Almost home!

7/28/2013 09:09:00 PM
So who wants to switch places with me?

Tomorrow is our last day in Ohio and today Mother Nature thanked us for coming to Ohio by giving us a day of FREEZING weather. (Toledoans - go ahead, complain about the weather. You have EVERY right. This month has been anything but summery.)

Tomorrow we will be packing.

ONE new car to be shipped.
FOUR boxes to be shipped. 
THREE suitcases to be packed.
ONE condo to be cleaned from top to bottom. (THANK YOU, BROTHER!)
SEVERAL loads of laundry to be done.
A FEW more stops to pick up last-minute "necessities."

Then, when all is said and done we'll be on our way back down the Baja Tuesday morning!

Agenda for Tuesday is:
3:30 a.m. EST (1:30 a.m. Cabo-time) - Wake up!
4:00 a.m. EST (2:00 a.m. Cabo) - Leave for airport with two toddlers (one sick one!), double stroller and 3 suitcases and two carry-ons.
4:30 a.m. EST (2:30 a.m. Cabo) - Arrive at airport
6:00 a.m. EST (4:00 a.m. Cabo) - Depart Detroit!

...two flights later...

11:20 a.m. Cabo-time (1:20 a.m.) - ARRIVE HOME IN CABO!

I truly can't wait to go home.
My bed.
Our dogs.
The sun.
Our family and friends who are like family.
Our life.

Viva Mexico.


  1. I hope you had a great time here! You seem to be an expert in flying with'll do just fine and so will they! I'm sure of it!

    This weather is perfection to me. Like California weather. Regardless, people around here just LOVE to complain about the weather, no matter what. It's too cold, it's too hot, it's too sunny, it's not sunny enough, it's too humid, it's too dry, where's the rain?, when will it stop raining? and on and on and on.

  2. Oh my goodness, good luck!

    I hope you all were able to have a wonderful time and got to ENJOY your vacation and relax....even with crazy Ohio weather and The Sneezer!

    Miss you all already and hope you have safe travels back home!

    (I actually loooove Ohio weather, well except that week it felt like it was 100)

  3. Hurry up, friend! We miss you... Cannot wait to see you guys and catch up... can we get together SOON?

  4. I do not know how you do it. Even the thought of all that packing, planning, moving, flying, shipping, etc. . . makes me want to hurl.

    You are a trooper. Your whole family are troopers.

    Happy Homecoming to you all! Rest up!

  5. I hope you have a safe and uneventful travel day!!

    Hopefully you had a nice time while here :)

  6. Ha! I'm reading all your vacation posts. It's so funny that vacation = Ohio for you. I remember that from when we lived in Charlotte. That's one reason we moved back up here... now vacation = Montana, usually.

    BTW, what kind of car did you get? New cars rock.
