thank you for bea-ing a friend

Tragedy! Bea Arthur passed away on Saturday. I was always a fan of The Golden Girls and remember watching it after school when I was young. If I happen to see a rerun on, I will still gladly watch it. While as a young girl I always imagined myself as Blanch on the show and NEVER wanted to be Dorothy (Bea). Being older I have much more respect for Dorothy and really enjoy her wittiness and humor. So, here's to you, Bea Arthur. Thank you for being a friend!

pack mule

Travis and I are leaving today for NY and VA for a week. We are going with my sister Missy, her husband Roger, and my parents. The trip should be a blast! I am definitely excited to go places I haven't been before. And, a little nervous about leaving my kids for an entire week (and a little excited for some grown up time).

While I love to go on trips I HATE packing! I hate trying to plan what I will wear so far in advance. Especially since the weather can be so different and change so frequently. Here is snippet of last night's packing:

Me: Trav, have you seen that white shirt?

Travis: What white shirt? One of these on the couch?

Me: No, that one I just went and borrowed from Hailee.

Travis: Did you bring it in the house?

Me: Yes. I put it on the table with that Hurley jacket. Will you help me look for it?

Semi-frantic and frustrated searching ensues...

Me: I have no idea where that shirt is! How can I not find it?!

Travis: (walking in from garage with shirt in hand) You mean this shirt that was in the car?

Me: Um, yeah... That would be the one...

I hope this isn't an indicator of what the trip will be like.
