On the brink of VACATION!!

So, I am PROCRASTINATING...I should be packing for Pismo but my brain is already in vacation mode...our family goes to Pismo once a year--this year my grandparents have rented a beach front house that we can all fit in and we get to spend a week relaxing!
As excited as I am I just can't find the motivation to get things done--it's a bit overwhelming to pack for two 18 month olds for a's what the math looks like
for 1 child most people say pack 2-3 outfits per day: 14-21 outfits

we need pj's for every night because we usually wet through at least one set per night: 7 pj's for 1 child

x's by 2: 42-56 outfits total


at least 2 sweaters per child, 1 coat per child

2 pairs of socks per child per day: 28 pairs of socks

2 pairs of shoes per child/2 pairs sandals per child...

7 sheets per child--refer back to wet diapers in the night--we usually change the sheets once a day...actually I just read that...who in their right mind has 14 pack-n-play sheets not me--looks like we'll be washing sheets!

2 pack-n-plays

2 booster seats

1 double stroller...

good thing we're taking the truck!

All adding up to 1 momma who should definetely be packing instead of blogging...

btw don't judge me for my spelling, I'm a fairly good speller but have never been able to spell the word definetely's like a mental block, go figure!
Honestly I don't know how all of you mother's do it--or how my mom did it with 4 kids for so many years...I guess I'll find out eventually...but for today I'll stick to packing for 3...wish me luck!

Thursday Thoughts...

Most of my blog is about my much as I love them it makes me feel like I don't have a life beyond being a mom...which I guess could be true at some times--it just makes me feel fairly uninteresting!
So I thought I'd try to blog about something different every once in a while...
I had Jury Duty this was awful and I front of the whole court room and the judge--I am traumatized! The case was very similar to the car accident I was in back in 2003 and had been caused by a 21 year old kid who had been drinking--it felt way too familiar for me and I had to explain to the judge that I couldn't be unbiased in the situation because of I explained the car accident and how it impacted so much of my life back then I began to cry--I was so embarassed...the upside--I was excused which means they consider me as having served and I can't be called again for a year...BAD day though!
I am obsessed with Glee...Joe and I rented the first disc of season 1 via Netflix and bought the first season shortly after--we have watched the entire season twice! We don't pay for TV though and have been watching season 2 online a few days after the new episodes come out...I am sad to say I don't enjoy the 2nd season nearly as much as the first...
We are going to Pismo Beach in less than 2 weeks and I am so excited! We look forward to this trip all year long!
I have been toying with the idea of joining a gym--I used to love running but have only done it a few times since having the this point I am a little bit scared to run because when I do it will show me exactly how out of shape I really am...
Last Saturday night Joe and I got free movie tickets to see Life as we Know it--it was a pre screening type thing, I don't think it comes out until November--although it could come out this month I have no was actually pretty cute and for being a free movie we both had a great time...since the movie was free we were able to spend a whopping $11 on a small popcorn, large soda, and a water bottle--amazing! We stopped by Coldstone for dessert and came home to sleeping boys and a clean house--thanks Mommie!--We don't get to go out just the two of us very often but landing free movie tickets was the perfect reason for a night to ourselves!
One last thing--my calling right now is in Young Womens, I am the Personal Progress Specialist and I absolutely LOVE it! The girls in our ward are so sweet and I have had such a great time getting to know them! We are trying to move into a house and are looking so hard to stay in our ward because I LOVE being in Young we have some pretty rad people in our ward!
