By this time next week, we will be on the road. The plan is to leave about 4am. It's going to take us approximately 15 hours to get to my sister's house in Indio. It's close to Palm Springs. IN THE DESERT. IN JUNE. I am not a lover of the heat, this should be interesting. We will be there for until early Monday when we will set out for Orange County and my grandma/aunt's house. We will ALL stay there until I leave to go to Eric's on Thursday night and then I fly home on Saturday. And by ALL I mean: me & my 2 kids, my mom, my sister & her 2 kids, my other sister and her 2 kids and then of course my grandma & aunt. It's a 3 bedroom house. It's going to be an adventure. Plus, Eric is going to come stay too from Tuesday night through Thursday. CRAZY! But fun I'm sure. I'm really looking forward to it.
To-Do-List status: The kids have almost all of their laundry done. All they have left to do is their white clothes, which I still do for them. After having them try it and ending up with clothes that either smelled very strongly of bleach or the clothes they were wearing getting ruined when bleach got splashed on them, I decided it would be ok to take that back from them. We went through their dressers and closets last night and pulled out all the fall/winter clothes to go for donation. I did the same with my closet, but mine just go in a box to be pulled out after summer. I vacuumed the family room with my new vacuum and am in love with it. It is a Hoover Self-Propelled Bagged WindTunnel. I haven't had a vacuum with a bag in a long time, but this one uses a Hepa Filtration bag and has filters all over it, so I'm ok with it. I used almost all of the attachments just in the family room and on the stairs leading to to the family room. I LOVE IT. It has so much suction. Did I mention how much I love it? I wanted to get the living room done last night, but by the time we got home from Karate I was ready to climb into bed.
That's all for now. Time to get to work.
