Getting All of My Ducks in A Row


I mentioned last week that I was mentally preparing myself for winter break.

Well, I have had one kid home all day today. He has been helping me get laundry washed and folded so we can all begin packing our bags to head out to Chicago for the holiday.

Tomorrow around noon, we will be pulling The Girl out of school, getting the truck loaded up, and heading to the airport to wait for the arrival of The Man's son. Then we're off!
God and weather willing, we will check in to our hotel sometime around 9 pm and get nestled in for a
Big Fat Family Christmas.

In order for this all to go smoothly and according to plan, I need to get my but in gear.
The dog sitter comes tomorrow afternoon. So in addition to having to get laundry washed for myself and my kiddos, I must vacuum, clean the bathroom and kitchen, wash the floors, and have the house entertaining condition. I would hate for the dog sitter to see how messy we are!

I promise to be back in the morning for Post-It Note Tuesday!
I will also be tweeting my way through the drive!

Good luck! Whenever I leave for a vacation I have to leave a very clean house and I don't have a dogwatcher. The whole way home you will be thinking Ahhhh I am returning home to a very clean house!
Have a great holiday

I'm amazed that children are in school at all this week... is it just an AZ thing that students get two full weeks off from school?
