Phoenix Airport

Last year you may remember that I was stopped by security for a small matter about brie in the water bottle :)
This year it was the stevia (strange white powder) (it's a natural sugar substitute)(from Trader Joes).
Neither time they took it away. BUT there is a new rule (well, new to me) . You can only carry on one bag plus one personal item (like a purse). I had my (very full) Backpack, my purse and my computer bag. I had to consolidate the computer bag and the purse. Right at the check in desk. How embarrassing. I think that the carry on storage space in the airplanes is getting too full because no on likes to pay the fee to check their bags. Anyway my carry on is once again completely full -- and the computer bag is stuffed too. And I don't think that I have enough snacks. I have some dried mangoes, a handfull of trail mix and a box of Good and Plentys . I think that I'm going to have to make the trek to the other end of the terminal to have a Cinnabun. (i seem to have lost a few pounds here, so I can indulge) I was hoping for a Starbucks too but there doesn't seem to be one.
AND I can't seem to find an electrical outlet, so my computer will die soon. Sheesh, I ask a lot, don't I?????

Just get home safely :-)

Travel is a beach these days. I think you can get Stevia at Noah's.
