Random Tuesday Thoughts

Hurray for Random Tuesday, a super cool place created by Keely @ "The Un Mom", head over and check out the coolest graphics in the bloggisphere! She makes me want to read comic books and dream about Canadian bacon.


I'm flying to Asia on Friday - for two weeks. But first I'm flying to Texas on Wednesday to drop the kids off at their grandmothers (leaving husband home to work on projects).


I'm . finally . done . packing !!!!!!!


I'm so tired from packing and considering every possible thing that could go wrong when flying with 6mo and 2 year old BY MYSELF that I'm actually looking forward to the 13 hour flight to Japan BY MYSELF! Followed by a 2 hour layover and then a 5 hour trip to Hong Kong. Guess they are as far apart as our East coast is to our West coast.

Now I only have one day left to freak out about all the things I may have forgotten and try to cram more stuff in (I checked and the main bag is still under 50lbs), call Barnes and Noble and see if they have Madame Tussaud's book in yet, download more stuff from iTunes to entertain self and Charlotte, pack snacks, ship breast milk to Texas, make muffins for trip - yes this is important and and and I'm sure I'm missing something...

Have fun on your trip! Sounds like your husband has the perfect deal: home alone without kids? Nice. Happy RTT.

Hope the trip goes well for all of you. Hope you don't forget anything important.

I crave all time spent by myself. Husband take the kids to grandma's for the day, times I was at the hospital after giving birth to a baby, medical/dental appt., physical therapy/chiropractic appt., trips away alone or with friends.

I will be thinking of you as you make the trip with kids to TX. If I can do three, all mobile, in the car for 4 to 5 hours by myself, you can make it in an airplane with two. I can't imagine what it's going to be like when I have three potty trained. Might be easier, but that time is coming soon. Sounds like you have everything they need. Just don't forget their security (favorite blanket, etc.) stuff. I did that once. Worse trip ever to my mother and dad's. Ugh!!

Have a wonderful trip! I hope it is awesome! If you are not taking the kids and you aren't taking hubby, I'm assuming it's business??? Or are you going for two weeks of adventure by yourself? Either way, have a great time!

More important that I think anything else on your trip...safe travels. Enjoy the alone time, even if there will be a lot of work related time in there too. :)
