Countdown

2 days, 7 hours til we leave for Utah. Yes, we are leaving the house at 5:30 AM Wed. so we have time to get to the airport, park, drag the children through security, have breakfast, tire them out and board for a 7AM flight to Utah, where all my children will immediately fall asleep and stay that way for 5 hours til we land. Are you there, God, it's me, Elyse. Did you get all that?

Today we laundered every piece of clothing in the house, down to the last little dirty sock. In fact, we are sitting here naked watching the Superbowl as our beloved Giants have just given up a touchdown and are down 14-10 with under 3 minutes left in the game . AAAAAGGGHHHHH!

OK, pause for a moment. We just saw the most disgusting commercial. The one where a big, dirty ole tow truck driver attaches jumper cables to his nipples to charge the car battery for a woman whose car is dead. GROSS!


All the kids' clothes are packed. The electronics are charged. Olivia has 2 new movies to watch on the plane, luggage tags are filled out, our clothes are laid out and ready for placement in suitcase.

So we are almost ready for our trip - logistically speaking. I am not ready, however, for all the anxiety I will undoubtedly feel about how many dirty looks we will get and about whether I will have the ability to ignore them and not cause a scene on the plane and have us all kicked off. I WILL be refilling my Xan.ax prescription before we leave.

WOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!! Giants made an amazing play!

OMG - touchdown! SCORE! 17-14. PLEEEEZ hold on, Big Blue, pleeeeeeeeeez!

Gotta go, having a heart attack. Update tomorrow - maybe.

Too excited. Can't wait to go to Utah. EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

All I have to say is GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Giants!!! What a game! They rocked last night!!!!!!!!
Do not worry about what people think or say to you while you are traveling (plus I am sure they will all behave fine). You will never see them again anyway.

I screamed so hard that I scared my children. And those last few seconds seemed like an eternity.
GO GIANTS !!!!
I never thought it would happen !

Can't wait for you to get here.
We just loaded in a butt load of snow for your trip and should have 40 degree weather for most of your stay. It's going to be great !
