I'll be taking a brief break from blogging. Brendan's grandfather passed away on Monday and we are heading up to Chicago for all of the family stuff. If you haven't heard any Papa stories, ask me . . . I've got a few. He was quite a personality, that's for sure.
So: big unscheduled road trip = Crazy Jenn. We leave this afternoon and I think I've managed to come out the other side of this whirlwind of preparations with a net positive. I think we've got the basics covered anyway--we've got all three kids present and accounted for, insulin, Epi-pens, computers, phones, and a couple of diapers. Everything else is non-essential, and I include clothing and food in that, as those are things we could acquire easily during the trip.
We'll return on Saturday (I hope) so that Brendan's Big Birthday Surprise can come off as scheduled. And after that, more whirlwind preparations for ATLOSCon! Which STARTS NEXT WEEK. Wow! Not too late to sign up, by the way.
So I'll see you in a bit. Bye for now!
