DH knows my organizational skills are less than sublime. He also knows that since he can't accompany us on our camping trip, the planning and preparing has fallen to me and that it's a bit more stressful for me than it might be to him, making sure all's done and ready.
But, that said I'm pretty proud of myself. I've gotten several lists together and have crossed quite a few things off them already and made decisions as to what's really important and what's not, to simplify my life and minimize our packing. I do think everything will be ready by the time my friend's train gets in next week, provided my children don't make a whole new mess o' things in the next week.
So it truly annoys me when he gets smug about me finding out how much planning is involved in all of this. Dude, I know! It's not like I didn't lift a finger to get ready last time, we just shared this responsibility.
To his credit, he would help if I asked but dangit, I am stubborn and want to prove to myself that I can do this without his help. Beyond packing things into the van, that is, and getting the carrier on top of the roof of the van.
