Blog Neglect

I just wanted to write a quick post to say I'll probably be neglecting my blog for the next week or so. We leave for New Zealand in five days but three of those days we'll either be at Legoland or driving to or from Sacramento to take our dog to my mom's. I haven't even started to pack--let alone do the laundry so I've got my work cut out for me. I did manage to go salsa dancing again last night, though, and I can still walk today so I must be doing something right.

By the way, did I mention that I hate flying? I always expect the plane to crash. That's why I don't like to fly without Jerry. For some sick and twisted reason having him die in a plane crash with me seems better than leaving him without a mother. I know. I'm ridiculous. Now that we're getting so close to the flight I can't sleep at night which is making me tired, which is making me forgetful. Twice in the last week I've called someone and forgotten who I called when the person finally answered. I also went to the market with Jerry to get food for lunch and then came home and forgot to feed him. It was only when I told him I had made appointments to get our hair cut and we needed to leave right away that he said. "Uh, mom. We went to the store to buy food so we could eat it."

But soon we'll be in New Zealand and we'll have nothing to do but enjoy each other's company, explore a beautiful country and meet new people. I just need to take a deep breath and remember that. Ah. I can't wait.
