Crunch-time is here now as I try and get everything done before we leave for Geneva on Thursday. The list isn't neither too long nor too short, but it all sort of has to fit together well in the midst of carrying on with normal life kind of things. I will breathe a sigh of relief when we get on the train to go to the airport! By then if it's not done, it's too late!
The one thing I don't like about going away is that we have to leave the kids. Don't get me wrong; I like a break from my kids just as much as the next guy. What I don't like is both of us going away and knowing there is always the miniscule chance that something could happen to both of us. I know that's a morbid way to think, but the thought of that is one of my deepest fears. Maybe it's because I lost my Mom at 21. I just really, really want to be able to be with my kids for a long time. So I would appreciate your prayers for travel safety. I know the kids are going to have a great time. They are already really excited and counting the days until they "get to go to Sam & Ivan's house to sleep."
