A scattered disordered post



Now youngest is sick. she was up in the night vomiting twice....she isn't too bad today, but I just know that my sister had that sinking feeling in your stomach that you get when you have to fly with a possibly sick child. You start to look at them as potential disasters, ticking, just waiting to go off....

I haven't heard from her since she was in BCN airport where she called because she was so ecstatic to discover a playground next to her gate. Now how smart is that, eh?

We head back to Toronto in a week and a half without the man...he can't come until Aug. I am not looking forward to it on the whole. Too much work and hassle....thought that is lightened by the delight of seeing friends and family....the kids are pretty excited. I had a three hour nap this morning, partially because I kept staying up too late to talk to my sister, but I honestly wonder if I am storing up energy for Toronto...the schedule is going to be horrible.

I had planned to say something bright and descriptive and cheery about my sister's visit, but I think I am having a post-visit let down. I am also strangely weary, and blogger is driving me NUTS. It is as slow as molasses today and I have no idea why. It is taking me forever to do anything and making me as crabby as all heck.

Chuck found himself completely infatuated with my sister...in love...we aren't sure why he was so enamoured, but it was quite remarkable.

The girls caught this jelly fish at the beach, lovely isn't it...



The crate came for the dog's flight home, another source of worry frankly....good lord what happens if they lose him?



Here he is inside it. It's only for a bunch of hours...

Preparing for a trip can be fun - it can also be extremely stressful. Especially for the mother who generally ends up getting everyone organized. I feel for you!
At least your kids both got sick before the trip...and will be just fine for the big day.

Beth: Lets pray they are fine for the big day. Oh my goodness gracious me, I hope so...

We'll be in Toronto the 1st week of August-- we ought to think of having a coffee!

Why are you going to Toronto? There will be pictures, right? ;)

I LOVE YOU - and - I LOVED THAT WEEKEND!
We had so so so much fun - and the trip home was a dream.
Kids did not get sick and actually behaved themselves incredibly well and were total troopers.
I also had quite severe post-trip let down however - but luckily am very busy, and Dziadzio and Babcia decided on the spur of the moment to take the overnight bus and arrive on Monday morning at 7 am - so the excitement continues (and my angelic mother-in-law has taken care of all the post-weekend laundry!)
Wish I was coming back this weekend.
Love Me
