sigh ... my prom dress ... borrowed from my cousin, dyed-to-match shoes, and a size 5. those were the friggin' days, let me tell you.
but i digress.
in about nine hours the kids and i will be out the door on a six-hour adventure by ourselves to chicago. to meet marc. and then head to indy. and then marc and i head to boston. where i'll go to an art museum, an aquarium, a couple of walking tours, poke around concord and revolutionary war cemeteries, etc. while marc works. then we'll be back in indy. and we'll go to a ball game with my friend kimber. then the kids and i will go to my parents'. and marc will go to dallas. and then we'll come home.
and i will have lots of stories and photos. and maybe the energy and gumption to blog. cuz i just haven't been feelin' it lately.
but for now, all the laundry is done, bags are packed, toll money is gathered, directions to the hotel are printed, garbage is taken out, neighbor girl is on house- and cat-sitting duty, and i'm ready to go. to bed.
see ya on the flip side.
