Denial & Panic

Well, I did it again.  I completely ignored the fact that we're leaving for vacation....until now, the very last minute.  I do this with overwhelming tasks.  And believe me, trying to get this house straightened, get packed, and get all of us on an airplane (at 5:30 AM no less) is overwhelming.

The good news is that we're going here again.  

The bad news is that I'll probably be packing dirty clothes because I won't be able to get everything done in time.  They have a washer there...

I still wonder - what if I just flat refuse to pack?  Okay - I'll do ONE suitcase for this family of 6.  
Toothbrushes, swimsuits, 2 pair shorts, 2 tshirts, 1 pair of jeans, flip flops, socks, undies, tennies, jacket, and jammies for each person.  Do you think I could fit it all?  Hmmm...that's 84 items.  Doubtful.

Turns out that a family with 6 people in it is...a big family.

I even planned to have all sorts of enlightening and entertaining posts scheduled to go up while I'm away.  It just ain't happening.  Forgive me?  Come back to see me when I get back?  I promise to provide all sorts of hints and tips about how to be rich, famous, happy, and skinny.  


PS.  It's driving me crazy that my last post was titled "Here's to Daddy's".  I know it should be Daddies.  But I'm not gonna take the time to go change it now.

I'm celebrating Father's Day next Sunday. My oldest son got married this Saturday, so I'm taking creative liscense and changing my calendar. I've done that on my birthday before,too. When the boys are too contentious on my birthday, and there's no happiness and laughter in sight, I change the day of the week to celebrate. Oh, by the way, since I'm still in super-mom-my-son-is-getting-married energy surge (similar to nesting with pregnancies), I'm almost packed today for our vacation on Saturday! LOL Have a blessed VACATION
