Craziness

Wow, its been "awhile" since I posted. Well, awhile for me. :)

I've been feeling a little frazzled lately. We're heading up to Washington on Wednesday and getting ready for that is making me feel a little stressed. Just a little. Because there's only so much you can do until right before you go--like packing. I wanted to pack yesterday, but then realized we would have no clothes to wear the rest of the week. Plus then I'd have to do all our laundry right then. Sheesh, stupid laundry! But anyway, we finally came up with a tentative plan for what we'll do up there. I'm sure all of you don't plan your trips, but we have a lot of people who are just fighting over us and.... Okay, not fighting over us, but we have a lot of people we want to be around. Its gonna be so fun, we have planned to go to Seattle one day and to a pumpkin patch, to the ocean (or atleast the Sound--if you don't know what that is, man! go google it), plus we're having quite a few family dinners we're stoked about, and we're planning to go eat some real seafood--yum! Its going to be so fun to be home and be with our families, the drive there and back, not so fun. Hopefully it won't be horrible with a five month old, wish us luck!

On a side note, we took a break from "getting ready" for our trip and I got to meet up with my Grandma and Grandpa, my Aunt and her family, and my Uncle and his family. Oh, before that we had to take Sam to the doctor and get this, the poor boy has a clogged tear duct causing him a yucky eye infection, and on top of that he has an ear infection! Poor baby! I feel bad, you can tell he's not feeling good and I hate that! So anyway, I met with all my family and it was so nice, I hadn't seen my uncle since he got married six years ago! I was like four months pregnant with Bethany at the time, crazy! He has a BEAUTIFUL little girl, that looks just like him with long curly hair--and maybe a tiny bit cuter! :) We went to Chuck-A-Rama, and before you guys knock it, I don't care, because I like the Chuck-A-Rama, so there. You won't sway me, its just the way it goes. On the down-side, Maddie all of a sudden wasn't feeling good and fell asleep, slept the whole way up there, the whole time we were eating, the whole way back and I finally woke her up back at my Aunt's house to take same medicine because she felt a little warm. Guess what? Yeah, she threw up. Nice huh? So Sam's not feeling good and neither is Maddie. Honestly, I'm just glad its happening now and not the 14 hour drive up to Washington. I hope they feel better soon, I don't know how much longer I can go on without any sleep (Sam's kept me up the last three nights, I'm exhausted).

So, all in all, really good day.

But also.....ummmmm....pray for me? I really need it....

9 awesomeness!...and attractiveness!:

Have a fun trip, and hope you get some sleep. I'm a little jealous, because I've wanted to go back to Seattle forever, and we never find the time... Have fun!

Oh girl! You are going to have fun and if it does go a little crazy at least you will have good stories to tell. We will have to swap stories about our trips when you get back. Can't wait to hear yours. Later and drive safe..... can't say that enough.

I am feeling lonely already. I am praying for you that the kids will be well and cooperate with the long drive. Been there, done that, not so much fun!
