Preparations

I am in the process of doing major housecleaning and laundry in preparation for being gone from my home for a week. I totally do not want to come home to a dirty house! So, I have been scrubbing and picking up and trying to get everything done by Friday night. We are packing up the stealth van and headed to Florida on Saturday. Gonna go visit the family and leave The Girl there for the summer. We are also planning to hit Busch Gardens one day! We think the Boys will love seeing all of the animals. And DH wants to ride many many roller coasters. I don't know if my body is up to riding coasters ths summer. I am probably skipping that thrill.

The fact that DH actually gets a week off of work is amazing! I just can't wait to be in FL and have someone help watch the kids so I can sleep in! And go out..... with no friends or family in this area and no money for babysitters, we have not been out without the kids since last November when our moms watched the kids! I am ready for a break. Love the kids but.....

I will be taking plenty of pics and video while we are in FL. Both at Busch Gardens and just around. It will be interesting to see how the kids do in different surroundings. We have not been to visit since last year. A year can make a lot of difference for kids!

Anyway, I am busy busy busy today. I will, hopefully, be back later with another post but for now.... hehe... wish me luck cleaning! LOL

We went to Florida two years ago - it was wonderful. While there, we went to Bush Gardens and had a great time, though I have to say I don't think it was any better than a Six Flags. Kind of run down. But the kids didn't notice - they loved it. And I had fun on the roller coasters!

Can't wait for you to get here! I know the grandmothers will be glad to relieve you of the kids, at least for a little while. And I can't wait to have Jenna to myself for a while..... I miss you all, but, you know how much I miss my Jenna!

Woman! You so CANNOT go to Busch Gardens and not do the rides! Like, WTH!!!

Carpe diem, sweets. Don't look back and sigh, thinking that you should have been there and done that, when you were there to begin with!!!

I will so come down there and go loco on your crazy rear if you don't live your trip to that amusement park to the limits!

I am so glad you guys are getting away for a while. You definitely need a break.

Preparing for a trip is always such work. I too like for the house to be semi clean when I return and making sure you have everything.

Have fun and happy packing.

ARGH! I'll miss you! With the Great Sister-in-law Migration, there's just NO way. Just my luck!

Don't spoil Jenna TOO much, Nana.
