When I'm done putting everything in storage and detailing the house I'll pack everything we need for the next month or so in the back of my pickup and head north myself. That trip is going to be two days, I plan to stop in Portland overnight. My pickup is in amazing shape, but it is nearly 30 years old so I don't wanna overload the poor thing.

Anyway, the move is taking shape and starting to feel real. It will be even more so after the kid and cats are out of the way and I can do some serious packing.

We've also been discussing how many trips to Disney we can fit in over the next few months and weighing the drive or fly options.
Hey! I work in Bothell...if you ever want to meet for coffee, lunch, or a drink I'd love to meet you!!

Enjoy the driving adventure!!

Wendy so sorry to hear that your family is being touched by this terrible illness. The DIS is a very caring place and you have many friends here to support you .... even those of us who have yet to meet you.

Happy Friday!! I hope everyone has a great weekend. I booked our room at the Donatello last night, I know nothing about this place but it looks nice and should be fun. We are staying on points so all we have to pay for is the parking fee....which is $28! :O I had no idea but I would have booked it either way. lol So I think Sunday we will go to Napa for lunch and wine tasting, then head to SF and check in, eat somewhere in the city for dinner and then on Monday I'll take Micah to the AoS (we probably won't have time for the WDFM so I'll save that for another day) and to Hog Island Oysters and then head for home. Should be a nice little get away.

Happy Friday, everyone! I'll be offline all weekend - we'll be down in the Bay Area for a big birthday bash for Russ' aunt. Then I'll be back on Monday and offline again Tuesday and Wednesday as I head back down to Anaheim with a friend of mine and her daughters. Can't wait!

Have a great weekend, everybody!

Will be praying!!
Thank you, Kelly. Can we upgrade coffee to vodka?

Thank you, Lisa. I keep thinking about our trip on the canoes and it makes me smile. My mom just did NOT want to be on those things.

Thank you, Tina. It is very scary. My mommy is my best friend, and I don't like that she is going through this.

Thank you, Cristabel. So scary to have our mom's go through this kind of thing.

Thank you Linda. Cancer sucks, big time. Why does it have to exist? I want to kick it in the bum.

Thank you, Cheryl. The surgery isn't scheduled yet. They are hoping to do it next week or the week after at the latest. She has to get a few more tests done before they proceed, so we're waiting on the clinic to make 3 appointments, and I was able to get an appointment first thing Monday morning for my mom's EKG.

Thank you, Trudi. She really enjoyed spending time with you and telling all her stories about me.

Good luck. My mom was diagnosed with uterine cancer years ago, she had a complete hysterectomy and ended up not needing the chemo. She's been cancer free for over 10 years now. I hope your mom's results are as good, and will keep thinking happy thoughts for her and your family.

I made it back this afternoon! The cats survived the trip, although I almost strangled them around Portland. I'll be up there myself in a couple of weeks, once I get settled in we'll try to get in touch, that would be fun.

Continued prayers to you. Thinking about you all the time and hoping things go smoothly and that she recovers quickly!

How's everyone? Welcome to all the newbies!

Life is just crazy, just dealing with things about my mom. It still doesn't seem like she passed away 3 weeks ago. But I had a great visit with my brothers & sister & nieces & nephews. But Washington to Oklahoma is a VERY LONG DRIVE!! But I do have to say, Southern people have the best attitude & so very polite and welcoming.
I am so very ready for it to be February!!
