Carmen's Going Skiing

My living room looks like all the closets in my house exploded.

There are clothes, boots and coats everywhere, as well as suitcases of different sizes. The reason for this chaos is that Carmen is going skiing next week with her class; I never knew you could need so much stuff for 5 days. But considering that this child gets soaked just by looking at snow, we thought fit to put in at least double of everything as the number of days.

There's also a dance on the last day, and there'll be boys at this dance, which means she insists on taking a party dress and shoes (as any real girl would). So, now I have a living room full of clothes to be labeled (almost finished) and last minute laundry to to, and finally we have to cram it all into a reasonably sized suitcase. And all this before 3:30 tomorrow afternoon.

Will we accomplish our "mission impossible"?  Tune in tomorrow and find out.


  1. I wish I could see it! It is wonderfull that she gets this oppertunity to go skiing.I hope she has a really good time.

  2. Wow, interesed in Boys. I can hardly believe it, but of course the time had to come.
