Our flight leaves tomorrow morning at the crack of dawn. So, naturally, I haven’t started packing yet! But I do have lists. Oh boy, do I have lists. I have lists of lists. They haven’t made it to spreadsheet form yet, but the day is young. I’ve got a packing list for the kids, a packing list for me and M, a packing list for our carry-on. A list for groceries. A master to-do list. A list for the dog, who is being dropped off at a friend’s house. Said friend is really saving me, since my last-minute call to the kennel yielded a new response: they were full until Monday. But we leave Saturday. Doh! Thankfully, this friend thought it would be fun to have a dog for the weekend, so lucky me and lucky Winnie! But, in the meantime, she needs a bath and I need to find her portable crate.
I really need to make an effort not to over-pack. I need to think minimal. Not my strong suit, but I’ll try. Especially with all of the fees the airlines are so eager to charge these days. But we have three tickets and are therefore entitled to 3 checked bags. Thank god our friends are driving and have extra Pack & Plays…
Alright, enough talking. Time for laundry! And packing! And giving the dog a bath! Wohoo!
Oh, and the house we’re renting supposedly has wireless internet access, so I’ll see if I can’t bring a laptop and post updates from the beach. I’ll bring my camera’s USB cable and take pictures of my frosty beverages. It’ll be awesome.
