Leaving On a Jet Plane to DISNEYWORLD!!! After a full year, Hunter’s Make a Wish is finally here! What a process this has been! After our trip, I will detail the process, from start to finish. Tonight…I just sit and think. I think about all the things that are undone. There is still a small load of dirty clothes. Also, Hunter got wet but did not get a scrub bath. Oh, then there is the “is it liquid or not” conundrum. I am sitting looking at my kids’ boxes (for their keepsakes) and all I notice is that 2 lids aren’t on perfectly.
Big Daddy is working on his bag at 10:39 pm. I’m thinking about the dishes in the sink, getting video/pictures, and do I wear jeans or leggings on the plane? Oh, one of the kids puked…is it nerves or a bug? Will he be sick on the plane, get everyone sick…what if it rains the whole time we are there? Seriously, my mind is swirling.
Over the course of the week, I got myself and 5 kids packed. Luckily, my big girls can pack for themselves LOL. In a stroke of genius and Marie Kondo-ing luggage, we were able to get them all packed in a backpack. Yay! I have a HUGE tote bag and a weekender. Big Daddy has a duffel bag. Our “checked bag” is full of just extra things and liquids LOL. We are also checking an empty bag for souvenirs, per the advice of many other Make a Wish families!
I am very thankful that my son-in-law is staying at our house. You know, I am all about safety! Also, my dear friend is coming to take care of my animals during the day. I have all the bases covered!
For now, I channel God’s grace on this trip. I am putting my OCD in a bottle and am going to physically *try* to let it all go. It is hard to not focus on why we are there, sometimes. I will not do that, this week! We are not going to stress and we are going to have a great time!
Prayers are TRULY appreciated!
