like john denver on crack

We are getting ready to take off for some glorious sun laden adventures. I am running around ferociously packing bags, finding passports and quietly unpacking a few odd items M has put in her own case (she's off to the grandparents for a week or so of relentless adoration) and on top of it all have gotten sick.

Sick before vacation? A pox on that, vacation gods. But otherwise life is good. And some sun can't hurt, right? I'll squeak out one last post before we hit the friendly skies and then I'll be tossing internet capacity to the winds and will blow in and out and around (blogging in foreign places while holding a beer, anyone?)

Sounds glorious (well, not the sick part, but you knew that)! Enjoy!

Julie Pippert said...

Have a wonderful time, you.

And spare me a good thought or two if you have one around 10:40 CST tomorrow morning.

The EPA granted me five minutes to testify about the harmful effects of pollution at the hearing tomorrow.

You will have such a great time. I know it.

I was laid-out-on-the-couch sick with strep on the even of the last time we went to Mexico for a four-day getaway sans kids (were you really three years ago, dear vacation?) But I downed antibiotics and dragged my sorry carcass on that plane and you know what? It was the best time.

Don't worry about us, we'll carry on without you, somehow.

Have a wonderful time.
