Tomorrow, Tomorrow...

First, I want to tell you that I spelled that title without my spell check lighting up!  WooHoo, I have finally taught myself to correctly spell the blasted word.  Now to just work on vaccuum, or vacuum as it is actually spelled.

And I should know all about vacuum right now, as yesterday I left work early to pick up, vacuum, clean carpets, and steam clean floors.  The public rooms of our house are clean!  I feel so domestic now.

I also hit the grocery store and picked up the necessary foods for Dana to survive while I'm away.  Frozen beef taquitos, Jimmy Dean breakfast sandwiches and a big box of Lucky Charms.  I secretly think Dana and the kids like me leaving, because I buy food normally left off the list to stock the house when I'm gone.  There are also a few bean and cheese burritos still in the freezer from my Ft. Worth trip.

Tomorrow is the big day!  I'm being picked up in the morning and we're driving to the airport, and some time around 11:18 pm EST, I'll be in DC.  I'm finally excited instead of stressed.  Although I do have moments of panic.  I still have to pick up Dana's prescriptions and finish packing, but I am ready.  The only thing I don't have, is cute sundresses to wear in the heat there.  It's not because I didn't look.  I went to Target and ShopKo, but didn't find anything that I thought was decent to wear and reasonably priced. 

I borrowed a very nice blue skirt suit from my friend, but with the weather forecast, I may just leave it at home.  I don't think it will be bearable in the heat.  Instead I'm opting for my silk dress.  The silk dress that didn't fit until my friend/coworker gave me her pair of Spanx.  It took me down a size and my dress fits beautifully now. 

Expect lots of photos in the next few days!  And no posts on forgotten luggage, thanks to traveling with others.  I do have one request though: Anyone know how to best pack my silk dress so that it isn't horribly disfigured by the time I get to DC?

You might try rolling the dress with parchment paper. Also, if its the dress Dad and I brought you from China, it can be ironed on the wrong side. I know its not the most fun thing to do, but it should work. Also as humid as DC is you might just hang it in the bathroom when you shower and let it fall. Have loads of fun. When do you get home?

Have a great trip TJ. I live near DC and it is very hot and humid here. Just so you know! I will never get used to this humidity!

Having luggage ROCKS. Especially if there are clothes and toiletries inside.

Enjoy your trip!

When I was in middle school my mom switched jobs and during her job training was in Seattle quite a bit. During these times my dad was left to take care of us. Dinner consisted of McDonalds and macaroni and cheese. The sad thing is he's actually a really good cook, he's just too lazy to cook more than one night in a row :/
