One More Day ....

Just one more day ... this time tomorrow, we'll either be sitting in the Philadelphia International Airport or we'll be on the plane, on our way to Jamaica! Yippee!!

A Guinness update: the Nanny Extraordinnarie took him on Monday to have his stitches removed. Upon removing the bandange, Dr. T. found an infection lurking in his toe, turning it about 4 times the size that it should be. Not good. A good cleaning, a lot of instructions, medicine and major bucks later, Guinness is home - but if the infection doesn't clear up with our daily cleanings and stronger antibiotics for two weeks, his toe will have to be removed completely. Hello? He's only 6 months old and we've poured lots of love and loads of money into this puppy - you just have to be blessed with our luck to face these kinds of problems! I am thankful though that there is a great chance that he'll be okay, we just need to take extra special care of him. He is going back to see Dr. T today to have one last stitch removed (from his neutering - its tiny, but they missed it when removing the others) then he'll go back for a recheck on his toe on Tuesday a.m.

Twinkletoes had her last Lacrosse practice last night. A big thanks to Coach Marni for doing a wonderful job with the 10 pre-k and kindergarten girls they had on the team this year. The girls came away with a sense of team and even learned a little bit about Lacrosse. She says she wants to play again next year. We'll have to wait and see what next year brings. She's definitely not playing two sports at one time again. One double season for two kids is enough for me!

I am not sure if tonight is the Palentologist's last lacrosse practice or not. He's looking forward to going but I think he's also looking forward to the end of the season and being able to "veg" in the backyard after school instead of being run from one practice to the next, whether it is his or his sisters.

I think we're just about set to leave. I have my suitcase packed except for a few little things, things I will have to pack tomorrow before we leave the house. The husband is a little behind me in the packing phase but it doesn't take him long at all to get his stuff together.

I've got to go find something to eat and grab a cup of joe ... its going to be hard to concentrate today ... I just can't wait to be on the beach tomorrow!
