We're all set and ready to go. This is a first for me because I'm not leaving for the airport until 3am tomorrow. Normally I'd have left the packing until today and would still be throwing things in the cases as Better Half was putting them in the car!
I've got 2 things left to do before I am officially finished. The first is simple...the dog needs to be dropped at the kennels. The second is a bit more like a military operation...packing the kids rucksacks for the flight. Experience has taught me well on this though. I am well rehersed in the "9 hours on a plane + 4 hyper kids excited at going to Florida = Chaos" thing. So at this moment in time I have Gameboys, Ipods, Portable Dvd's and Nintendo Ds's attached to chargers all round the house. Next on the agenda is to pack the various games and dvd's that they will want to take with them for their gadgets. This is where my diplomacy skills come into play as 5 year old seems to think he can take his entire dvd collection and every game he owns!
So I will go now and get the last of my jobs done before I head to the sun.
Be good while I'm gone and I expect to read all about what you've all been up to when I get back!
