Well folks, this is it. Tomorrow morning (or I should say later this morning!) we will be boarding a plane to Pittsburgh. With a short layover in Denver. Kiki is so wound she is alternately talking a million miles an hour or crying. It didn’t help her stress level that Alan and I were at each other’s throats as soon as he got home from work! Later he apologized and said "I’m just a jerk". I did not disagree. It was all about what he "perceived" that I should have gotten done vs. what actually did get done and what still needed to be accomplished. It’s like it’s never good enough, no matter how much I do and how hard I try. Seriously, am I the only person who gets some stuff done at the very last moment? Is everyone else packed 24 hours early, and every little chore, task and point on the "to do" list is taken care of at least 2 days before leaving?? I do not believe that. I am sure some people are more organized than I (I had to make a last-minute run to the market tonight at 11pm!) but I am also the ONLY person around here preparing for the trip!! I feel like I did a pretty dang good job, so I’m not feeling guilty about it. Just irritated.
On a bright note, Alan got his test results back (on the heart stuff) and he has a normal, healthy heart. Good news! Kiki was hoping that meant we could quit this boring healthy eating crap, lol. Alan is being very good. Almost too good. He’s getting this "holier than thou" attitude and honestly, I’m getting tired of being told how to eat and how to feed my child. No, we’re not doing "as good" as him, but it’s a thousand times better than it was!! Besides, she is a young growing child who can do with a bit more than we grown-ups…
Can you tell my husband has really been getting on my nerves lately?? I guess we really need a vacation! Hope this does the trick!
I would appreciate everyone’s prayers, for safety, good health, lots of fun, and that our animals do fine. Thanks.
I don’t think I will be getting online at all during our trip, so farewell for now! Take care, stay safe, and I will "talk" to you all in about a week!
