I'm actually proud of myself. I packed for an overnight trip for four people in under 30 minutes yesterday! And didn't forget anything except my pjs.
I decided yesterday afternoon that we'd go visit Nokomi since Chris wasn't home and Alexa has been begging to see her. We got home a little before noon from our carseat appointment. I ran and packed while the twins were asleep in the car. Of course they woke up when I loaded the car so I brought them inside and got them all fed and then back into the car.
We arrived shortly after 3 with a few stops along the way. Grocery store - to pick up dinner for the night and McD's for lunch. Everyone (myself excluded of course) napped in the car.
Jake went straight to Nokomi. Liz didn't want anything to do with anyone besides me. And she totally freaked out about the dogs again.
She did finally adjust and would let them at least look at her without crying. But she still didn't want anyone else to hold her! And anytime I left the room she'd scream...or if on the floor try to follow.
I did get to see my sister Dyani and her little boy Blake (who isn't really so little anymore!). And visit my brother and his girlfriend. That's always nice. But I was more than ready to get packed and get home!
And it was a long trip. Lots of traffic and construction made for some long waits - a 90 min trip took about 2.5 hours. I'm just glad I didn't fall asleep in the car. And now we are somewhat on schedule with the twins already in bed...and Alexa hopefully soon.
