OMG! I only have 19 sleeps 'till I fly out to the good ole US of A!!!!!! Excited, stressed, excited, stressed... that's how I feel from one second to the next! before I go I have to put up my Christmas tree, go Christmas shopping, catch up with loved ones that I wont see for a whole month, spend time with my Geds, work right up to Christmas eve, enjoy Christmas day, and pack, OMG, pack! I'll be leaving summer to go to winter, and then I'll be off to LA and Vegas where the weather will be a lot more mild! I guess my only solution is to not pack much and then shop my heart out when I get there!
It's my first new years without the big stinky one (Maddison) When Madds was with us, we either couldn't leave home or we had to be pretty close by - Madds HATED thunder and fireworks, the vacuum, any loud noise at all, If we weren't home at 12 o'clock on New Years, we knew the next day would be cleaning, Madd's destroyed the laundry! but if we didn't lock her in there, she'd be gone! So it will be nice not to have the worry of Madds in the back of my mind - although I'm sure I'll think of her once or twice through out the night!
The other worry is Steve! When I first organised the trip, Steve and I were barely talking, in fact, I couldn't think of anything I'd rather do that be away from him for 3 weeks! Now, it's the last thing I want to do, I'll miss him so much! although I do think this will be good for us.
But, hello, Times Square New York baby! With my Mummy, Dougie and my little sister Maz! Look at that!
