I'm sitting here with my coffee willing myself to get off the couch and get going. But I just can't do it. It is a gray, dreary morning perfect for sitting around drinking coffee all wrapped up in a blanket. But the boys are hungry already. Starving! they tell me. And I have to get dressed. We have to go to the store. I have to pack the kids' bags. I have to pack the cooler. I have to pack my bag. I have to get Grace ready. Oh, and I can't forget the cold medicine. Seems Joey is starting to get sick. And I think Grace is teething again.
We are heading up north for the weekend. I'm sure we have missed the peak color up there already but we are looking forward to it anyway. Piles and piles of leaves to rake. Crisp mornings. Sunsets over the lake. Bonfires with marshmallows. It will be lovely. Once we get there.
Until then there is shopping to be done. Packing, sorting, planning. And also, the three hour drive. I could skip over that part entirely. I'm exhausted just thinking about it.
For now, I'm going to sit here with my coffee for a few more minutes before the madness begins and hope this weekend turns out to be half as good as I picture it in my mind.
What do you have planned for the weekend? Madness? Tranquility? Or a little bit of both?
