As of tonight, I'm officially on vacation. That's right - no cooking, cleaning, carpooling, stamping or scrapbooking - although you know I'm going to take ton of pictures! We are going on a Disney cruise! We'll arrive in Florida tomorrow morning, and we'll sail away on Saturday. We'll be gone a blissful seven days, stopping in St. Thomas, St. Maarten and Castaway Cay - Disney's own island (shown in the picture above)! We've had this booked for three years, and the kids are over the moon excited. They will keep so busy on the ship - they have their own club and there are so many activities, I'm sure we'll hardly see them!
I was really worried about even making this trip, because something came up on Monday evening, and not in the too busy, over-worked and over-scheduled suburban family kind of way. I mean in the stomach virus kind of way. I caught the lovely bug on Sunday at a baby shower - I know this because three other people came down sick too. Anyhow, I wanted to die during the hours between Monday and Tuesday, but by Tuesday evening I was feeling better. I sent the kids to my moms because I was afraid they would catch the bug too, since it's obviously very contagious. I stripped and cleaned everything and used about two cans of Lysol in and around the house. I even Lysol'd the dog - I couldn't take the chance. So far, so good - noone is sick - yet. But I keep having nightmare visions of all my kids and maybe even my husband all barfing on the plane tonight. Wouldn't that be great? That would be such a Bowden family thing to happen!
Anyway...I've made some really cute projects, but I'll have to post them when I return. I just haven't had the chance to do it the last few days. To my customers, if you have placed any orders with me I will deliver them as soon as I get back!
Off to finish packing!!!
