Ok, so maybe I'm not really THAT excited about it, but it seemed like I should shout it, so I did.  But here's the deal.  I'm leaving in the morning, but not until I have finished packing (cause I haven't yet cause I have been working and plus, I have to do laundry first.)  Then, I have to go pick up Jack from his scout camping trip this week.  Then, I have to get Lee to the football field to pick up his equipment for the season which starts the day after we get back.  Then I have to take the dog to my mother-in-law's house cause she's babysitting, then I have to pack up the car and pray that the check engine light that's on doesn't really mean anything's wrong after I already spent $350 fixing what was supposedly causing it to come on in the first place, but which didn't turn off the light except for the day when I picked up my car after having it repaired.

Then, I'll get on the road and drive to Ocala to see my mom, cause she hasn't seen any of us in a year and a half cause she moved to Ocala and still has the nerve to ask me every time I speak to her when she's gonna see me cause I never come see her and really, I don't want to see her cause, well, you know and if you don't, check here, and here, and here, and here, and here, and here...and those are just SOME of the reasons.  So anyway, I'm gonna take the kids to see her cause she's getting older and well, I just don't want to feel guilty about it and this should tide things over for another year or so.

And then, I'll drive to Kurt's sisters houses in Georgia and the kids will get to hang with their cousins and we'll have all sorts of adventures and I'll take lots of pictures and write lots of great posts :)

And then, I'll drive to Nashville and visit my stepdad aka: Dudley DoRight (click here) and my step brothers and my totally awesome girlfriend and her family and we'll have all sorts of great cocktails and talk until 2 in the morning and catch up and hug and cry and then I'll get back in the car and drive back to Georgia to Cindy's house (Kurt's sister) and we'll have more fun and adventures and then I'll drive home with two exhausted boys and a car load of dirty laundry and fun memories.  PHEW!  I'm thinking I'm gonna need a little pedicure and some mommy juice when I get back!
