the final countdown (i wish i could play theme music here)

well, we are leaving for illinois, sometime in the next 24 hours. it will be a miracle if everything gets pulled off smoothly.

things to do before we leave:
- finish gifts and cards
- sew button on and iron my dress (which i haven't worn since may because of said missing button)
- iron clothes for justin/finn
- put together all of the things i have meaning to give to people back home
- take a shower :)
- finn needs a bath
- clean the bathroom for our house sitter, assuming we will have one by the end of the day
- make a list of all of the things i know i'll forget (i.e. finn's booster seat and monkey, camera, etc.)

all of that on top of regular day activities. :) we will overcome!!
