Is it vacation yet?

How does one pack for a 5-day cruise?

That’s easy – pack everything you own. There’s no weight limit on a ship!

4 pairs of shoes? Why not?! Heck – I’m packing the big bag! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Sweet!!

I just spent three hours washing clothes, folding clothes, selecting clothes, packing clothes, and second guessing myself on clothes. I am clothes-ed out. And my head hurts. Is it vacation yet?

We’re almost to ‘vacation fridge mode’ in the house, so dinner got interesting. All we had was a bag of carrots, an onion, leftover chicken, half a can of chickpeas, half a ball of mozzarella, and a quarter of a jar of marinara sauce. We also had a frozen pizza in the freezer, but I hate to see food go to waste. So, what did I do? I combined it all in a big pot (minus the pizza) and called it a meal.

I’m pretty sure I’ve proven at this point in my three year blogging career that you can turn anything into dinner. ‘We have nothing to eat’ simply does not work in this house – there’s always something to eat. Luckily, that something to eat is usually pretty darn good too.

No time for garlic toast? Spray a piece of toast with Pam and sprinkle some garlic salt on it. Works wonders.

I had a good amount of work to do today, so I couldn’t start packing until after dinner. Once I was finished, I treated myself with an easy apple crumble.

Cinnamon + Hot Apples + Graham Cracker + Chocolate + Vanilla Yogurt = Easy Apple Crumble ๐Ÿ™‚

My alarm is set for 5am!!!! I have a 17 mile run to get out of the way before vacation can begin!

Good Night!!

October 7, 2011

Good News! Maddie passed her doggie camp interview! She even got bonus points for her ‘bubbly personality’ and ‘ability to get along well with others.’ I’m such a proud mama. ๐Ÿ™‚ Maddie’s previous doggie hotel recently closed, so I’ve been researching new places to leave her for when we go out of town next week. more ยป
