Well after a very sleepless night, I found my ID this morning! It somehow ended up in my makeup bag in my purse. Weird but SUCH a relief.
We spent the day running errands and getting ready for our trip. In other words: laundry, laundry, laundry. Though we did sneak away for a little mommy-daughter spa time. Isla loooooves getting her nails painted, and of course she chose “pink & sparkly” for fingers and toes.
I was trying to figure out something for dinner tonight when I realized that I’d frozen a batch of Pulled Pork a while back. Nice! I haven’t really bought any groceries for the week since we’re leaving, so this was a lifesaver. Just heated up the pork in the microwave, and we had that along with roasted broccoli and mac & cheese (Lean Cuisine, ’cause we fancy). I’m pretty amazed at how well the pork froze, too. Next time I may make a double batch just to keep one on hand for sandwiches or quesadillas.
Oh, check out what Jack brought home today:
At first I was really touched…
But then he informed me that the teacher made everyone write that they were thankful for mom & dad.
Ha! Oh well, I’ll take what I can get. And he stayed within the lines!
We’re leaving at the buttcrack of dawn on Wednesday so not sure if I’ll be able to post tomorrow night. Knowing us we’ll be scrambling to pack late into the night, but I promise I’ll try!
