Lights Out! Jensen's Out!

Across the room my precious toddler runs to me, ponytails bobbing. In her tiny outstretched hand is the DVD Scooby Doo. This is unique because for months straight all she wanted to watch was the Incredibles. I started the movie with a giggling girl at my feet. The movie was just starting when the screen turned blank and all of the power went out. My first thought? Oh, this can't be happening! I have to do the laundry, wash the dishes, vacuum and pack. How can I do all that with no power? I was just hoping that it would come back on soon so I didn't have to do everything the night before we left. As it turns out the power didn't come back on until about 3 a.m. Now I'm stuck trying to do all of the above plus clean out the car and charge the camera batteries for our trip to the lagoon amusement park. I know what you're thinking. Why didn't she start any of this sooner? Because I'm a procrastinator. I tried to start a little packing from a dark closet last night but the children saw to it that I need not try. They wanted (demanded!) my attention. What's a mom to do? Pack and try to accomplish as much as I can with whining children pulling on my arms or give in and entertain the kids? Well, as you can see from the video below the kids won. Plus it was mostly them entertaining me!
I'm very excited to be getting away for a few days with my hubby for our 10th anniversary. Collin is looking forward to lots of sleepovers with his grannies so I don't feel too guilty leaving him behind while we go have fun. We'll post some pics next week. Have a great weekend everyone!
I know we will!!!
