looking forward

This weekend, the weather is just so wonderful. Especially yesterday...what a gift the warmth of the sun was!

I know you've all been so worried...and my lack of posts just added to the worry. I'm okay, really. I'm feeling more like myself everyday. And I'm getting ready to take the trip across country to pick up our little bird.

Both my sisters and my brother are coming with me...isn't that funny? Here's how it happened. I knew I wanted someone to come with me on the trip because I didn't know how I could manage doing things like carrying all the luggage through the airport with a little 2 year old in tow. I asked my sister Jennifer but then she didn't think she could go. So my other sister, Jessica, said she'd go. Meanwhile, Jennifer switched around some appointments so that she could, in fact, go. Okay, let's all go, we said. Then my brother heard about all this and wanted in on it too.

I'm pretty sure this is the only time in our lives that all of us have done something together sans parents, children, and/or spouses. It's going to be a blast...let's just hope Jennifer, who is afraid of bridges, doesn't get a panic attack as we go over the Golden Gate Bridge! "Is it a big bridge?" she asked.

Today, I'm getting stuff ready to do a dry-run of the class I'm teaching in May. I'm getting so nervous about it. I hope I don't disappoint all those nice folks who signed up. Maybe I can win them over with candy.

Is everything okay with little bird's father and family? Or is this just a grand vacation that you get to have with him? Tell your sister that the Golden Gate is a gorgeous bridge. She shouldn't panic at all. :-)

Not to worry, your class will be great. Wish I could be there. Do you even do online classes? I'm so glad you have a wonderful family to help you out.

Yes, we worry, but as long as we get the occasional message reassuring us, we are ok. And mostly, I want you to be ok. I am happy you have the baby bird for a while and hope that is just the best ever!
Blessings to you.
