It never fails that a couple days before vacation one of the girls is sick. Little R has the stomach flu again. She's miserable and can't keep anything down. I got so much cleaning done last night to try to make things easier on Mr. R since he has to work so much this week.
Now we have about 3 loads of laundry and almost no pillows, blankets or towels left clean. But Little R has gotten lots of practice on knowing the signs and making it in the trash can.
My house just felt so yucky. I just spent an hour an a half scrubbing bathrooms, cleaning and sweeping the bedrooms, and cleaning the kitchen. Oh and doing lots of laundry.
So Pre-vacation tradition #1 - last minute sickness.
Pre-vacation tradition #2 - major appliance break down. This usually happens the night before we leave. Crossing my fingers and knocking on wood that this will not happen again this year.
I also did lots of baking tonight. I had bought way too much produce and their was no way we'd use it. So I made an apple streusel for dessert tonight that used 6 apples and it's almost all gone now. I also made banana raisin muffins most of which will be put in the freezer for later. And we have lots of sour cream so I baked some potatoes for lunch and dinner the next couple of days.
