I remember, back when I was employed and had vacation days, that the week immediately before you took time off was a bit crazier as you prepped for being away. Being a SAHM, it turns out, is no different.
I’m racing against time and my various to-do lists before the kids and I leave for Chicago on Wednesday morning. First, there’s the quilts. I thought it was a ridiculous goal when I set it last week, but I just might do it: finish all of the machine-sewn parts of all three quilts before I leave!
But lest I get too cocky, there are about a hundred other things competing for the less-than-48-hours before my flight. First, there’s the gift basket that the HDYDI moms decided to contribute to the NOMOTC Convention’s silent auction. Nearly forgot all about it, had to run to Babies R Us for the 2nd time this weekend (and Barnes & Noble, and iParty, and Staples) to get it all together.
The first trip to BRU was for more gates, to block off the stairs. The kids aren’t thrilled about that one.
Oh, and did I mention that I have to PACK?! For a week-and-a-half trip with two babies? To three different locations? Some without cribs or high chairs? Oh my lord… I feel faint. Gotta go… 🙂
