Sounds like you've got plenty to do to get ready for your trip. I hope it's a lot of fun! Why is it the men folk can never help prepare for a trip?

Oh, Mr. Kluges is great for helping. He's been doing the dishes, vacuuming, putting away the dishes, providing supporting opinions when I ask him about Sunday church clothes choices, etc., etc., etc. But since I'm the one around during the day, I get some of the extra tasks like packing for the girls and the trip and all. I don't mind; it just always takes more time than I expect.

My hubby used to be a bit more helpful. I know what you mean about having more time and all, but when I'm supposed to pack for Cheesehead too I get a bit sensitive.

It's not even that I mind helping him out, just the fact that everyone always gets mad at me if I forget something.

I think my family is getting old enough to make sure that certain things they consider "essential" get packed. I guess you don't have that luxury yet. Just wait!
