anticipation and me....

I am anti-cipating (haha-"anti"bloggedy) my visit to California. There are a couple things that are on my mind as the date approaches.

One is the whole thing with the "swine" flu....which by the way, everyone is now supposed to call influenza A(H1N1)...yeah right?! I can't remember the scientific name of my cat......I had a bit of a sore throat due to the allergy season, but it perfectly coincided with the swine flu.......People look at you like your a freak. I have been holding the germ-x with me and the kids love washing their hands with the purell type substance. I sent emails to the airlines and the TSA people with what is appropriate for the travel in terms of cleaning supplies...."I want to sanitize my section" I told them. "can I bring alcohol wipes? and purell?"

Of coarse you can...."in 3 oz rule size bottles".

One check mark on my list.

two: Two children, one mother. I am so freakin crazed about traveling with two children....that are 1 and 2 years old. They are both in that "I want my mom, and my space" stage. At least I scheduled an evening flight that is non-stop!

Mantra: please be sleepy, please be sleepy......repeat 1000 times and breathe

Last, Not enough time to do all the things I want to do:
Visit old friends
Visit with all the family
Visit with my lil sis in Tahoe
Go to all the places I want to go...

But these are all pleasant challenges. I am always thankful for what I have and the joys in my life.

Best Wishes for a safe trip. My sister (a pediatrician) has two kids and she used to give them Benad.ryl so they would sleep on the cross country flights.
As a RN, I think this swine flu thing is Blown Way out of proportion. You are so right, good handwashing is so important.
