One Last Dance Before I go!



Happy Dance that is! Finally this blanket is done - well the stitching is done. Still have to do the finishing, but that will have to wait til we return from our trip. :)

We are also having new doors installed today - so if I get a chance I'll post some pictures of the new door later today. We'll see though cause our toilet handle broke this morning, making flushing impossible on the upstairs toilet. Luckily we do have a basement bathroom too, so we can use a bathroom. Why does stuff like this always happen when you are about to go on vacation? Looks relatively easy to fix though, just buy a new handle that should connect through the back of the toilet to the little arm thing that pulls up the stopper in the bottom. Just one more errand for me to run today! Yikes.

I also have to finish the laundry, finish the packing (mostly done except for items from the laundry), and mow the lawn. DH is really frustrating me, cause I know he doesnt have enough clean clothes and underwear to bring and I've offered to do some laundry for him during the day today (he's working - I'm off) so that it'll be ready to pack when he gets home. He just keeps saying he doesn't have time to get the laundry together for me - so now he has to do it himself when he gets home and then pack after that. Considering we are leaving at 5am tomorrow morning, this is starting to stress me a bit that he isn't packed AT ALL. He cut the tags off his luggage last night and had the nerve to tell me how good he's doing getting ready and expected me to say how good that was! *sigh* I hate how he always leaves everything to the last minute!

Have a wonderful vacation, Jen! I hear you on the frustration with your DH on packing. We once went to a funeral out of town, and we had to stop on the way to buy shoes, because DH forgot to pack his shoes... Duh...
