I have been sitting on a big fat morsel of excitement for about three months.
Check it out -
Once up upon a time there was this chick who was born tender then she turned bad then she went messy. Badly messy. So she got better, got babies, a husband. Going to New York was her dream.
One day she started an IVF blog which turned into a pregnancy blog which turned into a cancer blog. These days she just blogs about whatever the hell life throws at her in any given day. Oh - and there were secret squirrel trapdoors in cyberspace which opened up to her and she met some of her best friends online. Angels, disguised as bloggers.
So far I have bought my all weekend BlogHer conference pass, and two nights at the Hilton. That's all I got. I told Dave I was going to America in August. I expected him to say, wow hon that's great .... or, pffft yeah right.
Know what he said?
"Well I'm not staying at home while you're off overseas."
So he is coming too. We have an appointment in a few weeks to go down to the American Consulate in Sydney to get visas. Ummmm, hopefully we will get them. America is a tricky place to visit these days! Lucky everyone loves Aussies. Dave and I may or may not have to answer specific questions about our mis-spent twenties. *cough*
Hopefully we'll be allowed in. I may have to row a boat over, if they say no.
We are trying to save up money for the airfare. Every time I tell somebody, the first question is, "Who will look after the kids?"
I have no idea. I'm terrified of the plane crashing and leaving them orphans .... I was even too scared to fly anywhere for our honeymoon for the same reason.
Anyway. The cat's outta the bag. We're aiming to stay for two weeks, make it a real holiday. I'm so excited that I'm already sad it will be over one day. Gemini, one of my BFFs, will probably not be there SOB ..... but lot's of people will. Heather has promised the pizza is awesome ..... I will be the judge of that, Ms Spohr. I need to hug Mel, especially after her post today.
Katiepie and I are roomies for the weekend, we've promised to not tell the other if we fart in our sleep.
I'm gonna be a part of it.
And I can't wait.
