The Countdown Continues

I am so busy running around trying to get everything finished before I leave – I didn’t realize I did so much each day. Just typing up the list of the daily stuff for the kids was exhausting but was a hearty rationalization and answer to that age old questions “what do you do all day?” in terms of stay-at-home-momhood.

I can’t wait to just get on the plane and get this going, it seems like it’s been going on forever. I guess in a way it has been, since the fall of 2004. How’s that for hard-headed and being in total denial? But the surgery has been planned since the Tuesday before Thanksgiving so that is a long time to think (obsess) about it.
