Ready, set go.
I'm leaving in the morning for Arkansas. Bright and early. Well, early but not bright.
I spent some time today packing. I'm am queen of the carry-on. I can be gone a week and get everything I need in one bag. (My husband loves me even more for this!) I hate checking bags. Especially when I don't have a direct flight. I'm PARANOID that my luggage won't arrive at my final destination, so once again, I've got everything I need until Saturday in my carry-on. Woohoo!
I'll be home sometime Saturday night.
VBS begins on Monday so I'm going to hit the ground running. Especially since I'm helping with VBS this year. I swore I'd seen the last of those days, but I really had no good reason to say no this year. All of my kids will be there and I have lots of free time during the school year so I decided to give it a go. The perk is that I'm working with my sweet friend, Dana, and another guy who seems super laid back. I'm actually very excited about it.
I'm NOT excited about getting out the door early on those days. My kids have been sleeping until 8:30/9:00AM every day. (All of you guys with toddlers and babies--there IS hope that you can sleep past 6AM again one day). We're going to need to leave a little after 8:30 each morning. Man, I'm thinking that's going to be rough. Maybe John can work on getting them up earlier while I'm gone this week.
Speaking of John. He's working from home most of the week. I'm thankful that his bosses are flexible like that. I'm also thankful for some dear friends who are entertaining my children while John has some meetings. You guys are THE BEST. Thank you!
I debated taking my laptop with me to Arkansas, but decided against it. I'll probably check in a time or two while I'm gone, but then again I may not. I'll see what I feel like.
I'm sad to miss out on a farewell party for Joanne tomorrow. I'm hoping someone blogs about it so I won't feel too left out...hint, hint.
Okay, my 15 minutes are up. I need to try to get some sleep! I actually have to set the alarm clock tonight. I never EVER set an alarm clock. I either get John to wake me up or wake up on my own. I don't even HAVE an alarm clock. I have to use my cell phone!
I hope you all have a great week!
