I am putting Seattle on the list of cities I would like to live in. I found it very nice and family friendly.
It is amazing how much can pile up when you are not around. And then there are all the things that you bring back into the house which you have to try to figure out where you are going to put them or put them back.
Also I need to stock the larder. We need a little of this and that but not a lot of anything. I do need to stop buying ketchup. I keep thinking that I am out and forget that I have another bottle in the cupboard. I think I am going to have a long conversation with the cupboards and the fridge before I go today. Great now I have “I’ve got a little list” from the Mikado running through my head.
I have very little to say about football because I didn’t see any of it this weekend and didn’t read up on it on Monday. I think that the college polls are wacked. I am hearing a lot of screaming about how “tough” the schedule of the various teams are which explains why they are where they are in the polls. I do know that there were some more exciting wins and loses last week within the last minute.
I have a wacky doll running around in my head. I am debating on how to make it. It is sort of a puppet. I do think I am going to take Captain Jack and a Fluzzie on our upcoming trip if I have room.
Caroline gave herself a bad burn on her wrist at school yesterday. It was a blister but it has popped. I put Neosporin and bandaged it very carefully. She learned about hot the hard way. I feel sorry for her but these are the things that they have to find out on their own as much as you tell them otherwise.
Then there is the trip that is now two weeks away. That is taking a lot of my thoughts now. There is a lot to do to get ready and not much time to do it in. Caroline is excited. I plan on getting her some books at the Library about Australia and New Zealand so she has an idea of what she might see.
So I have a lot on my mind and a lot to do. Maybe I should get started on it.
I am grateful for suitcases that are bigger than they seem.
