Leaving on a Jet Plane...

Don't know if I'll be back again!

I can't wait until Friday.  That's the day Faith and I head out to California to meet up with some pretty special people.  I am excited and nervous all at the same time.  I hate flying. HATE it.  Scares me to death. But, with a little help from my friends (aka, benzodiazapines) I think I'll be fine.

It's going to be a whirlwind trip,  leaving Friday, returning Tuesday night.  But, it will give a great start to Spring Break...when I will have the kids ALL home with  me  until April 5th.  Oy!

I plan to bring my laptop to post pictures from our trip, but I may just be having way too much fun to sit down to do that.

I need to tackle my mile long list of things to do before I leave.  I have so much to do I don't even know where to start.  Of course, I have to clean my house like I am nesting because I do NOT want to come home to a house that needs cleaning...and I had to farm out 5 kids to stay with family/friends and now I have to pack.  15 bottles of Faith's Pediasure and 30 packets of thickener will certainly give my back a workout hefting that through the airport!

Signing off...busy, busy!

Edited to say:  Faith returned to the hematology/oncology clinic on Monday...her ANC went from 0.9 to 1.9 with the help of neupogen!  Ideally, the doc would like her above 2.0, but she made the "safe zone" at 1.9.     We'll be seeing the doc again when we return to keep check on her ever changing counts.  But, for now, she's good!


  1. We can't wait!!! Although I hate to break the news that we are one of the last few people who don't have wireless yet so not sure about the laptop....guess we can go to Starbucks!! about you don't lug your laptop at all and just use my computer when you want. One less thing to carry!!

  2. Good to know, thanks Denise! I'll take you up on using yours then :) My family and friends are anxious to see pictures on FB! And even without a laptop, I think a trip(s) to Starbucks is ALWAYS in order, wink wink!

  3. Can't wait!!! We leave Friday night and come home Monday night so it's going to be a whirlwind for us too! I'm still debating if I want to bring my laptop, probably not, Addy has enough of her own junk!

  4. Ohhh! I can't wait to meet you and Addy, Cammie!!!
