I'm leavin' on a jet plane

Apologies to Peter, Paul, and Mary... Brian and I fly out in about 8 hours to hunt for a rental home in California. The kids are all set up with their "foster families" for the week. The 3 younger kids are with our friends Jeff and Jennifer and their 2 sons. When we last checked in on them, they were busy playing. This is the first time the 2 youngest have slept away from us, so it is slightly anxiety-producing for me. Emily is staying with Jennifer's parents (Dean and Kathy... yes, the Kathy who makes quiches and helps me rearrange furniture and books). Emily's stay will in all likelihood be akin to a stay at a private B&B. She may not want to come home.

We have packed about all we can tonight. All that is left are the things we need to use to get ready in the morning. We'll probably have to get up around 3:45-4 in order to be at the airport by 5:15 for our 6:55 flight.

I don't know if we'll have internet access in CA. If so, I will try to post something out there. Otherwise, I will write when we get back Saturday night.

Oooh, um, sorry to tell you this, but, ahem, while you're visiting Sunny California is the very time the state is about to be hit with rain, rain, thunderstorms even, and more rain. Welcome to the Golden State! Most of the time it is just lovely here. Really!

Have a good house hunt, and quick vacation without kids! Hope it doesn't rain on you the whole time!!!

Hope that you have a nice trip aside from the house hunt, too!
