My handy-dandy Sitemeter tells me that quite a few of you are checking up on me, yet I know I’ve not been very faithful to fill you all in on what’s going on. You're not going to get much of an update now, but needless to say I’ve had just a few things to do, not the least of which is spending every possible second enjoying Alyssa and Parker. Before last Thursday I was pretty sure I had everything under control and was ready to go. Now that we actually have our tickets (yes, the FedEx man delivered them today!), I’m feeling a little less confident. I know the major stuff is done, and if the last few items on my list don’t get checked off, we’ll survive. However, the perfectionist in me wants to have every last detail wrapped up, and to leave a clean house behind too! So what am I doing tomorrow to prepare? Going to Disneyland of course! Chances of us making it back there in June are not great with a new baby at home, our annual passes are blacked-out in July and August (and who wants to go with the crowds anyway?) and Alyssa starts Kindergarten mid-August. So, the paperwork and lists can wait, the cleaning can wait... my kids need to visit the happiest place on earth! (And mommy could use the distraction too!).

I know what you mean, Laura. I keep going over and over the things I need to do, and actually get some of them done each day. But I have this realization down in the pit of my stomach that we are going to be gone 2-3 weeks, my kids are going to be here, and when we come back all will be different. I'm glad (not about the separation), but I'm a little anxious too.

You know what I always said:
Cleanning and packing can wait
'til tomorrow,
'cause children grow up--much
to our sorrow...
So settle down cobwebs, bags
go to sleep,
We're off to Disneyland,
'cause babies don't keep!!!
Thanks for letting me join you!!
Love, Mom

Yes, go for the fun! Life is way too stressful and goes by too fast for cleaning to be top priority! I can't believe you're finally getting to pick Reagan up, that's so wonderful! I just got back from 2 weeks in Virginia, babysitting my 1, 3, and 5 year old neices and nephew. Fun, but I definitely love my teenagers!

I think that Disneyland sounds like the perfect distraction from packing stress and make a special memory with your kids too.
