Today's To-Do List (or as Audrey used to call it when she was little, a "Duh-Doo List"):
*Do everyone's laundry
*Pack everyone's bags (except Chad's)
*Make enchiladas to bring along as an evening meal
*Gather all necessary groceries
*Make sure we have all beach "stuff" ready including  toys, towels, umbrellas, coolers, etc.
*Gather everyone's loveys and security objects and sleeping paraphernalia, including CD player for white noise
*Pack up toiletries including sunscreen and medicines.
*Check weather forecasts and come up with a few Plan B's in case of rain.
*Decide which toys we should bring that are the smallest yet most entertaining.
*Speaking of entertainment, we better pack a bunch of DVD's for when we have downtime.
*Make last minute run to store for things I've forgotten (doesn't matter HOW much I plan, there is always something forgotten ... Argh!)
*Load up kindle with books to read... okay, I just made myself laugh out loud writing that one.  A girl can dream can't she??

All this while keeping 3 kids occupied and preventing them from killing each other...

Tomorrow's To-Do List:
*Head to Ocean City, NJ for a week's vacation.  Relax.   (If that's what taking 3 kids on a trip is called....ha!)

Getting ready for vacation is such a drag for us moms. But, once you's pretty darn nice. It may not actually be relaxing, but a change of scenery is always good. Enjoy!
