Really, I'm leaving later......

We're almost ready to leave. Well, Elena's not dressed, but we are packed. Not loaded up, but packed. I don't know if I mentioned, I hate flying. I used to love it til I was on a flight that had to make an emergency landing, with us in crash position and fire trucks and ambulances parked on the tarmac. People were crying on the plane and barfing, I think from them turning the air circulator off. We had to break the heels off our shoes (I didn't, I would never wear heels on a plane), remove out glasses, etc. Of course, I'm still here so all was well, but still. I've flown many times since and it's always the same. I never take my seat belt off, avoid the bathroom at all costs, don't sleep, just sit and stare straight ahead. I always have a severe headache after the flight. This is Elena's first flight and I'm nervous as hell.

Anyway, the child who won't eat chugged 1/16th of a bottle of Chloraseptic last night while I was packing. She claimed "it tastes good and I was thirsty". Of course, I freaked out and she was sobbing, screaming etc. She's fine, but still, she's never, ever done anything like that before. It was just the icing on the cake ya know. Things will be better today---

Anyway, I bid you all farewell for now. I will miss you. I promise not to bore you with all the details of my trip and pics when I get back. A week away will give me time to think up something interesting, I hope.

So keep hooking, love each other and look for the silver lining-

Til next week........
