Mickey_2So on that note, it seems like a fitting farewell:

M-I-C (see you later)…

K-E-Y (why? Because I like you!)…


(And by the way, posts will be appearing while I’m gone, because Typepad lets me write them ahead of time and schedule them for publication…how cool!  But I will probably not be checking comments, e-mails or other blogs until I get back home.  I’ll miss you bloggin’ friends–have a good week!)

    Have a super time! Don’t know if you’ll be going down Interstate 95 at all, but if you do — think of me! Can’t wait to hear all about it when you return. Enjoy that Chronicles of Narnia on audio. My kids love listening to Adventures in Odyssey while we travel. Makes for great family discussions along the way,too.

    Have a wonderful time, and enjoy the Florida sun for me! If you get this before you leave, don’t miss the Lion King show at the Animal Kingdom. It’s fantastic.

    Have a great time.
    You know I have found a way to stop my children saying the,”Are we there yet?” thing repeatedly on long, or even not so long, trips. My plan of attack is to say it before they do. Once you beat them to it a strange role reversal takes place and they end up responding as I would…”No! Please don’t say it again!” “Not too far to go.” “We’re nearly there, mama.” It works.
