Tossed Salad And Scrambled Eggs...

Our last real vacation was in 2008.  When it was planned we were to attend a vacation/gaming conference in Boston.  I was also to be 5 months pregnant when we left.  We went on vacation that year, but instead chose to go to the beach-alone.  Since then we've taken day trips, weekend ventures, and even have a ski trip planned for the beginning of  January 2011.  I could be pregnant at that time, I could not be but that isn't stopping us from going or not going.  The same is true of our impending vacation.

Pookey (as is his nickname) came into the living room and said "How would you like to go to Seattle?"  Uhm well sure, when?  August 11-15th.  I immediately agreed.  I can't wait to see the Space Needle, and I can't wait to go to Pikes Place Market to see the fish market.  He can't wait to go see the mountains.

I could have easily said "Well, if I get pregnant then I really can't fly..."  but that never even crossed my mind until after hew as on the phone making our reservations.  Even as that thought crossed my mind however I didn't stop him.  Sure I could be pregnant and not able to go...alternately I could not be pregnant and be able to go...but why plan our life around that?

I'm going skiing in a week and a half, and I'm going on vacation in August.

In other words I'm planning on living my life, not planning on what might or might not happen...Seattle here we come!  

"Hey baby, I hear the blues a-callin',
Tossed salad and scrambled eggs

Oh My

And maybe I seem a bit confused,
Yeah maybe, but I got you pegged!
Ha, Ha, Ha, Ha!

But I don't know what to do with those tossed salads and scrambled eggs.
They're callin' again.

  They're callin' again.
Good night, Seattle, we love you.
What is a boy to do. Good night.
Frasier has left the building.
Thank You!
Scambled eggs all over my face. What is a boy to do. Goodnight, everybody.
See you next year, we love ya. "

We're planning a vacation...and we're planning on living our lives.

See you next year Seattle, we love ya!

  1. I think that's great that you have a vacation to look forward to. I find myself doing the same thing - I better not agree to a vacation that's too far out because what if I'm pg and can't go..... I'm starting to realize that's no way to live.

    You'll love Seattle! My dad lives in Washington state and I've gone to visit and LOVE that area! There are so many cool things to do up there! :-)
