The problem with going home a week before I skip the country…

…Is that I have to decide in advance what I want to bring with me, when I still can’t even decide what shoes I should take. So I end up way overpacking for going home, just so I have options to chose from when I’m only intending to bring a single carry-on to go to China. Oh well, considering that ¾ of what I own was made in China to begin with, if I need something I guess I can just buy it there.
