So long, farewell, Auf wiedersehen, adieu

Well... we're about to be off. We have (almost) proved that it is possible to put an offer on a house, pack up one house, close on another, move about 75% of our stuff to the new house, and pack for a 17 day trip overseas, all while wrangling two kids, diabetes and a dog... and do it all in a two week time period.

Wanna know something crazy? We also tried to have new carpet installed at the new house. It didn't work out. I'm okay with that.

I think I have one strand of sanity left, and I fully expect it to snap at the airport when some jerkwad of a TSA agent decides that the apple juice I'm trying to take through security is a threat to national security. I can see the headline now... "Local woman goes crazy at airport - punches TSA agent in the nutsack".

Anyway, the ol' blog won't be totally silent. I have some re-posts scheduled. Maybe a few new ones. And if you want to hop over to my other blog, I'll be posting pictures and trip updates there.

Don't miss me too much! Okay, miss me... it's good for my ego.

And just as an FYI:
*** I've heard rumours that there are people who search blogs and facebook pages to find people who are going to be away, and then break into their houses. Fair warning: our neighbour knows we are going to be away and he'll be watching. He's ex-military, has family members who are cops, plus he owns a bunch of guns and is just dying for an excuse to use one of them. I'm just sayin'.

It IS Texas, afterall... YEE_HAW!


  1. Adieu, adieu to you and you and you!!!
    Although I would totally love to see the news footage about you punching the TSA agent, I sincerely hope you are able to breeze through security!
