packing, trying not to forget anything ...doesn't feel like vacation to me

We are leaving for vacation in 9 days. We are renting a house in the mountains.

 

My problem is that I still don't get a "vacation" sure we will be away from the house but I still get to cook and I still have to pack and make sure we have everything.

 

My DH doesn't know why I am stressed. He doesn't get all he has to do is throw the stuff in our van and sit back and relax. While I get to do the normal stuff on vacation.

 

Does anyone feel like that? I love our family vacations but it feels like so much more of a hassle than it is worth

We just got back from a week in myrtle beach.  I have three little ones that are 6, 4, and 3.  I know what you mean.  The only thing that helped me was that the kids' grandma went along.   I was able to relax when she was watching the kids.

the last time my husband packed his own stuff...we were in st. thomas with no underwear or swimsuits. needless to say he packs his stuff and i have to check it because he is very forgettful.
