Bags packed and ready

The gardener's been hired. Ditto for the pool guy. The kids are packed and finally in bed. We leave in 6 hours, and yes, I've decided to blog.

Here's a photo of our packed bags. Can you tell whose is whose?

I'll give you a hint. Mine is the smallest one. :-)

I'm sure I'm forgetting something, but I'm tired and stressed. I've been working on a DVD editing project for a non-profit and it's just about ready for final proofing. However, Encore DVD is taking forever to render the DVD image. I tried burning the DVD straight, but that hung my computer, so now it's making an image on my hard drive. After I'm done here, I'm going to see if it worked. It was a fun project, but I hate how slow computers can be sometimes--even the latest and greatest. Video editing just makes computers smoke.

A lot of work goes into leaving home for 6 weeks. Who will watch the cat? Who will take out the garbage for pick up? I threw out a bunch of food today. Sort of a waste, but you can't really ask your neighbors if they want the remains of some jar of jelly.

Well, everyone is asleep. I wish I could sleep as easily as the kids. They went swimming and then conked out. Erin was so sweet today asking what she could do to help. Devin and Teagan needed prodding to help, but really they all did a great job getting their stuff organized.

Next entry: the UK.

okay, those can NOT be all of your bags!!! There's like 2 days worth of clothes in there!

Maybe they look small in the photo, but I think we packed a lot. We have clothes for at least a week without having to do laundry. That's a bit overkill.

Plus we packed towels, sunscreen, gifts, books.

I discovered that we've packed some rather odd things. Terry packed this massage bar for rubbing out knots in your legs. (He's running nearly every day.)

I packed a lot of books, plus I'm reading Steve's novel (a friend).

The hardest part will be putting it all in a car/taxi. I think when we get to Greece, we'll all be there with bags on our laps!
