Full Vacation Mode


In two days we leave on our vacation to the Central Coast. So as of today I am in full vacation mode or more plainly: crazy running around, endless washing of clothes, packing like I'll be gone a month mode.

I am so ready to hit the road I can taste it. Long walks on the beach await and I can't get there soon enough.

When I used to have to  pack all my older kids suitcases I literally would start a week ahead and do one a day. The child that was packed first always had to wear some old strange things because all their newer stuff was sealed tight in their suitcase. My hubby packs right before we leave and I don't know how he does that but I guess if you only have yourself to pack for, what's the rush?

I love how there is no internet or cell phone service in the campground. My kids are unplugged and outside. It is good for them. We will play cards and watch the occasional movie but mostly we will be outside playing.

So if any further posts are incoherent then it is because my mind is in a million places and so am I. As much as you plan ahead there always seems to be a lot of work to take a vacation.
