See You in September

Any Bugs Bunny fans remember this one from Saturday morning cartoons?  lol  I won't be here for Caturday... so I had to put these in now!

I leave in about 7 hours.  I can't sleep.  The prednisone pulse I started has kicked in!  I will be fine... probably will get about 4 hours... that will be enough, and will help me sleep good at the hotel tomorrow night!

I hope that everyone has a great Labor Day Weekend, even those of you in UK and Canada, who are probably not off!

I will do an entry about my Uncle Larry's memorial another time, I just can't now.  My parents and Aunt Bea did get there and back safe.

I am going to do another Alphabet Meme that I found, and I hope that while I am gone some of you (ahem) will attempt to do it!  Leave me a comment so I know!

The Alphabet Meme - Things you did or happened today!

A  -  Advised Hammer, at his request, on a few things for his upcoming first date, on Saturday with GalPal!

B  -  Boarding passes printed out for the tickets.

C  -  Comforted my Aunt Bea with a long hug when she arrived this morning at 9:30am.

D  -  Dialed the hotel to confirm reservations for our adjoining rooms - all set!

E  -  Emptied medicine bottles down to just the needed few days, plus a couple, because you 'never know'.

F  -  Found my favorite travel tote bag that I thought was lost.

G  -  Gave lots of extra hugs and kisses to Hammer today because he will be here with Hubby, and I will miss him!

H  -  Hammer sat with myduring 'family tv time', which his siblings usually never let him do, but they know that he needed it tonight.

I  -  Issued the 'care of dog and cat' instructions on a large sticky note, and stuck it on the cabinet as a reminder!

J  -  Joined Hubby on the couch to watch 'Judge Judy' for a half hour before dinner.

K  -  Kissed Libby and the cats and pet them a lot!

L  -  Laughed at Fuzzy and Pumpkin's antics, and Hammer's jokes.

M  -  Muddled through the day, taking my time, and yet now, it seems to have flown by!

N  -  Napped for about 1 1/2 hours from 2:30 - 4pm, thank you kids!

O  -  Obsessed about forgetting things, as if going to Indianapolis, near relatives and with relatives, is like going to the dark side of the moon.  (reminding myself again, now, to chill-ax.  lol)

P  -  Packed 2 wheelie bags, one toiletries bag, and my travel tote (that my purse fits inside).

Q  -  Questioned kids about handheld video games to bring and books for nighttime reading, and subsequently packed them.

R  -  Realized that I made the right decision after my parents returned looking emotionally worn out from the 10 hour round trip and memorial/wake.

S  -  Set the table with paper plates for our quick dinner of pierogies with cheese sauce and frozen pizza (for Hammer and Fuzzy, they don't do pierogies) 

T  -  Talked to my Uncle Eddie, and either he or my Aunt Deb will be picking us up at the airport.

U  -  Understood that my Hubby is on edge, nervous about me leaving without him, and that is probably why he snapped at me earlier.

V  -  Ventured into the basement to do a load of laundry. 

W  -  Wished that Hubby and Hammer and the dog could all come on the trip, but know that this worked out for the best.

X  -  Excited to see some relatives that I haven't seen in a long time.

Y  -  Yukked it up, laughing at a hysterical email from Gaz!

Z  -  Zippered and unzipped the suitcases, over and over!  lol

See?  A fun meme. 

And now, I will head to bed, and attempt to get some sleep.  I have to get up at 6am to shower ahead of everyone!

Don't worry about me, I will be fine.  Got my meds, and my parents, and other family to watch out for me and help with the kids, so this should be a snap!

Behave while I am gone and have fun!

be well,
Dawn
