And now? What am I doing now? Packing or planning on packing. We are leaving for a trip soon- a big trip. And we are excited, but it seems some people have little faith in me getting us packed. The husband takes care of himself and might only ask me a question or two. And all the kids really will get themselves packed, some with more help from me than others, and some of the kids might even help pack up me and the baby.
But, it works out. It always does. However, it seems a few of my friends are doubting I will pull it off.
They know I thrive on procrastination.
The thrill of the last minute.
But, I take no offense that they worry and wonder if I will pull it off. They are my close friends and even some of my family. They know me too well.
So, you know what I am doing tomorrow, with our trip coming up quick?
Yep, hitting the beach.
Where else would I be?
What about you?
How do you pack?
Incidentally, just so you know there is a method to my madness.
How would I pack everything a week in advance?
What would we wear in the mean time?
Do people own weeks and weeks worth of underwear and clothing?
I don't. I like to make sure all my clothes are clean and laid out in front of me.
That's how this mama packs.
