Is it really Friday
No! How could that be
Projects are unfinished
Staring down at me
Back from one vacation
I leave again today
The car's packed from the last trip
I look in dismay
What do I choose
To clean or to go
Although the laundry needs me
I smile and say no :)
Praise the Lord that it is Friday! However it seems like the world’s fastest week! Having only 3 days a home between trips means a bit on insanity.
Living away from family I am often roadtripping to visit... which means less time for house, projects etc.
I want to do everythings so I am attempting to create a list of the top 5 ways to stay organized while traveling - obviously I haven’t mastered it yet... but this is my working plan
#1 Have travel clothes -Although I don’t have a ton of clothes keeping some baby clothes and clothes of my own packed for my next trip... especially when the trips are back to back will make it easier than constantly looking for things.
#2 Pack less - The less you bring - the less there is to lose, dirty the car, pack, unpack etc
#3 Plan meals in advance - I have lots of crockpot and freezer meals... I just need to make sure I have the ingredients for them. Life runs much smoother with dinner ready right when I get home.
#4 Sneak loads of laundry throughout the day. For me this means to make sure I put in clothes over lunch break and right after work. If I just did this I could stay caught up.
#5 Bring your own snacks on trips. Planning food for back and forth will save a lot of money.
Highlights from my travel ...
#1 Dancing with my baby at the wedding.
#2 Taking photos the morning of the wedding.
#3 Enjoying an incredible photo booth experience - Check back Monday for an exciting post about Making the Perfect Photo Booth.
#4 Arranging beautiful flowers for the wedding.
I truly think the flowers look more beautiful when created by family and friends.
