I'm Still Here!!

I know I've been a little quiet lately. Just a result of drawing nearer to our move date.

Today my kids and I were blessed to have a friend take them to the zoo with her kids. Not only do my kids need to get out of the house, but it's giving me a chance to get things done. Of course, here I sit blogging, so you can tell how that's going. LOL!!

No, seriously, I've spent the morning packing EVERYTHING trying to make sure we have enough room in our suitcases to take everything we are planning on taking. So far, it looks like we are ok. I think I'll need to pick up one more carry-on suitcase as we seem to be short one, but other than that, it's looking good.

Hubby wants me to pack a change of clothes and pj's and all other necessities in one bag, so that night we can just worry about finding the one bag (we arrive at 10 at night, then have to get through customs and luggage lines). It's a good idea, but I think it's probably better to have each of us pack those items in our own carry-ons. That way just in case our luggage mysteriously doesn't arrive with us, we'll have what we need for that night and the next day anyways.

Then this afternoon, I'm off to get my hair cut and highlighted. As I mentioned, Hubby likes it this way. Plus I could definitely use a little pick-me-up. With just two weeks to go, I'm getting more and more anxious to see him.

The first couple of weeks were horrible - missing him was like an omnipresent cloud hanging over me. Then we kind of settled into a groove. The last week or two it's gotten difficult again, knowing that we are so close to seeing each other. Each time we are scheduled to talk, I feel like a giddy schoolgirl with a crush, just all tingly inside.

Absence makes the heart grow fonder, you know.

I'll be back in full force soon, I promise. Thanks for hanging in there with me!!

See? We all told you you could handle it!! It took me a couple of weeks to get over myself when hubby went up north, too, but hey, only three more weeks for me!!! Woo-hoo! Glad you got a day to yourself for a change ~ sounds like it was productive and relaxing all at the same time!
