Road Trip!

This is a whirlwind day. I’ve got lists upon lists – to-do, to-buy, to-clean, to-pack… It’s tiring just thinking about it. Everything is underway, so I’m hoping to be finished and get to bed early tonight. The alarm goes off super-early tomorrow!

I’m planning to leave around 4:00 a.m., and praying that both kids will sleep for a few of those predawn hours and allow me to cover some decent miles in an uninterrupted stretch. Then I figure that even with stops to eat, stretch, play, and change diapers or go to the potty, I may still complete the “12 hour drive” in fourteen or fifteen hours. (I know that sounds long, but if you consider that 4:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. is a normal work day for Chris, it sounds little better! That, or else you’ll just have newfound sympathy for my hardworking husband.)

This morning I ran around like a crazy woman. Susannah had her 18-month checkup (at which we discovered that she will NEVER get to turn her carseat around, hehehee! She weighs in at a petite 20 lbs, 8 ozs but stretches out an incredible 32″ tall. She’s a little pink stringbean…) and my friend Misty did me a huuuuuuuuuuge favor by babysitting Jonas. So it was up to Ludlow to drop him off – down to Florence for the checkup – swing by bank & CVS in Erlanger for errands – back up to Ludlow to pick Jonas up – and back home for lunch and naps. Whew!

Well, I hear the buzzer on the dryer so I need to get back to all those to-do lists. Please pray for safe travel & that the kids will be good riders tomorrow!

“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast.”

Ephesians 2:8-9
