Countdown

In just a few hours, Trey and I will kiss our sweet, sleepy muppers and remind them how very much they are loved.

We will shower my mother and brother with platitudes of gratitude and a final word of warning (e.g., should you leave the house for any reason or length of time, promise us that Spencer's Green Dog never, but never leaves your sight).

Armed with suitcases (Trey) and a box of Kleenex (me), we'll pile into the car and try to beat the morning rush to the airport.

We'll find a parking space. Lug our bags (Trey) and tear-stained tissues (me) into the proper terminal. Check in.

We'll make our way through the security checkpoint, and make haste to a newsstand to load up on periodicals and Twizzlers.

And then, Jen promises with the voice of wisdom, THEN: we'll relax. Because then, we'll officially be on vacation.

Just the two of us. For the first time in a long time. And fourteen years to the day after we said, "I do."

It's just a few hours away. I can't believe it.

I can't wait.

HAVE FUN!

And JLo is on the cover of People this week. So looking at her baby pictures should take up the whole plane ride. At least.

Hmmm Wisner. I'm thinking, "What happens in Omaha stays in Omaha."
