We leave Saturday morning for a 7 hour drive to Sir Steve's parent's home. I have been making lists galore in my head - so many things to pack - to buy - to organise. Because Steven's stepmom's daughter wants to visit with us while we're there - I suggested dinner on Sunday AND I would make Indian food for the occasion.
Now in my world - that means dessert too..... and enough main course to feed an army. The menu is - butter chicken - curried sausages (bought from our local shop - they make THE best curried sausages) - pakoras - naan and basmati rice. For dessert I have made a pan of chocolate chunk brownies and am going to make 5 dozen peanut butter cookies.
Besides that - I promised the lil one an end of year celebration...... that's tonite. I bought her the new lego Harry Potter set.
The best thing about this set - all the pieces store inside and when it closes it looks just like a book! I also printed up a 'certificate' saying she survived 14 months of home schooling (hoping to get a little laugh out of her)
I'm also trying to get all the laundry caught up - so we can take all our summer clothes up to the country tomorrow night -- and all the staples from the pantry....... cause when we get back next week - we will be moving to the country for the summer. OH and I have to pack up all the lil one's summer clothes and toys.
I am trying to take most of the organizing/planning/worry off Sir Steve's shoulders. He has quite enough on his plate........ but it's tiring ya know? I stress I will forget something or screw something up. The week we get back - I get my second vaccination AND 2 days after that I have my cancer screening. It's a stressful time............ lists galore - and this too shall pass - right?
