Ka Bam!

Happy Mother's Day to everyone!

I was all set to write a mother's day post, which I will write (late as usual), but, suddenly, it hit me, really, really hit me. We are leaving in 6 days!!! I have been running around so much, making lists and loosing the lists, that I don't think I really believed we were going to go. I still have so much to do. I absolutely have to dye my hair. I am not going to Eastern Europe with my roots showing. I've got to get a new bra because, well, what if there is an accident? I can't have international people seeing my old brown bra with a tear in the side! Part of me wants the time to zoom by, and part of me wants time to go slowly. I can't believe we are going to see our two babies!! I can't believe we are going to leave our babies for weeks!!

In other exciting news:
Catherine has been pretty naughty lately. Today, while she was in time-out, I asked her, "Catherine, were you acting rudely?"
"Just a little bit, Mommy." she stated.

My wonderful 16 year old son wrote me a poem for Mother's Day. It made me cry.
"When I am blue, talking to you makes me feel brand new.
You buy me news shoes and what you always say is true.
I remember when you had the swine flu, it didn't matter to you, you
still cared about everyone. You would have defended me from a bear.

You are the best mom ever and always remember: I LOVE YOU!"

In other big exciting news, the yellow dress will NOT be accompanying me on our trip. Yes, believe it or not, I actually went shopping and got another dress. I will post pictures tomorrow. I know, such a cliff hanger. I'm sure all of you are on the edge of your seats!


  1. I won't be able to sleep tonight!

  2. What color is the new dress? New dress and new bra, wow lucky you. hehehe

  3. Hehe, wow, you're really classing it up, aren't you?! Hair, dress, bra- WOWZA!!! ;)

    I'm so excited for you!!
