Too Busy!

We're leaving for Albany in two days for my Aunt Michele's wedding. Annabelle's going to be a flower girl and she is super excited.

But I've got about 400 million things that I need to do before we leave. Do you have any idea how much crap we have to pack for an overnight trip? All the bathroom stuff; shampoo, conditioner, curling irons, hairspray, deodorant, toothpaste and brushes and hair pretties, etc, etc, etc,

Then there are multiple outfits. Casual stuff for Saturday morning/afternoon, mildly dressy for the rehearsal and dinner afterwards (which is at a museum), then our fancier outfits for the day of the actual wedding and comfy clothes for the 5 hour drive home.

The we need things to do in the car for that 5 hour trip for the 4 year old. Videos and books and crayons and games. Lots of snacks and the camera and video camera and can't forget the potty seat. Pooh Bear and all of his stuff needs to be packed too. Does anyone else have to pack a bag for a stuffed animal? I'm tired already and we haven't even started yet!

Mark has to travel to Rome on Friday (Rome, NY not Rome Rome) which is about 3 hours east of us. He's thinking of just staying the night in Rome since we have to pass right on by there to get to Albany anyway. So I will have to pack the suitcase and car and child all by myself. Now I usually do all of that anyways, but at least he's there to do the heavy lifting.

I know we'll have a fun time though and I'll take a bazillion pictures. So just be prepared to see us all, dressed up and looking fantastic on Monday:)


  1. I love trips and hate them. Cause all those clothes that you pack, will eventually make it back home to be washed.

    Have a great time, cant wait to see the "dressy" photos.

  2. I'm completely with you there! I hate the cleaning up parts after vacation. This ones extra hectic because we have a really short turn around before we leave for Disney, only 4 days. So everything must be washed and repacked with all of the other stuff we need in Florida.
