What I’ve Done

In the last four days I

Prepared for Friday’s homeschool group craft
Sent multiple emails about our Girl Scout meeting next week
Got the papers signed officially appointing me the Girl Scout leader
coordinated 2 families worth of breakfast food to be delivered to our hotel
cleaned all our bathrooms
mopped all the bare floors
talked to Bip’s doctor to renew his prescription
roasted pumpkin seeds
sent in the paperwork for a Girl Scout scholarship
took down the Halloween decorations
arranged transportation with the Disney Magical Express
made new covers for the children’s autograph books
wrote an article for the Homeschool Classroom
found our Vacation Club cards
washed 3 loads of laundry
packed almost everything
printed out luggage tags and address labels

I did not do any school.

I still need to

move our CDs with pictures to the fire safe box.
buy and pack snacks, ponchos and blister pads (I delegated that to Philip)
type up our daily itineraries
order Pumpkin new folklorico shoes
clean the kitchen and entryway
call my friend Niki
pack our carry-ons

We’re not leaving until Saturday morning, so I feel pretty good about what’s left of my list.  I’m a little annoyed with myself because so much of it could have been done weeks or even months ago. I got really overwhelmed trying to plan this trip, so I put it off til the very last second.  Do you ever do that?  I was like a little kid with my hands over my ears, saying “nah nah nah nah, I can’t hear a word you’re saying.”  Which is not really the way to plan a trip.  But what’s done is done and we’ll be fine.  We’re going to have a great vacation with mild weather and low-ish crowds.  Boo may have to wash some dishes to help pay for admission tickets now that he has to pay full adult fare and Bip needs a ticket now, too, but that’s ok.

Alright already, I need to get off the computer and get busy!

More Mac and Cheese, please!

  • Okay, you are so organized. I pack the night before and look at brochures when we arrive. Maybe I should take a few notes for our next vacation.

  • Oh, I am so jealous! I had no idea you were going to Disney this week! My SIL is down there right now, and I wished I could be with her. You sound so busy, but organized busy. Are you driving or flying? I know you will have a wonderful time. There is no way to NOT have a nice time at Disney! Be sure to save up some good tips for us! And LOTS of pictures!
