Outta here

So I got a call earlier today concerning my grandma in FL is not doing so well. So, I've been doing laundry and packing all day so the peanut and I can head on down. We have a butt crack of dawn kind of flight tomorrow and I live an hour from the airport so I'm staying with my sister tonight who lives within 2 minutes of it. My husband won't be able to go as he has to work so please pray for patience and strength for me this next week. It is ridiculously hot in Tampa right now and I am so tired and hot anyway, it is probably going to be a bit draining for me. We want to spend as much time as we can with my grandma (whom we affectionately call Bossy) so we'll just make it work. My sister and her two kids are going too and we are able to stay with my other grandma while we are there, which is a total blessing. She also is letting us have her car for the week so we are thankful not to have to pay for hotel or ground transportation, besides gas. The tickets about killed us, since it was such short notice, but what do you do?

Anyway, I'll see you all next week and hope you have a good one!

Oh Amy! So much news since last we spoke! I am so sorry to hear about your grandma. We lost my Granny in May, so I can certainly sympathize.
Of course, I peeked at your wordpress blog first and the quote I like best was:
"1. Potty Training. The peanut has gone on the potty more times in the past week than ever before. At least once a day, sometimes 3 times a day. This is movement, which in anyway is great this time! Go girl!"
And I just couldn't help but think... yeah... movement one way or the other! Love, love, love that our potty training days are over.
And now I read that you are expecting a brother or sister for the Peanut and I am so happy for you! Nausea aside, what a blessing!
Hope you are having a safe trip and we'll chat when you get back.
