Gone, Going.

For some unknown reason, I've committed to going to Florida tomorrow morning. I say that because I will be traveling without Ryan and staying in a FULL house of family. hmmm... I LOVE, LOVE my family but I'm not sure how 5 straight days are going to go with me being moody as heck, Maeve teething and sharing ONE, yes ONE bathroom. It will definitely be interesting. Also, today, here in Jackson I think the high got up to 80-something and I have been sweating like a pig. I came home from Lasing (impromptu shopping trip) and peeled my clothes off and laid in bed with the fan blowing on high, directly on me. I started thinking of Florida in the summer- a high in the 80's would be a cool day for them. GAHHHH. I am going to pop like a tick down there. And as much preparation as I've put in for this 2 and half hour flight, I am still SO nervous about doing it alone. How the heck am I going to maneuver myself in those tiny bathrooms with Maeve and my belly? How am I going to keep Maeve happy while SITTING for almost 3 hours? How am I going to lift and carry things (stroller, car seat, diaper bag, purse, suitcase) without putting myself into labor? How am I going to do all of this while keeping my sanity? I have no clue.

So why am I going to Florida? My sister, who lives in Mississippi is going to be there- and I never see her and having the opportunity to visit and let her spend some time with Maeve is a huge reason. Also, my dear, sweet grandma's house was robbed a couple of weeks ago and she really needs some help to get things back in order. Also- she has an awesome, screened in pool that I can freely bare my whale-like self without the onlooking from strangers. And then of course it really comes down to Maeve- she is going to have such a blast at Sea World, the beach and spending the days by the pool with her aunt Meggie, GiGi and nana. SOOOOO I will bite the bullet, board the plane and try my hardest to get there all in one piece. Anyways, please say a prayer of safety for us- I hate flying with a passion! Also- my grandma's computer was stolen during the robbery- so this will be the last update until we get back. Be on the look out for a billion beach pictures! :)

Hey Ash! Glad you guys amde it back safely! Thanks for the heads up about the coupon, I forgot about it and am going to Target in about an hour...anyways, am I missing something on the coupon? The only one I can find says "5 off HASBRO games" then it lists like a choice of 5. I don't see one that says anything about Milton Bradley...any suggestions :)!?? Thanks a bunch.

Ashley said...

nope- they totally let you use it on ANYTHING!!!!! I thought it was going to beep but it went right through! So stock up on some games for Ri for Christmas!!!!!!!!!!!

Ashley said...

OH- I also just read that someone used the Hasbro coupon on the travel games which are 4.99 so apparently it works on those too!!!! :) Good luck- hopefully your target will take it! You can at least try! :)

and don't forget to look for the peelie on the cherry-o game! :)

Ahh...thanks so much, I was wondering. I stocked up BIG time at KMart a couple of weeks ago...got 700 dollars worth of toys for 98 bucks!! AMAZING, i hope we still have stuff left. The Jackson Target always has lower prices than the ones in Kzoo. I'll let you know (not that you care, well maybe you do:)).

Ashley said...

Ashley said...

Yes I caught wind of that, I am SO excited, too bad their diaper deals are over, but that wont stop us from finding something else huh? (Good thing we don't go to the same KMart :)).

Thanks for the tip on the travel games, I'll let you know how it goes.

ONE MORE THING, don't foget today is the last day to use those $5 coupons at KMart, the ones that spit out of the machine during doubles. I totally forgot about them until now, so I guess I'll have to stop there too. Good thing Ty is taking the kids.
