Normally, I would be annoyed that he is annoyed. But, I have to concede this time that he does have a point. The fact is, we are on the brink of not really seeing each other for the next three weeks! Prepare yourself to be bored or appalled at the insane Bitchin' Family Calendar:
I got to Wisconsin today to meet up with a certain other hawt lady blogger and we leave for Chicago on Thursday morning. Daddy-007 is bringing the kids to Wisconsin to on Friday for an overnight on the boat out on Lake Mendota. We will all meet at my sister's, in Chicago, on Sunday afternoon for a big family BBQ where all the little bitchin' cousins can run amock and we can get a chance to hang out before we move next month.
---now bear with me, this is where things start to get tricky---
We will drive back to Wisconsin all together on Sunday night. Monday, Daddy-007 will depart for a camping trip up in the Apostle Islands (a truly beautiful part of the world, if you haven't been) with at least two of the boys. That picture is of Bayfield, where you catch the ferry to Madeline Island, the largest of the Apostles.
Destructo, not a big fan of camping or swimming in freezing cold water, may or may not stay with me while I get an IUD put in my doc in WI. Whoopee. I'll be staying with a girlfriend, so Destructo should be fine and well-entertained while I convalesce . And I will be getting vicodin from the doc, so I should be fine, thanks for asking. :)
From WI, I will return to Iowa on Wednesday. Daddy-007 will get back from camping on Friday or Saturday..... Then he leaves for England on the 5th with his brother. He will have to get the sea container unpacked, buy a car, and get generally settled before we all arrive on the 16th. Phew.
In the meantime, I am staring down THIS:
Somehow, I need to figure out how I am packing a good portion of this mess into a suitcase (that I can manage) for the conference this weekend.
Sorry for the boring post, but there it is life. Now I'm going to get back to hugging, kissing, and squeezing my husband to let him know that I love him and will miss him and need him and can't live without him. :)
One more little thing (with apologies for how dark it is) a mini-video of me saying goodbye to my darling little Animal:
Look for me on Friday at Ann's Rants: I'll be letting my psyche hang out over there for her Free Association Friday.
I'll be uploading pictures to my flickr account (click the link over there in the sidebar) from BlogHer, if you want to stay on top of the madness! Here is my party schedule for the next three days:
Wish me luck!
