Thursday Thirteen #11

Thirteen Things I need to get done before the kids and I head to the grandparents' place for the weekend


  1. Pack....clothes for myself and 6 kids
  2. Laundry, because you can't pack without clean clothes
  3. Dishes...because I HATE coming home to a messy house
  4. Work....
  5. Clean off my desk
  6. Sweep (really, with a broom!) the whole downstairs because the leaves are taking over
  7. Fill up the gas tank, because 1/2 tank of gas with NOT get us to South Carolina
  8. Change the sheets on eldest daughter's bed in anticipation of my sister's visit
  9. Call my mother and fill her in on the change of plans
  10. Buy snacks for the trip
  11. Clean out the van
  12. Pack movies, games, pillows, blankets for the kids
  13. Prepare blog posts for the weekend.

Hope you all have a GREAT Resurrection Day weekend!!! For more Thursday Thirteen participants, go here.

Now, I just did not notice stopping in and reading all your fav blogs on that list, LOL.

I hate when life gets that hectic but it seems like that is almost every other day at the least around here.

Good luck!

A busy list you have! I am the same way. I clean the house from top to bottom before I leave. I have having to unpack AND clean when arriving home :) Have a great weekend!

Thanks for stopping by BrainFreeze.

My daughther has four children and I think cleaning the van is an ongoing chore...some days it's a lost cause.

Happy TT
