Ready for the big annual trip to the U.S. of A

Today we are cleaning, packing and visiting with friends and neighbors who have stopped by to say good-bye (we are up to three visits so far).  We leave at 4:30 tomorrow morning!

Everyone is working through a list of stuff that needs to get done.   And we have our breaks all scheduled.  No cracks about someone being a little neurotic!!  It's working, and that's all I care about right now.

And this year we are doing another Mystery Road Trip.  This time, though, Mark helped me plan it, and he is about 10x less uptight than he was last year when he had NO idea where we were going or how long it would take.  It's really making me laugh to witness the difference.  This year we are stopping in 3 places and I can't wait!

The brothers won't be looking at the blog before we leave so I can give you guys some clues.

I hope to blog daily on this 2011 Billington Road Trip.  We'll see.

P.S. (at 1:12 a.m.)  WOOOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOOOOOO!  I found Joel's school library book while cleaning up a storage room!!!  I'm still up doing the very last load of laundry, packing food for our meals on the road, listening to my Easter playlist, telling myself that I'm not going to do this next year.  Who am I kidding?  I'll always work up until the very last minute.  Back to work.
