I hear that train a ' comin'......

Hi all,

Well in a few hours we'll be off to the airport . :(

Hubby heads back to England today. And I am left to do all the rest of this work by myself.

Also left with a refrigerator full of Thanksgiving leftovers and no one here to eat them.Believe me, I have no desire to eat one more bite of any of it!

Frazzle,frazzle. Whoo am I frazzled.

In 14 days the cats and I will be heading for England as well.

It's so hard to believe.

If I knew how to relax I'd be excited. But noooo....I have to be a nervous wreck instead.

My mind is like a blender full of all the stuff that needs to be done, and worry about my Visa , worry about being far from my kids, worry about the cats flight.Etc....

I swear, I need a vacation as soon as I get there.

But that won't be happening. I'll get there just in time to throw together our Christmas and not to mention the state of the apartment over there.

Let me refresh your memory......

It kind of makes me feel like I'm about to move into a hobo camp.

He missed his calling as an interior decorator.

One of the first things I must do is get a couch . I'm sorry ,but I am NOT spending long sitting on either one of those hideous lawn chairs.

Note to my spouse: Please make sure I have a computer by the time I arrive :)
Lest I wither up and die a hobo's death.

I better get up and get busy. It's 10 A.M. and I'm still sitting here in my pajamas.

Have a great day Peeps!

Luv me

You're down to the last minute (so to speak) before you say good bye to the old USA and hello to jolly ole England. I both envy and feel sorry for you. It'll be lonesome but what a marvelous opportunity!

I'll be following along on the trip and wishing you the very best. Meantime over the next two weeks I'll be cheering you on. Hang in there, Kid. The best is yet to be.

Can't believe it is only 14 days off. We will miss you guys a lot - just won't be the same round here. Hurry back. England will be great and I think y'all will have the time of your life. Be sure to see all the sights especially the Cotswold area, Blenheim Palace (where Winston Churchill was born), Warwick Castle and all that. Good luck on the Visa! G5

Just discovered your blog via your hilarious comment on my post today! By the way, thanks for that! Anyway, it looks like I got here in time to follow you as you begin a "grand adventure!" Like you, I become a nervous wreck before I embark on something big like this...but, if you call it a "Grand Adventure" you can almost psych yourself out! Good luck!

Forgot to ask... since he usually stays 2 weeks, was he going to Sweden the 2nd week before heading to England?
