Well Bloggies, my week has gotten off to an interesting start. I’m a little heart broken, but not triggered or having any PTSD freak outs. Just really, really, really sad. I’m not going to go into detail but my heart is heavy and that’s all that really matters.
ANYWAY… aside from that, I don’t really have anything to talk about. lol. I got up this morning, did my WOD, picked up lunch on the way home and here I sit. Staring at my computer screen attempting to think of something witty to write. OH! I officially booked our flight to Seattle last night! *happy dance* I managed to work it out with a friend of mine and we get to fly out together! Whoo hoo! I don’t have to wrangle Nora all by myself on her first flight! I feel a lot better about it now. I mean I was confident about it enough before to want to go by myself, but it makes things SO MUCH LESS STRESSFUL knowing I’ll have some back up if she gets unruly.
I bought her the CUTEST little Owl backpack/kid leash thingy. I don’t care what everyone’s opinion is on the kid leash things, I like them. I think they’re a good idea, and will give me much more peace of mind while wandering around Denver and Seattle, two places where I’ve never been alone with my kid. Well not entirely alone, but still. Strange environment. You know what I’m trying to say. lol. If it makes me some horrendous and cruel mother, then I suppose that’s just what I’ll have to be. I think it’s adorable, and it’s an owl. She has a little owl jacket, a little owl back pack, and owl pi’s. She’s so stylish lol.
The only other thing I have to get before we leave is her State ID, and a carseat. She’s just going to be sitting on my lap during the flight, but we’re going to be traveling all over the city during our visit and she needs a seat. It’s actually less expensive to buy a seat and have it shipped to our destination as opposed to taking hers with us. I feel a little better about that too. I don’t know how I would feel about putting her in a carseat that had been haphazardly tossed into the cargo hold of an airplane. I may or may not buy a new duffle bag to take with us. I have one, but it doesn’t seem very sturdy. I don’t know. I’ll have to look into that.
My brain is filled with lists of things that I have to accomplish before we leave on this adventure. That, plus getting ready for Kevin and I’s anniversary trip, and trying to remember gym times? Ha! If you ask me a question, don’t be surprised if I just zone out for a second. lol. It feels good to have so much going on for a change. Well I say that now…. lol. Ugh… anyway. I should probably get up and do some housework. Until later Bloggies. 🙂
