This last week has been such a blur. I've been busy shopping, packing, and cleaning in preparation for this trip. This morning I scrubbed as much of the house as I could and now I'm exhausted. When I was a kid, I always hating getting ready for a trip, because it would mean my mom running around like a crazy person telling us we had to clean up the house. My sister and I never understood, always replying "why are you cleaning?!? We're not even going to be here." But Mom, I get it now. Although my house is usually messy, I don't want to come back to a mess. I can't bear the thought of having to vacuum those tiny Isaiah crumbs when I get back. It's funny how we turn into our moms, isn't it?
Anyway, we'll be gone about a week. Hopefully I'll get a chance to enjoy all the goodness Portland has to offer. Wish me luck on our long adventure tonight. We'll be getting in at 11pm, which will be 2 am our time. I hope Isaiah (and I) survive!
Have a good weekend everyone!
