This is IT!!!!!!


Well, this is my last post for about 10 days!!!! We are leaving bright and early in the morning for Uruguay! I would totally be lying if I said we are all packed and ready.....big fat lie! ha! We will probably be up super duper late tonight packing. Plus, I have to clean my entire house too.....for the house-sitter!
You know how that is.
We have to make a Wal-Mart run tonight.....for last minute snacks, gifts for the missionaries, supplies and groceries for the house-sitter!
Oh....and very important....we have to charge our phones, ipods and camera tonight! Must not forget that! :)
I am starting to feel a little airplane anxiety though. :( I truly hate flying...but I have to muscle through it. If you total up all our our flights and wait times in the airport etc...we will have about a 14 hour trip to get there!
I wanted to thank each of you who said you were praying for our youth pastor, Jared! You guys are so sweet. Jared has a doctor appointment today to get all the gauze and stuff taken off his hand. It will be the first time he sees his finger since the accident. Jared is very nervous about this.
(If you don't know what I'm talking about....you can read about it in my previous post).
Sidenote: I am really really really (i will add one more "really") going to miss my sweet doggie Maddie while I'm gone! Ugh...I do not like leaving her. But I know the house-sitter is going to take good care of her.
Also....I will miss blogging and getting to read all of you're funny, sweet and encouraging posts! I will have LOTS to catch up on when I get back! haha!
Well, I better wrap this up! Lots to do! :) I will catch up with everyone when I get back!
Keep us in your prayers!
Lots of LOVE!!!!!!
Amanda
