Back in New York

Well, I made it to Ohio! We only stopped once, mainly for lunch and to stretch our legs. Molly really did great. She had a couple outbursts in the backseat, but what do you expect for a 23 month old. I can not even believe she is almost 2! Where did my chubby reindeer baby go?? Now she is safe and sound with Grandma and Grandpa Ferguson, and Grandpa May (my dad). I know she will have fun, but I still miss her like crazy! Isn't it funny how much us SAHM's need a break, then when we get one, we would rather be back with our kids! I guess the break I am getting right now is not really a "break."

I arrived safe and sound in New York today. My flight was short and nice. I love flying! We pretty much have been watching TV, and laying around all day. Phil had another seizure yesterday, so that has zapped all of his energy. I am so glad the surgery is tomorrow. The anticipation is killing me, and all my teenage hormones that forgot to leave me! My face looks like that greasy girl in 7th grade that people would call pepperoni face! Oh well, what are you going to do but laugh and buy a ton of coverup!

We have a super early morning tomorrow...5am! Yikes! We are leaving the house at 5 and surgery is set for 7:15am. I will keep you all posted!

It has been so nice to read all of your blogs today. A much needed break from reality! I tried to comment on most of your blogs. If I didn't get to you today, don't worry, I will have a long day tomorrow to read everyone's! Thanks for your prayers and have a great night! We are about to eat pizza, that is my mom's homecookin' for ya!

I'm glad you made it safe and sound! I don't like to fly or ride in the car, thus I don't travel much. LOL! I will be praying everything goes well tomorrow. You'll all be in my thoughts and prayers :)

Our prayers will be with you tomorrow.

I love flying. I would fly everywhere if I could. Don't mind driving if I have plenty of time. And not on a dead line to be somewhere.

Glad you arrived safely.

Glad to hear the drive to good ole Ohio went pretty well. A couple outbursts is pretty good for a lil tot. Tell your mom and Phil I said hi and that I'm thinking and praying for them both (and you too!) I'll be looking for any updates. Love you lots!

Sorry I've been missing your posts lately. I've been trying to clean out some old stuff to give away and trying not to be on the computer so much!

I can totally relate to what you said about how we feel when we're away from our kids. It's so tough!
