*le sigh*

Lonely. I am so lonely. (Sorry, keep slipping into that Chipmunk-style Akon version of the song)

Scott got home last night after midnight. I was already asleep. I've been looking forward to having him home for two weeks straight after his two weeks in Thailand, then one week in Washington State. First thing he asks this morning? 'Ready for the bad news?'. That's right. He will NOT be home much at all.

- He will be gone to Portland Wednesday through Friday of next week (May 3-5)

- The following week, he WILL be here and sleeping in my bed, but I won't see much of him outside of that. He goes downtown Sunday to set up for a trade show, then will be downtown each day most of the day. (May 7-12)

- Then, he goes to Thailand for two weeks (May 17 - June 3)

We don't know his travel schedule after that.

I have a serious headache

Hopefully, since Scott IS home this weekend, I can go out a lot by myself to get away. I let mom go home for the weekend, with me checking on her regularly. It will give her some sense of freedom and happiness before we tell her about the cancer next week. It also gives my family a break since she's been here a couple of months.

This also means I might actually get to go do some inline skating this weekend, possibly over at jillions. YAY!

They yanked my favorite flavored water from the market. It was by Aquafina and was a calcium enriched, fruit-flavored water. When they started getting rid of it, they marked them all down to about 25 cents a bottle, and I bought ALL of them. I've run out now and am on the search for a replacement. I've tried some NASTY waters in this quest. I think I've finally found the winner - even though it costs a bit more. Propel Calcium Fitness Water. Most of the flavors are REALLY good, which is a positive. It's made by Gatorade and thus expensive, which is a negative. But if it gets more water in me, I'm willing to part with it. Much better than drinking five gallons of diet sodas.

Got vacation time? Wanna come to Georgia? With the boys. I'll split the cost with you. Seriously.

We've just committed to being out of town May 15 - 26, but you guys are welcome to come play with us before or after that.

Grandma is going to be here May 12 - 14 (Mother's Day weekend) so we'll even have extra grown-up help.


The Big Guy's last final is May 8. Why don't you come see us May 9 - 12?

For Plan B, why don't you guys come here in early June? By then our pool will be open and Atlanta will be beautiful. There is so much to see and do here! Let's go play.


I'm very very serious about splitting the cost with you. It wouldn't be just a vacation for you. It would be wonderful for us as well!!!

It all depends on what we find out next week about Mom's cancer, and the plans on that and her knee surgery, but I'm sure we could figure out a date. I'll take a look.

That would be so GREAT! I love the Atlanta area.

Oh shit. I'm sorry.

Blonde moment. I didn't even factor your mother into the equation. Have you gotten any more info on her cancer?

If you need help there just say the word.

We probably won't hear anything until early next week. Once I know that, we can make more plans. If news is bad, maybe we'll split the cost for you and the LG to come here, if we get good news and get everything scheduled out, then I'll come there with my guys to get away :)

Have you noticed we both appear to be hitting blonde-bottom today?

Why does he have to travel so much? -hugs!- I'm so sorry you won't be seeing much of him. I kind of know how you feel because my fiance works nights and sleeps most of the day, so I only get to see him during dinner and on his days off. :( I get so lonely ..

And yes, Propel water is very good. :) At our store, they're like $1.25 a bottle. It's not bad, but .. it is when you drink a lot of it, lol. As I tend to do. Don't try the Dasani Sensations water, though! It's horrible! It's a fruit-flavored carbonated water made with Splenda. It tastes like badly flavored soda water. Eeeewwww.

Yeah, I don't like carbonated water at ALL. I also didn't like that Vitamin Water or whatever they call it. Propel seems to be the winner, but like you said, it's become like a $5 habit a day the way they charge for it. It's like I've taken up smoking again - only healthier.

I've seen store-brand versions of fitness water mixes, though I don't know what flavors there are other than lemon.

We buy it for Vogon because we've had a hard time finding True Lemon after the first few boxes. I think we'll start buying that online, though -- it doesn't have any sweeteners so I can have it too.
