Passing Down Crazy

Because Sometimes the Best Thing You Can Give Your Kid is an Addiction…To Yarn

Should I Panic Yet?


I have three days to suddenly become organized.  Don’t laugh!  We leave in the middle of the night on Friday to catch a flight.  A flight that will take My Hero and I away for 15 days.  It’s our 25th Anniversary next week, and we’re going to the Caribbean.  (Yes, there will be blog posts.)

Before then I need to:

  • Finish quilting and bind a quilt.  Almost Done!
  • Sign Frankie up for summer camp.  Done
  • Make a Target run.  Done
  • Celebrate Dreamboy’s 16th birthday.
  • Take Dreamboy in for his drivers test.  Passed!
  • Buy a boatload of groceries.
  • Guitar lessons.  Canceled
  • Clean my bedroom and bathroom for Super Nanny!
  • Register Ms In-Charge for a missions trip.  Done
  • Do the whole prom thing with Superblonde.
  • Pay bills.
  • Go to a funeral.  It will be a joy and it will be heartbreaking.
  • Do laundry.  Done
  • Cover my gray hair.  Done
  • Piano lessons.  I can’t forget like I did last week!
  • Pack.
  • Assemble electronics (computer, Kindle, camera, power converter, etc.)
  • Sleep a little bit.  Ha!  When?

Yeah!  You’re feeling really sorry for me, aren’t you?  Ha!

It’s a good thing I have my knitting organized.

It’s the Caribbean.  Who needs clothes?

  1. You can buy clothes on vacation… but yarn stores in the Caribbean may be thin on the ground.


  2. Holy cow, that is quite a list! Good thing you have a fab trip as motivation!~

  3. haha! first things first!
    the good news is you have a list! you’re off to a good start!
    Have a great trip!

  4. I think my blood pressure just went up as I read your blog! Your list is your only link to sanity as far as I can tell. Have a great trip!

  5. I realize that every time I have a schedule like yours the first thing I do is the knitting that I will need. OH Well!! Then I can really prioritize every thing else. You can do it, Just block the time elements on your calendar and multitask, knowing that the knitting is ready.

  6. Have a great time, you’re going to love it….you’ll get through that list, I have faith in you…

  7. I am all ready to go. 🙂

  8. I’m glad to see that your priorities are in order – the Yarn.
    Have a wonderful trip!
