I have been a bad blogger lately! Just not online as much as I once was I guess. Darn kids are cutting into my internet time! Just kidding, I love my kids. Well most of the time. Then there are the days where I want to string them up by their toes but that never really happens. But that's not the point. The point is, um, well, I forgot what my point was. Sorry about that. Anyway.
Today is the beginning of a three day weekend, Jeff has Monday off which is great since the kids and I are leaving for our big adventure later in the week. Yes I am insane. Bright and early one morning in the near future, I will leave for LAX. There we will pick up my cousin who is flying in from Florida (also insane) and we will head for the great Northwest to see family. Then after we've visited for a while we'll turn around and do it again in reverse, leaving my poor cousin at the airport to fly home to Florida. Poor girl!
I am making my lists and checking rechecking to make sure I have everything we need for this trip. I have done the trip many times from here to my family (yes we have established already that I am insane.) However, this will be my first trip with such a young baby, not to mention with two kids, as well as my first trip that has to be timed exactly for a flight home for Connie. Usually we just go whenever and come back whenever. My biggest fear though is this is our first trip with a potty trained Amelia. In the past when I've done this trip I would stop every 2-3 hours, change diapers, I'd go to the bathroom, we'd eat some food and get back on the road. This usually takes me about 15 minutes. I don't think I'll be able to drive at my normal pace with minimal stops this time.
Oh well at least we'll have a DVD player this trip! That totally cancels out the whole stopping to let a 3 year old pee every 10 minutes right??
