My family just got back a few days ago from a trip to the Lake of the Ozarks. It was a Christmas/Anniversary/Birthday gift to our parents from all the kids. We rented a huge house on the water and had four glorious days to spend with one another.
Packing for such an adventure was a different story. Sure there was a full kitchen with appliances - but would they have salt and pepper? Tupperware to store leftovers? Parchment paper for under the oven fries? The absolute best price on steak we had seen for months?
We all threw in what we thought was good and necessary... including the whole watermelon I had left over from a youth event the Wednesday before. And that car was PACKED to the BRIM with our stuff.
Of course, then comes my brothers and sister-in-law. A backpack with some clothes and some sneaks =)
I am procrastinating right now, because what I should be doing is finishing my packing for Annual Conference.
I need to bring two different knitting projects for the long hours spent sitting.
