If you ever peek into my purse, you'll see all sorts of pouches inside. I use different pouches to store things by category: all my checkbooks and credit cards go in one pouch, my writing supplies and device chargers in another, my makeup and toiletries in yet another.

“Mommy, mommy!” Grace chirped as she walked in to the hotel room with her Dad. “Look what I bought you!” She waves a card in the air. Despite the fog in my brain, I smile. “Don't come too close, honey,” I say. Having the flu while on vacation sucks big time. I don't want it to spread to her.
