Speech Notebook Wednesday
Since Charlotte didn't get to go with Nate and his friends to the game, I couldn't write about that for Speech Notebook, so I resorted to the leaf-raking story. Here it is in all its glory.
In other fall news, so far today Tim has been to not one, but two grocery stores, and there's a chance he may have to go back. I'm packing for our trip to a cabin on a lake in North Carolina, where we'll celebrate both Thanksgiving and Tim's parents' 45th anniversary with all his family. In marked contrast to past trips, I actually have all day today to get everything done and I've got a really good start on it!
Unfortunately for me I haven't figured out a way to reconcile my OCD tendencies and my extreme procrastination. For some reason I feel the need to have every item of clothing in the house clean before I pack, probably so I can take anything I want on the trip. So almost every day before a trip I spend all day washing, only to find myself trying to pack starting at about 11 pm. Surely there's a better way.
The solution? Have one whole day before we travel dedicated to preparing, and be sure to have Tim home the whole time! If that doesn't do it, there's no hope.
