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!
