I have a list of things to do. Literally. I made a list. A list of things to pack. A list of places to map. A list of things to do before I pack (laundry). A list of people to call (down to one: the hotel).

Amy & I have lost our minds.

We’re taking our four (count them: 1, 2, 3, 4) kids to Santa Fe for a little road-trip. Without back-up parents. I repeat, there are no dads on this trip. Just two moms and four kids in one car for six hours.

And folks? This is as spontaneous as I get. Amy asked me last Friday if we wanted to go to Santa Fe this week. And here we are T minus 1380 minutes and I’m blogging.


Hey, at least I have my priorities.

4 smart people left their mark:

    That does sound like fun–it’s only five hours or so, right? If the kids would enjoying soaking, you could stop at Ojo Caliente.

    That sounds like a blast! You know, I thought taking my kids to Jersey without Todd was going to be a nightmare, but it ended up being lovely.
