It’s Monday and we are getting ready to go to the beach for a few days. I have lots of packing to do. why am I here at my computer then? Hmmmm. Don’t know. I guess I could be putting of the packing. As I was telling my friend this morning, we are only going for a few days, yet I have have to pack so much STUFF. When you travel with kids, you need to think of all the possiblities, don’t you? Ya need the snacks-plenty of them–if you are going to have any peace. Then there’s all the clean up stuff—paper towels, Wet Ones, and so on. Beach stuff, toys, books. And, just to complicate things, we are taking our dog.
