I’m trying to get myself ready to leave for a conference which means packing myself and my kids as they’ll be with their grandparents while I’m gone. (Notice that The Husband is really the one who benefits-three nights alone. No wonder he’s in no rush to take vacation.)
Anyway, I began to focus on all of this, um, this morning. It’s been an insane two weeks of other responsibilities so I just haven’t had a spare second to do my usual list making and preparing. And of course, the kids, sensing I’m on the way out, are Needy Needersons, following me all around the house.
I can’t blame them and I’m doing my best not to yell at them. After all, I’ll miss them too. But it’s been a pretty hilarious comedy of errors around here this morning and I’m pretty sure I packed one actual outfit for the weekend.
So, if you see me wandering the streets of NYC in a daze with no shoes, it’s because the relentless schedule I’ve been keeping and am about to embark on have finally gotten the best of me.
Oh well, at least there will be cupcakes.
