Two more days

Friday we leave for Ohio to go to the Equine Affair in Columbus. I just told Jasmine about it tonight. Whenever something major is going to happen, she needs advanced notice but I've learned that when it's a good thing and you give her too much notice, you never hear the end of it. If I had told her sooner, I would've been woken up everyday at the crack of dawn with her asking if we were going today. I already have to get up early tomorrow (OB appointment) so I figured I'd just tell her and get it over with. Shawn and Evan will be staying home for various reasons, we don't have someone to watch all the dogs, driving five hours with a baby is insanity and Shawn doesn't really enjoy it in the first place. They're having a boys night out on Friday, a couple of Shawn's friends, Shawn and Evan are going to the movies. Hey, I'm ahead of the game for once, I'm already packed. Normally, I don't pack until a few hours before I absolutely have to go to sleep the night before we leave. This is the first year I don't have to pack diapers and baby crap. Just some clothes for her, some for me and some stuff to keep her occupied on the way down. And one of my husband's dirty shirts. :) Yes, I take his clothes with me and smell them when I miss him. It's either worthy of an aww or woah, crazy. haha He sleeps on my side of the bed when I'm not here and uses my pillows. (he won't be able to use my pillows this time because I'm taking those suckers with me)

I know you'll have a great time! I'm sure it will feel great just to be out and about, and give you a break from baby care. I know you don't mind it, but it will still be a nice break for you!

Hugs, Beth

Have fun and enjoy the show and the break.
