Here We Go

In approximately 5 hours I will find myself as a passenger in the mini-van bound for MD. It's that time of year...where we have decided (at the very last minute) to make the 8 hour trek to visit my husbands mothers side of the family. (And by very last minute I mean we remained undecided until about 3 hours ago)

We got home tonight at about 9:30, after having spent some quality time with my dear grandma and then mall shopping for my laptop computer, which I am not able to use yet by the way--but it is frikkin sweet regardless.

Anyway... 9:30 is way to late to BEGIN post Christmas cleaning, laundry, and packing. I don't care how what you say.

So now, here I am at 2:20, waiting to put that last load of laundry in the dryer...because yes folks...I won't leave on a trip without my house being clean. Sorry, I AM that lame.

Now if I can only survive the packing of the mini-van. (My husband is the sort who was probably never good at Tetris--I however, am a champ)

P.S. I am totally freaked out that I bought an Apple computer and not a Dell. I am not sure how to navigate the Apple...and I started to have a panic attack earlier. But that is typical of me when confronted with something alien. I wish I could pinpoint the moment in time that I became such a fraidy cat and then go back and skip over that part.

Have fun and be careful on the drive. (And I'm the same way about leaving my house clean!)

You will love your Apple...once you get used to it, you will wonder how you got by without it! :)
And my husband has finally accepted that I too have to have the house spotless before leaving. Even for just one night. He has gotten good at tidying with me without my even asking! What a stud!

Have fun on your trip! I have to leave my house clean before a trip so, I know what you mean.

A new lap-top - is there a better present? You've crossed over to the dark side - my sister and father have Apples and scorn everyone else (read: me) who have PCs. Now you get to be in the exclusive Apple-snob group - will you still visit my blog every once in a while, though you know it is written on a lowly HP?

Have a safe trip.

oh, have a great great trip. I cannot leave my house until it is cleaned and ordered, even to go to church, so I totally know what you mean.

ps: I'm a Tetris champ too!
