Lists and lists

We are hoping to leave on vacation this Friday. I say "hoping" because we might have to postpone out trip at the last minute because of health. The plan is to leave on a lovely long road trip to western Oregon and eastern Washington to visit friends and family and to enjoy breathtaking scenery that is not our own every-day Montana beauty. I can't wait to see the Oregon coast again!

In preparation, I've made lists and more lists. I thought for a minute that I had lost them yesterday, and that was a little (just a little) scary. But I hadn't. Here's what I'm hoping to get done today and tomorrow:

~Eat leftovers and clean out the fridge
~Clean the house. Ideally this would include vacuuming, sweeping/mopping, and cleaning the bathroom. I don't think that's going to happen, so I'll probably be fairly satisfied with a tidying and quickly hitting the worst spots.
~Teach two music lessons.
~Wash a couple of loads of laundry.
~Pack all of our stuff
~Bake pasties to eat on the go.
~Make granola bars for snacks.
~Turn my brown bananas into muffins.
~Boil eggs.
~Mend three pairs of pants and a shirt.
~Mail Father's Day card
~Take care of Little Man.

I'm praying for wisdom to know what is reasonable to try to accomplish. I don't want to start the vacation exhausted because I didn't know when to stop. Anyway, off I go to (calmly) plunge into my whirl of preparations. ; )
