Adios Amigos!


Well, The Tim and I - jet-setters that we are - are on our way this coming Wednesday to our latest adventure!  This coming Saturday, my niece Lauren will be getting married in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, and we'll be there for the big day!

However, even before the big day arrives, there will be festivities and hi-larity as only my family can do it.  The Tim and I are both working half a day on Wednesday, and then we will head to Baltimore to my niece Amanda's and her husband Pat's house.  At the same time, in another area of Baltimore, my sister and brother-in-law, and my niece Annie will be descending on another niece's house.  Then, at 2:30 AM on Thursday morning, a bus will be picking us all up for the trip to Dulles Airport to begin our trek South of the Border. 

So there will be 10 of us altogether - 9 adults, and my great-nephew Zach who is 4 years old.  God help other people who are unfortunate enough to be on the same plane as all of us ... There have already been approximately 1,000 e-mails back and forth regarding wardrobe, food, timing, etc., and that's even before we get there and meet up with my other sister (mother of the bride) and the rest of the family on the West Coast.  Yes, it will be crazy, fun, LOUD, and the first time in years that every single member of the family has been in one place at one time.  Kinda makes me feel sorry for the groom's family ...

The Tim bought me a laptop as an anniversary/Christmas/birthday gift, and it will be making the trip with us, so hopefully I can provide some updates on the craziness ...

I am doing my best to get things organized ahead of time.  But it's really hard to not just pack the stuff you'll need clothing-wise, but the books and knitting that will need to come along.  How does one decide?  Over the past weekend, I changed my mind at least 5 times regarding knitting and reading materials.  But if nothing else, I'm putting a deadline on myself of 8:00 p.m. tomorrow night.  Whatever is put aside then, is what is going ...

Oh - and if you are thinking you will break into all of our houses and steal our valuables while we are gone, well, HA! you're gonna be sadly disappointed.  We are taking any "valuables" with us, and everyone has a cat and/or house sitter lined up.  Therefore, if you have a propensity towards crime, I would strongly suggest that you look elsewhere for satisfaction!

So, adios for now, and hopefully I'll be posting from sunny Mexico the next time you hear from me.

Have an absolutely marvelous time!!
(I'll cancel my ticket to PA now that I've been forewarned of a lack of valuables AND an attack cat on security detail.)

That sounds like so much fun! Hope you picked out some entertaining reading material and a knitting project or two that won't demand too much attention, since you'll be too busy having fun with the fam.

Nice deterrent for crime. Are you sure there's nothing good left in your stash? I'm pretty sure you've mentioned a book or two I want.....

Have fun! Congratulations/happy to the wedding couple!
