There's something so hard about getting ready to go on vacation.

Maybe it's the packing for 5 people?

Maybe it's the fact that Oswald is working a lot to get ready to be gone for a week?

Maybe it's the crazy notion that I love to have a clean house when I come home from vacation, making me have to clean BEFORE I leave?

Maybe it's the fact that I have tons of other things I need to take care of before I go?

I don't exactly know what it is, but I do know that I have a list a mile long of things that need to get done before we drive 5 hours to stay for 3 days get back in the car to drive 8 hours to stay for 7 days to drive 5 hours back home. Yep. We're making a triangle out of this trip. Visiting lots of family back "home" in North Carolina. (If I come back even more southern than I already am, ya'll will know why)

Things topping my to-do list:

  • bathrooms
  • laundry
  • dishes
  • vacuum
  • pack
On top of that, I still have three kids at home to take care of, I need to buy snacks for the road, and new games for them to play since we'll be in our car (with no DVD player) for a total of 18 hours! Crazy! Good thing my kids are awesome travelers!

Wish me luck packing and traveling!! I bet I'll need a vacation from my vacation!


  1. Please tell me you will be making a visit to Greensboro on your NC trip! Would love to see you guys and hang out!

  2. Natalie, we were in High Point, but all we did was visit with family. We saw Oswald's grandparents. No time for anything else. It was super quick and now we're already in Florida. Maybe the next time we're there it will be for longer?
