You made it! You are finally on vacation, and so are we. So far every part of going on this trip has been more work then just staying home. Congratulations, now you can finally relax, or so you think. I can say from personal experience that things don’t always go as planned.
Just like packing for the trip, going on the trip takes planning and organizing. I know, I know, you thought you had it covered when you finished packing. But, trust me, this planning is totally worth it. So let me share some of the tricks that help keep our kiddos happy on long car rides, and ultimately us adults relaxed.
So the trip is planned, and then it hits me…PACKING, ugh. Over the years I have worked hard to improve how we get it all together for leaving on a trip, but honestly it still is no fun and a lot of work. The biggest problem to overcome with having ADHD and kids with the same, is forgetting things. I can’t begin to count how many trips we have gone on that we forgot something. Some are pretty funny looking back on.
In our house, cleaning inevitably ends up making a much bigger mess…for the moment. Maybe it is that I take on too much at a time. Maybe we don’t work fast enough. Maybe, maybe, maybe. Honestly, it doesn’t much matter why when your house is in chaos.
The Adventure Begins? Well maybe not the full adventure, but at least this trip, the trip of starting a Blog. I have prayed, listened, waited, questioned and now here I am moving forward with what I believe God has in mind for our chaotic family, the adventure of blogging.
