Losing My Mind: CHECK.

Status: Beating myself up for being such a procrastinator...

Two days and counting....and I will be F-R-E-E!!!!

Okay, so it's sorta more like three days, but I leave Thursday at noon, so close enough.
Did the grocery shopping this morning, Hubby has all the food he needs. Check. Made sure all the baby's clothes are washed, and his needs like diapers, wipes, food, etc. are stocked. Check. Typed up his schedule. Check.

Now I just need to bake a cake for my daughter's church activity tonight, back up all my files to my thumb drive, (yes, I still call it a thumb drive, shut up) wash all the clothes we need for the trip, schedule an oil change for Thurs. morning (I'm overdue by about 800 miles) pay some bills, make phone calls, stay on my diet, start packing, type up the menu plan, pick up the kids, take them to soccer, take them to cubs and church...

I'm stopping there. One thing at a time. I'm going to BREATHE now. I can't wait until school's out. Then we'll just have sports to keep the kids busy. We will spend long hours outside, and just have some fun. I am looking forward to the less hectic pace of summer.

I got some writing in last night--it was a total fluke. Hubby wanted to watch tennis, and I was playing around on the computer in the office next door, and I opened one of my files and worked on my story. I got quite a bit in, by 9:30. Go me!

Now I need to bake that cake. Gotta make hay while the baby sleeps!

WTG on the writing.

Sounds like you have all the ducks in a row for leaving. Don't wear yourself out before the trip!

When you get here I think I'll force you to sit down and stand over you with a timer and see how long you last. :-) THAT might break you in to a more sane pace. :-)

lol Mom

You are so good to get some words in.

You have a lot going on but you sound organized! :)
