Vacation...Starting Later Today!

We leave for vacation in the morning. Well technically I guess it is morning now. Just a very early morning.

For the most part I'm ready. I've packed. I've loaded the car. I'm cleaning up the house in the morning. You know later this morning. Then we're outta here.

I do have some nerves about the whole thing though.

I'm not overly concerned (knock on wood) but I'm wondering how well Preston is going to handle the drive. Or more accurately drives. We have four almost full days of driving coming up in the next few weeks. Starting tomorrow. We're driving all the way to just outside of Sacramento, California where my Grandma lives. It's about SIXTEEN hours total. That's a lot of driving. We are going to split it into two days but still Preston's only two and he's got a lot of energy. Here's hoping it all goes well.

I'm worried that I've forgotten something. I keep running through the list in my head. What do we need? What have I already packed? Here's what I need to make sure I grab in the morning. I even had Brad quizzing me on the things he can think of that we might need. It's a big job trying to think of everything we're going to need over the next almost three weeks. I'm just hoping that IF I do forget anything it will be something that can easily be replaced. Or at least wait until we meet up with Brad so that I can just have him bring it with him.

I'm seriously worrying about how well Preston is going to handle the separation from Brad. He is starting to become very attached to Daddy lately. Don't get me wrong he's always loved his Daddy but these days he wakes up asking where he is and when Brad gets home he's all about doing whatever Daddy is doing. We aren't going to see Brad for almost two weeks! Longer than Preston and Brad have ever been apart. I think it might even be longer than Brad and I have been apart since we started dating. I'm really hoping that phone calls will be enough for Preston. And that staying with Nee-Maw and his Aunties and Uncle will help fill the void.

And I'm tired. Tired and I have a long day ahead of me tomorrow. Plus I started rereading the Twilight series after I saw Eclipse and I'm on Eclipse right now and just have to read a little bit of it before I go to bed! What? It really is that good!

That is going to be one hell of an adventure! Just you and Preston and the open road....

I am sure everything will go smoothly and will look for a report when you get back!
