We're OFF!!

Hello everyone! Well, it's been awhile once again. Long story short... the kids got the virus the day after after Michael came down with it. Which, if you are following the natural chain of events means I got it as well. I was the sickest of all... it took me almost 9 days to completely recover, which thoroughly sucked. But, I'd much rather it be me than my one of my babies so I guess things work out for the best. Still sucked, though. Anyway... sorry I have not read any of your blogs lately. Just know I am having withdrawal, so I'll do my best to catch up on them soon, I promise!

Anyhoo... in better and drastically more exciting news.... we are leaving first thing tomorrow for Park City, Utah for our long awaited Ski trip!! WooHoo!! We are going with all of our closest friends and sans kiddos, so there should be some good times and plenty of great pics to follow!

While I am really exited, I am having a surprisingly hard time leaving Big Al and Dub. Most days I would kill to get an afternoon away, let alone score a whole night to myself. But when it comes down to it, it just gets...well...strange for me. This is the first time I have been away since Allie was 9 months old. Today we had the sobering task of updating out Will and preparing the power of attorney. I tell ya, all the 'what if' details just made me cry like a baby. That coupled with the fact I could greatly benefit from a bottle-and-a-half of Xanax with a Valium chaser in order to board a plane calmly makes for a tearful day... but I'm sure I survive. No jokes though... I friggin' hate to fly! I always have. Funny considering my brother-in-law is a pilot, and a darn good one at that. Nothing personal... love ya, Chris... but planes... not so much. The noises, the recycled air, the engine failure, o.k., enough of that.

So... we're off! We'll be back on Monday, and with any luck I'll be fully intact with no sprains, broken bones, concussions, or stories of having my life flash before my eyes as the plane spiralled wickedly out of control... Hmmm... just where is that bottle of Xanax????

Y'all have a great week!!!

So sorry you got the bug, but atleast you got it out of the way before your trip. It also took us several days to recover from it...brutual I tell ya!!

Maybe your fear of flying came from our trip to California with DECA? I remember one of the teachers got sick on the plane from all that turbulance over the rockies-I wasn't far from it myself! I hope you had a safe and enjoyable trip. Can't wait to see pictures.
