If you're reading this, then that means something. That means I actually made my stand-by flight, and am on the big island. Yes, I'm talking,
Hawaii. Packed every single bikini I own. All zero of them.
With my mostest bestie in the whole world, my sister. We're like this. And with my totally awesome, Single! and HOT! and FABULOUS! cousin.
All the single men, please email me your picture and a brief description. I'll forward the winners on.
There's a few things I want you to know about this trip: it's 4 years in the making.
Wives: take a tip from me (it's the only one I have). If you wanna go on a big trip, ask years ahead of time. Years.
"So, hon, can I, like, go on a sister's trip in 2 years or so?"
There is no husband alive who wouldn't give a happy yes to a trip that far off.
Well, there probably are a few husbands out there who'd say no. And those husbands are weenees.
do ya know what else about this trip? Between my sister and I, our very sweet husbands, their jobs, church callings, and our 10 combined children? It was like moving HEAVEN AND EARTH to prepare the way. It was almost a joke, there were so many crazy loose ends to take care of. For me and my Boy Toy, it was totally "Mr. Mom".
"Now, do you want to go over the list one more time?"
"No, I don't want to go over the LIST!. . . Okay. . . let's go over the list. . . "
My kids are still in school, for one thing.
("Now, the boys leave for school at 8:30 sharp. Make sure they brush their teeth right before they go. Jamison has ____ on ______ and Jace needs to take ______ with him on _____ and. . . . Do you want a babysitter for that?")
And the list goeth on and on. Filled the freezer with total crap food, I did. Not that the hubs can't cook, 'cause he totally can. But just to make things easier. Relieve my conscience. Or something.
And it's not that I don't love it when Jeffro dresses everyone. Because I totally do. (No, really, I do-- it's freaking hysterical. Ahem. Sorry, hon.)
But I laid out every day's worth of outfits for the kiddos.
So that's all behind me. Hopefully I didn't suffer a panic attack whilst on the plane, ("WE'RE GOING DOWN!!!!") again, and my house is intact when I come home.
See y'all soon. Ish. I'll bring ya back a lei. Or a really flowery muumuu. Let me know.
