So DH calls me in the middle of the day last Wednesday. "Uh, I forgot to tell you that we're going to Portland next Monday, staying the night and coming home Tuesday late afternoon for an Viking (insurance company) thing."
Argh! On one hand, whee!! Some time away, good food, fun. etc. On the other hand, we're just getting into the new school routine and I hate getting behind on correcting the kids' work - already!
So, off I go to pack my overnight bag. Think I'll just concentrate on having fun, and choosing a stitching project for the car ride!
