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!
