One sleep to go!!!

Well we are down to the business end of things now and it is only 1 sleep till we fly out on our holiday to the USA. We are all getting excited except unfortunately myself. I am a stress head and until we leave town this afternoon for the motel near the airport I will be trying to do the impossible and be organised - which I am not!! So much still to do today including a trip to the hairdresser which I will enjoy. We have not had the perfect lead up with lots of dramas in the last fortnight. The 'horsey' one hurt her ankle badly, tore tendons etc and ended up on crutches , missing a netball grand final and going to numerous physio appointments. Think she will manage the trip okay but the strapping tape is packed!!! SH was diagnosed with Diabetes , he had a rapid onset of symptoms over a 10 day period (although testing shows he must of been feeling lousy for months) so is on medication. Luckily he has had some improvement already and it shouldn't affect our trip but of course it made our existing travel insurance invalid so lots of wasted hours were spent organising more!! HS had two major pieces of work to finish before we left for his 2 year 12 subjects, made more interesting by the fact that he left for Geography camp on Sunday until this afternoon. The work was completed and handed in although the message came home yesterday that there is a problem with one piece - oh joy!!!! I have to apologise for not posting, reading, commenting and blogging in general properly this last fortnight. My friend Robyn who I manage the retail sales on her internet business www.orangedaisy.com.au has a project in the latest Homespun magazine and very kindly, generously and naively offered 2 free buttons. Never did she imagine the response she would get. I have been eating , sleeping and dreaming buttons and orders for the last 10 days!!!!!!!
We fly out at 10.15am tomorrow. Not sure how often I will post while away, will be back properly in 3 weeks!!! USA here I come!!

I am a bit late in reading your post, Hope Oz Country picked up the wheat as the sun is shining again, and if she didn't it will be sprouting. Looking forward to the pics and stories when you get back.

Oh my gosh, shows you how behind I am with the blog reading. I hope you're having a wonderful time, can't wait to see your purchases and hear the stories.

Hey, after having written that, I can't believe you're in the US right now, and missed the most sensational AFL grand final in history. LOL. You would have been proud of the boys.
