Mini Vacay

We're packing up for a mini trip to Minneapolis this weekend! I'm excited but apprehensive, as I typically am before a trip.
- to go to a Twins game in the new stadium
- to eat at The Cheesecake Factory for Jenna's birthday

- to be in a big city again

- to spend time with my family

- to eat junk food on during the road trip (what? that's something to get excited about, right?)

- to have a set budget for the trip so we can't go overboard and then get home and freak out over not being able to pay bills for the next few months!

- about sitting in a vehicle for 5 hours with six other people (I get a bit claustrophobic and anxious)

- about sharing a room with the boy because I snore and I know I snore and I'm a light sleeper and I worry that if I snore I'm going to wake up the boy and thereby wake myself and so I just end up hardly sleeping at all.
- as you can imagine, this makes for a very crabby lady the next day.

- as you can imagine, this, in turn, makes for a very crabby husband.

- as you can imagine, this makes every irritating thing our children do seem ten times more irritating.
- I don't like the traffic in Minneapolis.

- I don't like the freeways either.

- They stress me out.

- Like, big time.

- The thought of taking the three kids to a baseball game is pretty much freaking me out.

- I hope Grandma and Grampa are prepared to fork out lots of treats to keep the kids from causing me to lose it.

- The fact that my apprehensive list is quite a bit longer than my excited list is causing me to stress out.

- It's making me pretty much freak out, too.

- Like, big time.

I'll see you on the other side!

Make each day count!
