My family drove me nuts, and then I got stuck in traffic
Washed my hair and wham, several ideas hit me all at once!

FYI: we watched Skyfall this weekend and can I just tell you ladies, I'm now a HUGE Daniel Craig fan. Wow, wow, wow!
Oh when the Doctor said that (knowing my Drs. like I do), I would have said and what time will you be available to help so I can take a break? LOL

I wish, but my husband's family is dead set on waiting until next Thanksgiving and he wants to go with them this time. I asked the question so early because we are looking at costs and whether we will be able to afford it. I have to start saving now if we are even going to think about next year. Believe me, if there was any way I could financially afford it this year I would be right there with all of you! (I would certainly have a better time with my DIS sisters than with the outlaws ) But with DS starting college I just can't do it this year. I will be living vicariously through all of you, though!

OT: Danielle,
Do you want me to send you my spreadsheet of college needs I made for DS dorm/college life?? (I based it loosely of DD's purchases but you don't have to over decorate for the boys)...

That would be awesome, Nan! Thank you. I would love it if I didn't have to do the shopping all at once and could spread it out over a couple months (and so would my checkbook).

That is what we did with DD.. we broke it up... helped tremendously and make note of items that you can give to others to buy when they call to ask what to get the Grad... My mom asks for a list and she gets that and their TV.. yes, Grandma has to be the cool one to provide the TV.... LOL

I will get that sent out to you in a few minutes!!!

We bought DD some many of the milk crates for storage... she actually brought that black ones home (I think we did 4 of each color, black and pink)...for DS to use for college... (we got them at Walmart for 2.97) and they are sturdy and actually have areas where they snap together so they don't shift when stacked!!!

Nan, thanks for the list! It will certainly help and he already has a few of the items. We re-did his bedroom last year with the intent that most of the stuff will go to school with him.

That is the best way to do things!!! That is actually what we are doing for DS16... He has bunkbeds...and they are do for new comforters... so my goal is to get 2 of the same so his rooms will match!!

Speaking of this.. I need to make his boutineer for prom... and I need to check my stash for a crystal adhesive Mickey or go buy a pack... (funny how certain topics trips the brain!)

Yeah, maybe if you had a wife, you'd have a reduced stress level

I guess I am in the minority and would say yes I would plan a trip. I see it as he is an adult now and he should be having lots of experiences without you. I mean I would still invite him on everything while he is home but while he is at school, he should be having a great time doing his thing.
