What Was I Thinking?

We're headed off to NYC this weekend to visit some friends. It will be the first vacation that Craig and I have taken in what seems like forever that wasn't some sort of add on or afterthought to visiting family, attending a wedding, or some other such function. It will also be Truman's first time on a plane.

Since I travel quite a bit for work, I'm the one that handles all of the travel logistics for our family...including packing.

Which leads me to my current spaz. I need to pack. For 2 adults. And and INFANT. For 3 days. In New York. Where it's COLD.

You see, this not only involves things like strollers and baby carriers and pack & plays and breast pumps but also mittens and extra hoodies and fleece pajamas and sweaters. I live in TEXAS, people. Truman only has one set of fleece pajamas. And because I'm still working on losing my baby weight, I have one (maybe 2) sweaters that fit and are decent enough to wear in public (add this to the list of joys of working from home).

So this afternoon I'm off to Kohl's and Target to see if I can't find some winter weather attire on clearance for the two of us. Then tomorrow I get to try and shove all of this stuff into suitcases.

STAY FOCUSED...this means that we're going to NYC!!! And we get to see friends!!! And I'll be going through an airport with Truman for the first time WITH CRAIG instead of alone!!!
