Well, it's off to Cali in 8 hours- thank you to GJ who is coming at 6bells. A huge thank you to our family (and friends) who are helping watch the boys while we are gone. We greatly appreciate it!!! In addition, thank you so much for our travel goodies, cards, and xmas gifties: Lynn Taetsch/West Bend Mutual (Claims & Legal dept), Koos for Kids (Brewer's Marcus & Jill Hanel), Our family, Godmommy Bev, Tracy Rabata, Pre-School/Kim Steinberg, and Manny's girlfriend Laney Panich and his future mother-in-law, Staci.
It has been smooth sailing this time around and I have been rather organized and calm. Until of course, 24 hours prior on Friday the 13th. I started freakin about our wills, how they haven't been updated since Eli was born, and what would happen to Abe if our plane went instead of packing or sleeping, I spent the day and night writing legal documents with the help of my attorneys (my sis, my dad!). What a whack job.
Today, Manny got to play basketball with his buddies and then went into anti-germ isolation at home (like he has all week) while I went and watched Eli at his basketball tournament. We had a slew of family come say goodbye to Manny at night. We were packing. Chilling. And then, naturally, Abe jumps off of the fireplace ledge, and sends his 4 front teeth flying through his bottom lip. So, with 10 hours until Cali, we headed to the ER for stitches. I must say, I hated it and loved every minute of it. I got to spend 2 hours just holding him and being there for him and I'm glad I was able to be the one there. Thank you to Grandma Sue who got him new pjs as his old ones were bloody. Abe said "now I go to doctor like Manny, I have boo-boo too." Of course, now he can't swim with Aunt Val this week due to stitches (which was the one thing we kept getting him excited about for the last few days)....they'll have a back-up plan I'm sure!
It's time to get on that plane, get on with it, and get back home!! Here's to getting some sleep tonight!
Tuesday is surgery day and another TMHTM t-shirt day....!!!! If you have one - sport it and text/email/facebook a picture so we can show Manny!! :)
