Preping for FkO...

The girls were absolute little hellions today. I'm putting it down to all the sugar in their Easter Baskets. So I can't complain too much as it was self-inflicted.
So the lack of yelling and sulking at bedtime was a total surprise.

Right now I am taking a break from packing for the trip.
My packing is pretty much done. All I need are four pairs of socks and my toiletries that can't go in 'till the morning.
But for the girls... How many outfits do I need? how many pants are going to end up wet? How many socks are going to be lost? What shirt is going to be adamantly refused? ("But I hate that shirt!" "Why?" "'cause I don't love it!" "Funny, I couldn't get you out of it last week.")

And I have to mend Roper's jeans. If I can find the piece of denim I keep for this very reason.

And the toys and books... which ones, how many, what to pack them in. I'll tackle that tomorrow.

Hope to see some of you soon,

GHR
