Counting down

We are now within a week of our big trip to Utah, and just over three weeks until school starts.

There is light at the end of the tunnel!

The girls, of course, are more excited about the trip than they are for school to start. For me, the trip and school are two parts of the same blessing. Just five more days, and I will no longer have to endure hour upon hour of children with unprecedented entertainment at their disposal complain about being bored.

They will complain that school is too hard, but that only happens first thing in the morning. And all evening. But the daytime will be mine. ALL MINE! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!

Ahem.

Of course, there is a great deal of work to get done in the next five days - packing, mowing, cleaning, laundering, working, shopping. I'm booked solid from now until the plane leaves Saturday afternoon.

And then there's the little excursion to bring the freezer from the storage unit. It's been there a year now. I really hope it still works. Yak is cheaper when bought in bulk, so we really need the freezer space.

Kara and the girls are in the kitchen making pumpkin bars, and it's probably time I check in with them.

Somewhere I have a business card identifying me as a Quality Assurance Engineer. Very handy when there are cookies to be inspected. Now, where did I put that thing.....

Quality control inspector, eh? Sounds like a great qualificiation to save for an emergency.

Truth be told, I still get a taste even without the card. But having a card just makes it that much more fun!
