Okay, so the comic strip "Baby Blues" is just about ALWAYS an echo of my life. But, check out this link if you want to know what we're doing around here this week. The day this one was originally published, I was out of town. J. clipped it and taped it above my computer. The day previous and the two following on the archive are along the same theme, and almost as funny.
We are not light packers in this house -- I wasn't raised to be one. We used to take the station wagon filled up with a car top carrier as well.
I'm actually feeling like I should be doing more to prepare to pack -- so far it's just been laundry city. But so much of what we need to take is in constant use around here, (blankies, towels, bottles, sippy cups) I don't feel like I can pack quite yet. When I was younger, I always knew it was beach time when we went to the grocery store and stocked up on the car snacks -- the only time we got the pick a mix candy (root beer barrels and Bit O Honeys). I've been feeling an urge to go to Target for snacks and toiletries, even though we have enough sunscreen to whitewash a mile of fence around here already.
So, what are you doing for vacation this year, and what will it take to get YOU prepared?
