'Twas the night before flying....

....and all through the house, many people were starting to freak out.

The children were jumping on top of their beds, visions of mommy leaving them in their sweet heads.

The suitcase wasn't packed, the laundry wasn't done,

We were all feeling kind of bummed.

Away to Kroger I flew like a flash, throwing things in the bag I hoped wouldn't mash.

Now Isabella, now Anastasia, now Catherine, go to sleep,

because mommy's feeling stressed and she may take a leap!

Then what to our wondering eyes did appear,

my friend, Theresa, bringing snacks of good cheer.

I knew in a twinkling this night would soon end,

and we would be flying at 4 am.

You'll hear me exclaim as I fly out of Atlanta,

"Oh no! I forgot to pack my pajamas!

THANK YOU all for the support and caring and kindness!!! I could never do it without all of you!! I am taking my laptop and my camera, so I will be posting lots of pictures of our adventure!
