Packing for vacation

We are leaving tomorrow for vacation for the week. Why is it that I get stuck packing for EVERYONE? The big girls pack themselves, but I have to make a list for them. Chris packs himself......and that is it. When was it my job to pack myself, Katie, Tommy, food, sheets, pillows, blow up beds, toys, movies, bikes, scooters, helmets, diapers, wipes and everything else that comes with going away for a week!

Last weekend we spent one night in a hotel after my BIL's wedding. I packed my make up bag......with no makeup! I packed the kids stuff......but no toys. How did I do that? Maybe because I was busy getting everyone ready. Chris was the Best Man and the 2 little ones were in the wedding. I was rushing around all day. Trying to send the groom a text message to stay sober (he is 25 and wanted to go to a strip club hours BEFORE the wedding!), get everyone dressed and then pack past minute stuff the GROOM forgot! UGH!

I am realizing I have to become Supermom at least once a week. I wish someone would appreciate it!

Speaking of the wedding. Here are a few pictures of them. I guess it was worth all the hassle in the end!

good job on your first post. I was in the same boat, so I started a blog not too long ago, and am finally getting the hang of things around the blogger life. You will get the hang of it soon, and im sure some moms will be stalking your blog in no time.
