Gah! In no way was I implying you're an old codger!

Bonus: the time-share has a washer and dryer. Just in case...
I tend to start packing a week before we make a planned trip...and it takes two weeks to unpack once back.

The first thing I put in the suitcase is a lightweight nylon gym bag that folds flat.

I always seem to come home with twice as much stuff as I start with!

That's okay sweetie, I got a good chuckle out of it! Besides, you'll be an old codger too someday!

Amazon.com: ROUND STOOL Bath Bench Adjustable Height, Lightweight Shower Bench with Non-slip Seat, White: Health & Personal Care

Fits in a shower perfectly and is adjustable. Perfect. I had one and like an idiot gave it away. Even fits in a tub. I had Spike put a grab bar just outside the tub/shower so I could hold on instead of standing on one foot while stepping outside. Much safer and I feel more secure.

I never pack anything until the day before we leave..even on a very long trip. If I do, I always forget what I've already packed. All my underwear is stuffed into a zipper net laundry bag, as I hate digging through a stuffed suitcase for those kinds of things.

I like that shower stool Addie. I have a corner seat in my shower, but my big rear doesn't fit. That stool is small, but has "hangover" room.

I kick myself every time I go into the shower. Now if my hip starts to hurt, I just sit on the edge of the tub. Winthrop gave me a wide seat with a back. Way to big for the tub. What were they thinking? They didn't even measured the width of the tub before they sent it to me. I tossed out the back and now let the large packages of toilet paper sit on it. May as well get some use out of it.

I like that stool too, Addie. So far we don't need one, but we'll definitely keep it in mind, especially if DH's parents visit.

I don't really need one either Dawg but stuff happens when you least expect it. A year ago when I broke my foot, I sure wished I had one. The metal step stool in the shower was interesting.

True. I've had a broken foot/ankle and probably could have used one.
