Trip Prep

At Chez Darwin, preparations are in full swing for next week's road trip to Cincinnati. Getting out of the house never used to be such a big fuss when it was just the two of us. Now, however, one must pack diapers, sippy cups, stuffed animals, snacks, and plenty of cleaning supplies. Add these to our plan to leave the house at around 3:30 am next Monday (oh, and the girls' dance recital is on Sunday afternoon) and packing and getting the house ready becomes a week-long affair.

The plan (ha! ha! the plan!) is to clean one room and complete some essential packing task a day. Will this result in a clean house and a full van Sunday night? Stay tuned...

Sounds like a good plan. Let me know if the rooms you've already cleaned *stay clean* while you work on the next room on the list. That's the big problem 'round here. Is there a solution other than taping it off?

Well, the first room I cleaned was my bathroom, and it's stayed fairly pristine. It helps that the door locks. Of course, no one has any reason to go in my bathroom most of the time -- not that lack of reason stops the young ladies...

We could run a sweepstake on what exact hour of early Monday morning you finish packing the van....
