I'm leavin' on a jet plane...

Tonight, Allison and I will be heading to NY for my cousin's wedding. We are singing together in the wedding which is a dream come true for me, although I admit our rehearsals have been more of the nightmarish variety. We have been crazy-excited about this trip for months. I will get to see people I haven't seen in ages, including Gingersnapspice and finally get to meet Karen. I am thrilled at this opportunity that Allie and I have to spend this one-on-one time together. We need it, I think.

Right now though, my mood is one of frantic nervousness that we won't be ready to go. As usual, I have saved too much for today and my mind is spinning with all I have to do. I am also developing growing anxiety about leaving behind Brandon, Ben, Clara and The Man (aka husband and father extraordinaire) for 4 entire days. I guess that's natural though. It's typical of maternal pride to think no one can take care of our children quite as well as us.
So off I go! First to pack and clean and shop for the loves I am leaving behind. And then on a plane, to see others I love very much. Life is good.
See you Monday.
Edited:
I don't have time to post about this, but it is weighing on my heart like a stone that while I am preparing to jet across the country for a vacation, Whymommy is dealing with a new diagnosis of breast cancer at age 34. Age 34. Please read Slouching Mom's post on the topic and because I know I am friends with many fierce, and faithful prayer warriors, I ask you to pray. And maybe drop her a line of support.

Do you know that when you click "Karen" it goes to my place? You might need to fix that, though i wish we WERE meeting! Where in NY will you be going?

It is hard to leave the ids behind, but I bet you'll have a wonderful time on your trip.

Safe travels!
