see ya!

I'm fixin to be one of "those girls" and ditch all of my friends to go hang out with the dude I'm seeing. Lord willing, I will be picking my husband up from the airport sometime in the next 12 hours and from there, he and I are headed out on our first vacation alone together since December of 2004 for half of his R&R. This will actually be the first time we ever flown together. That's going to be weird. I'm very particular and have a stringent routine about how I go through security so he's most likely going to get annoyed with me. And I'm sure that will only be the first time I'll be on his nerves during this trip. It should be a good time though. It's been a LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG nine and a half months since he left and we need this. Dang it, we deserve this.

Thanks to all who are making this trip possible for us by allowing us to freeload off of you: the grandparents for taking care of the kids for the next week, my aunt and her friend for the plane tickets, my aunt and uncle for letting us stay with them for a couple days and setting up a fishing charter for us (or as my best friend T calls it, being a bath toy for the whales) and to T for letting us stay with her for a couple of days too, even though she's 9 months pregnant and admittedly cranky. I promise I will try not to get on your nerves too and I will bring a peace offering of mayo and Texas toast. Crap, that means I have to go to the store and get the toast. I forgot. Ok, I will bring a peace offering of mayo and spend the $13.25 to send you 2, $2.10 bags of Texas toast in the mail once we get home.
