Countdown Week

Well folks, this time next Monday we will be standing in line at the airport to board a plane to Florida and begin the family journey around the world!  I had this dream last night where I was at the airport alone with the kids getting ready to board our flight when I realized the passports were still an hour away in Salem.  Ah, night terrors:  a sure sign that life is about to get exciting again!

Today feels like one of those roller coasters you ride because they include the fastest/largest drop(s).  Everything coming up to the featured thrill is anticipation, and that is what I feel the most of today.  We're not completely packed, and I've pretty much given up on the concept of "packing everything we need".

I have been thinking about you a lot. As I was shoveling snow just now I envied the simple life you are about to enter. Treasure every moment of it. I miss you already!

Wow, I can't believe it is almost exciting! Will you continue to post while you are away?
