? 
He's usually driving and not able to get at his phone easily for the time feature. 

8. My grandmother's Mass card. It is always in my wallet.

9. Floss, because I'm lost without floss. 

10. Make up....always. 

I added an eleventh ...its the first comment of the day...my own!

I always have knitting with me most places I go, even when it is just to my parents.
I went on an overseas trip with my father about 8 yrs ago and I brought 5 projects with me. We went by boat as I am unable to fly. I finished all but one project.

I'm a flossing fool so floss would be the first thing on my list! DH jokes that when I go to Church I may forget to take my Bible but I will always have floss in my purse!

I always toy with the idea of leaving my phone at home but it really isn't safe to be without one. I have been called by clients when I was Anywhere USA!

Teri said...

You're not the last one to the party -- that would be me. I still don't have an i-anything...

You're funny. That's very much like my list. Only I'd take the vets' numbers, and Sissy's medications are far more important than ours.

Donna said...

I'm a bit crazy with the meds too. I just don't want to feel uncomfortable if I can help it. Floss is a good idea. That and Q-tips should be added to my list as well.

Oh my goodness, my oldest bit his brother on the back when they were little. Oh those were good times.... Love your list, face cream is always on mine, you would think with how much I use I would not have so many wrinkles.
Hugs,
Meredith

ALWAYS my knitting and something to read along the way.

I must be a dinosaur, I have to make an effort to remember to take a phone with me - even around town.

Grace said...

i don't have an i phone or any plans for a smart phone in the near future

I also always take snacks for the room, I'm just too cheap not too! Just can't do those $2.00 (minimum) soft drinks. Sometimes our snacks take up more room than our luggage!

I just got an iphone last week! I'm actually using it more for photos than my camera! I really do love this phone.

Nicole said...

Oops, I forgot to add knitting to my list! I do bring it on trips, but it seems so normal that I forgot to mention it... :)

I also bring snacks, though I usually bring more than we eat, so we bring some home.

Patty said...

Snacks are a must for us too! Swedish fish and goldfish at all times!

Nancy Kay said...

Must have iPhone, charger, and knitting!

Another fun topic/post Kathy! yes on the knitting and the small pharmacy. I've gotten it down to a Gallon Ziplock for road trips, and 2 quart bags for flying. Working on it. YES to the knitting, snacks and iPhone. Personal issue, gotta have chapstick/lip balm. Just gotta ;)
