A planning nightmare

Getting ready to travel is so much different than it used to be. J and I would throw everything together the night before, cram our packs full and head off on an adventure. Our upcoming trip is nothing like that.

I've spent hours and hours on the phone talking to airlines, hotels and B&Bs and car rental places. I needed to know if the hotel or B&B had a crib we could use and if the car rental place could rent us a car seat too. Will they let us take our stroller right to the gate of the plane?

I'm not normally so organized. I usually just go, but this trip is so different. I've booked our flights and yes, we can take the stroller to the plane. I've booked a little B&B on the ocean and yes, they have a playpen where Baby J can sleep. I've booked a rental car and yes, they have a car seat we can use.

Now I need to find the fun. What are we going to do? What is there to see? Do I have time to find out? Hardly, there's so much to do before we leave. But I know that we'll have fun. I know that our cat will be taken care of while we're gone. And I know we'll come back exhausted but happy. Bring on the trip!


  1. Oh my! So much to do! I hope you have a enough time to prepare and I hope you have a great time! :o)

  2. you'll have fun! The weather is great here today, so hopefully it stays that way when you're here!

  3. Be happy that you are not traveling alone with two kids to Sweden. Thats what I did. That was stressful!!
    It's great that you are planning ahead. I never learn... I still pack everything like the day before even though I have two little ones... but then I usually forget something too...:/
    Good Luck to you, and I hope you will have a great vacation!!
