pack mule

Travis and I are leaving today for NY and VA for a week. We are going with my sister Missy, her husband Roger, and my parents. The trip should be a blast! I am definitely excited to go places I haven't been before. And, a little nervous about leaving my kids for an entire week (and a little excited for some grown up time).

While I love to go on trips I HATE packing! I hate trying to plan what I will wear so far in advance. Especially since the weather can be so different and change so frequently. Here is snippet of last night's packing:

Me: Trav, have you seen that white shirt?

Travis: What white shirt? One of these on the couch?

Me: No, that one I just went and borrowed from Hailee.

Travis: Did you bring it in the house?

Me: Yes. I put it on the table with that Hurley jacket. Will you help me look for it?

Semi-frantic and frustrated searching ensues...

Me: I have no idea where that shirt is! How can I not find it?!

Travis: (walking in from garage with shirt in hand) You mean this shirt that was in the car?

Me: Um, yeah... That would be the one...

I hope this isn't an indicator of what the trip will be like.

At least you weren't wearing the shirt. I've done that before!! Have a wonderful trip. I am very jealous!!

Hey Kristin! Long time, no see! I'm glad I found you again somehow. Your kids are so cute, and I can't wait to sit down and read your blog to find out what you've been up to this last 10 years. I hope all is well!
