Well, we are almost ready to head out on our grand adventure. The excitement is building in our home and items on our ever growing list are being marked off. The trailer and van seem to be in good working order. They have been checked out by some very helpful friends.
Today was all about cleaning out the trailer until I got the idea in my head to do some reconstructing of the inside. The dinette was useless because of its half-circle design. I decided that we needed to tear it out and create a bench seat instead. Boo and Miss M probably thought something along these lines "Oh boy, here goes Mom again coming up with an idea at the last minute. I hope she knows what she's doing." I never do know what I am doing. I kind of think that things should just work. Thankfully this idea did work although I will admit that it probably should have been done much earlier than two days before our departure.
We did clean out the trailer and L came over providing lunch and quite a few helping hands. We got most of the food packed and everything spotless. Tomorrow the clothes go in and the beds get made. We also need to finish the bench project.
After we finish that project we will need to clean up the house and make sure everything is ready to go. This is when you know that the moment you leave the driveway there will be a big sigh from everyone. A sigh of relief that the work is done and the adventure is beginning.
I probably will not be able to post until Wednesday or Thursday. An obvious prayer request would be for safe travels, mending of hearts, and a great time of bonding between the children and I.
