I know most people pack clothes or toiletries first, I pack lunches for other people. Not because my hubby couldn't handle the job but because I think its is fun! I love figuring out lunch ideas and putting them together - although I hate the clean up. I made each of the girls three days worth of lunches ready, along with labeled bags of non-fridge items to make it one easy chore for Ric. I knew he had a challenge dealing with both girls and their crazy schedules by himself for 2 plus days. Our kids require a two person team to get it all done for sure, sometimes three or four. Of course I did get packed eventually with all the clothes I need and the trip went smoothly even flying standby.
Once I got back from Iowa everything was in full swing and I just never caught up at work or home. Today I can see the light at the end of the tunnel but I'm realistic to know I can't jump into posting everyday. I'm promising myself I'll try again next year and do better about getting on the blog hops so I can keep my writing going and not let reading blogs get away from me. Writing for me is very therapeutic and I do enjoy it so I don't want to stop. Sometimes it just has to be put on the back burner when things are moving along very swiftly but smoothly enough I don't need therapy. This seems to be one of those times, we'll see.
