I like the spreadsheet idea. DH usually has a yellow tablet page with everything listed that he marks off as he loads whatever we are driving.
Junepath, I'm jealous you and Amelia are having an extended vacation! enjoy!
It was a total random thing, a good friend of mine who lives in Nashville said her parents needed a house sitter at their house in South Florida for 2 weeks, and did I want to come with her. After how much misery we went through last year, I jumped on the chance Plus, it will probably be many years before we make it down that way again, so it's a really great opportunity.
