This handy dandy backpack I got from Babies r us. It is full and a heavy Mother! It has my laptop, video camera, camera, all of the connector thingies plus my paperwork. And some reading material, make up and a change of clothes just in case. I carried it on the plane and it was so packed it would not go under the seat. They were going to make me check it but then just let me take the laptop out and hold it. Then it fit under the seat and the bag was much ighter. We deplaned onto the tar mat in Chicago. 16 degrees and snow! I felt bad for my Mom so I offered to take her carry on for her, small rolling bag, plus my 5 ton pound backpack. I made it in before them ans was still holding my laptop in my arms. As we came off the escalator..... You guessed it! I ate it huge. My Moms rolling bag would not come off an I could feel the laptop slipping. All I could think of was don't let it hit the floor. Then the 5 ton backpack had me way off balance. I fell on my knees scattering everything. Of course there were tons of people behind me including my Mom. So of course I went down! (I am laughing while I type this) Think 20 car pile up. Those poor people behind me had no where to go but down. I am okay but was laughing so hard I was crying! Sorry no photos!
The last photo is me having a well deserved beer! Yummy!
