Slacking and Packing

I have been completely slacking on blog posts - and I have plenty of excuses but the best one being I am super busy at work and on top of that we are getting ready to go on vacation.  So needless to say my spare time (whatever the heck that is) is spent packing for our family, because in case you didn't know, they aren't very good at it. 

Bia started packing last week.  Her backpack includes a large entourage of lovies and blankies and random crap toys.  Then there is Chatty whose only real concern is that we remember her I-POD Touch (assuming she isn't grounded from it again before Saturday), bathing suit and goggles.  Priorities people!  Plus she figures mom will take care of it.  Then there is Mr. ESPN who only has to pull out his clothes.  I asked him nicely to pull them out his clothes this week.  He said he would do that on Friday.  Our flight leaves at the crack of dawn Sat so I may or may not forget to pack his stuff!
Anyway we are all looking forward to going back here:

It has been far too long since we have been back as a family - 2 years!  I am not sure who is more excited - Bia, Chatty, Mr. ESPN or me?!  I can already hear the waves crashing against the shore ...

So sorry I'll miss you at the airport! If I did still volunteer I could come up there and have lunch, dinner or breakfast with you guys because I had a security pass.

Have fun! Good luck with the packing and I hope the crap doesn't get in the way (and you make it back with all the crap-or not).

Tell me about slacking!

Ugh! My husband is the same way. I run around doing everything else and then he throws some clothes in a bag right before we leave.

Enjoy your vacation at the beach. It sounds wonderful!
