change of plans

i had been psyched for a last, relaxed day of preparation and packing on tuesday but it looks as though we will leave for fort dodge that morning so as to help iva around the house. she broke her arm. packages are wrapped and ready to go.
it meant moving a few details forward but we're essentially ready to go. i need to figure out what clothes to pack and make sure that last load of laundry gets done tomorrow night - nothing too major. i might even get in on some of the holiday hustle and bustle with a grocery run in fd beings we'll be there for such a long time. hope you have a merry christmas.

Sorry to hear about Iva's arm. Definitely leave yourself things to do, places to go and errands to run while you are in FD. When do you return to Nebraska?

ooh, that is nice. Jacob and Kate will have someone to hang out with then on Christmas eve. I was wondering how her arm turned out. Seems to me that Larry is the culprit. She shoudln't go to his house anymore. I am alsmost done too. Why do I keep adding tasks to my list thought???? Argh. Still no chance you could scoot up our way for new years w/ Jacob and Kate. Seriously mom, you should quit the library and just hang out with your kids in your spare time.
