Vacation!

I don't know if I'll be making any posts next week. It depends on if we have internet service at our hotel. We are taking the kids to Disneyland and, can I tell you, I am SO excited! Last year we were there for Christmas and it was spectacular. This year there are a lot of Halloween things going on that will be really fun. I might even be more excited than the kids - and that is saying a lot!

We are flying to California today and, even though my kids are good travelers, I still have Child On A Plane Stress. I am really scared to be the parent of a whining/fighting/shrieking/kicking/hysterical child that causes other adults to shoot me filthy looks and pass judgment on my parenting skills. In preparation, I have purchased a variety of entertaining toys - like animal-shaped crayons for Bart, new glittery markers for Lisa and some cool coloring books. I'll also be bringing 2.8 million Matchbox cars, enough fruit snacks to feed a third-world country and my iPod, so I hope we've got the entertainment bases covered.

I promise to miss you and return at the end of next week.
