No problem! I posted this pic on another thread & it got all kinds of attention. Just wanted to share the love with you all! I did actually get nervous (after I posted it before) about some of the things in the pockets. Luckily, no feminine "stuff" showing.

If you'll notice, I had several empty pockets. I keep NOTHING on the countertops. This would've free'd up a pocket or two.(I'm a germ-a-phobe & I don't like my hairbrushes, toothbrushes or ANYTHING on a hotel countertop.) So, you may have more room if you're not as OCD as me. We won't even talk about the fact that I carry my own sheets, blankets, & pillows.

Glad you're doing better
p.s. I'm a nurse too.

QUESTION?
have any of you used a shower curtain as a privacy screen between the beds and the bathroom? We will be staying at POP and I need to know if I need a shower rod or a tension rod to fit across there because I don't know how wide it is. Any ideas?

I like your shower curtain idea. We are staying at BC and looks like there is no kind of separation between the sink area and the room. The bathroom looks like it could be tight to get changed in.

What a great idea! I think it would be the perfect width for a tension rod. Sept will be our first time to stay at POP, but if it's at all like ASMo, the rod will work! I can't wait to try it. (Not only for privacy, but for kinda keeping the bathroom lights off the beds at night.)

The best thing ever for a sunburn is men's shaving cream with aloe. Just put it on the skin and let it absorb. It sounds crazy but it works. I know due to the fact that most of my family members have red hair and very fair skin.

I see many of you change up your BC pills to alter your period. My tubes are tied & I have no need for BC. Would a gyn give me BC just so I could avoid a vacation period? Would I suffer crazy, hormonal side effects? I'm a total germ-freak & the diva-cup thing is not something I can stomach. (Not trying to offend anyone, it's just not an option for me.)
My husband had a vaso, so I have no need for BC either, but I'm on it because it regulates my AF. So I'd say yep, no problem!

Thanks! I'd never thought about BC until reading this thread. I just have a sneaking suspicion that mean ole bag is gonna show up during our trip! (Who would ever invite her to Disney, anyway?)

As for the BC pills- I asked my Dr. and she would. I had my tubes tied after my twins, because once you start having them 2 at a time for me it was time to STOP that train LOL. Any ways- she said that she would but she was concerned about blood clots. I was a smoker at the time. She wanted me to stop every 2 hours and walk. So I said forget it I would take my chances.

When I travel I am often mommy/coach. So I have to be prepared for just about everything known to man. I love my shoe organizers and tackle boxes...

Ok, now a question for all of you ladies. I got BURNT bad this weekend. I have never burned in my life- I am on HRT now that I had my hysterectomy, but anyways - I had on SPF 30 and I have freakin BLISTERS on my back I am burnt so bad. So give me the magic remedies for that
I use a product called Australian Gold. It is aloe vera with lanocain for the pain. It's a blue colored gel. It feels so good and cool going on. Works great. If you use it several times a day, you probably won't even peel.

Love the thread.

I have my niece french braid my hair all over the night before we leave. Because she braids it so tight, I can actually wash it while it's braided and I don't have to do anything to it the entire time. Talk about convenience!

I don't wear makeup at all so the only essentials I pack are plenty of underclothes, any feminine items and pain medication. I'm on BC too, but in all the years we've been taking trips I've never been on my cycle while on vacation. I think once or twice I was on my last day when we arrived. What's nice is all the walking really helped with cramps and what not. I haven't checked the dates yet but I definitely plan to regulate mine if I will be on it while there.

We've yet to do anything "fancy" or go to an upscale restaurant while on vacation so I don't pack any type of dress clothes or shoes. It's all about comfort for me.
