Sometimes I think it takes more work preparing to go on a trip than necessary. Ella and I are heading to Disney for 5 days WITHOUT Hunter and Gracie. Ella and her dance company will be performing in Downtown Disney as well as being a part of a once in a lifetime opportunity….a workshop with Disney Cast Members!!!! How exciting! But I am already exhausted!
It takes a lot of preparation when leaving 2 people behind. I have to make sure I have things for Hunter’s lunch-that in itself is a chore. I must have their schedules all typed out for my mother-in-law so she knows when football practice is, dance, what time to get to the bus, preschool routine, etc. And since they will be staying at her house, I have to pack for them too! But if I forget anything, they are just one street over and they can come here and get it. But for the most part, I am packing for them to stay away from home.
In addition to packing for all of us, I need to make sure all the house stuff is finished so I can at least come home to a somewhat clean house-ha! When we return, it will be 2 days before Easter AND Ella’s birthday. So you know what that means….Easter stuff bought and birthday gifts wrapped.
I am looking forward to sitting on the plane Monday morning and not worrying about anything. I am looking forward to having some time alone with Ella. I have some guilt leaving the other 2 behind but I am sure they will each have their time alone with me. But until then….
Hi Ho Hi Ho It’s Off to Pack I Go…..
