Packing Ella off

We should be leaving for the country in about an hour- I think I have all of Ella's stuff packed up (three bags, plus stroller and carseat and diaper bag. That kid does not travel light). I still need to do a bag for me, since I'll be staying til Tuesday maybe. Hopefully B will be home a bit late so I have time to finish everything off. I'm sitting here at the computer despite the last minute rush because I forgot to make up the mommy and daddy dolls I had been going on and on about. That doll that I posted a picture of? Too weird so I went and did a new one for me that I think turned out great and a really funny one of B. I spent this afternoon in photoshop trying to get rid of his stubble. It was sort of throwing off the little boy vibe that I was going for. I lost the transfer paper at some point so I ended up having to run to the grocery store to pick up some more. I'm only printing them off now. God- I blame the last few days on a voodoo curse, but I may have to take a bit of responsibility for my complete lack of organization. I think my brain is already on holiday.

There is a big dinner tomorrow at the in-laws for the annual hunt that they do in their forest. When we were there 2 weeks ago there was already lots and lots of tension over the organization so I hope things aren't too hectic tonight when we arrive. Like I said last time, I try to keep a low profile but apparently even that doesn't keep me out of trouble with them. I will atleast come with a great big box of chocolates- you can't hate anyone who brings you chocolates, can you?

B is home early. Great. He caught me slacking off again. Must go do my bags and feed the baby. Have a good weekend!

Thanks Sally! But he does always seem to walk in the door just when I have sat down at the computer for 5 minutes- its no wonder he thinks that is all I do all day :-)
