We leave for Ireland TOMORROW! The two of us. Alone. We’re going to surprise Mam.

I think I may have been in denial. Or something. An inordinately long flight (well 2 of them) with a newly potty-trained 3 year old. On. My. Own. What was I thinking????? And now that I have my drivers license, we could have stayed here by ourselves, eating ramen and beans while the Hubby went off to Colorado to learn something, perhaps about space.

It’ll be fine. It’ll be fine. It’ll be fine. I have M&Ms, and stickers and a portable DVD player and all kinds of things. But there’s still a knot in my stomach. A BIG one.

The Turtle is super excited. I didn’t tell him until Wednesday, when there was “3 more sleeps”. He has laid out a plan for us. Apparently Uncle Norman will be bringing us all over the place. And we will see Granny and all of her friends. “And we will have fun. And Daddy will be working.”

“What is Ireland anyway? Is it a place to live?”

“Yes it is”

“And Granny lives there?….And they have a zoo in Ireland. And Norman will bring us. And we’ll laugh and laugh and laugh.”

Assuming we survive the flight……………
