london bound

it's official. 
and this will be our home away from home for exactly 6 days, 5 nights
in the beautiful city of london. 
so excited i can hardly breathe.
get to bring home my girl too.
had the lovely experience of booking this trip
with a woman from south africa or guana or somewhere
like that. could hardly understand a word she said, 
and she kept getting her "g's" and her "j's" mixed up when 
giving me confirmation numbers.
let's just hope we dont end up somewhere else.
so frustrating...and all this was taking place at 10pm.
way past my bedtime.
and a big cross your fingers that hunter's rush passport cooperates.
we were literally running around the city of riverside yesterday,
(the 3 of us, because BOTH parents are required to sign in their presence)
trying to get the 101 pieces of official documentation
ready to send to san francisco by 4:30.
love it when the nice passport lady looks at you calmly at 3pm and says you
have the wrong birth certificate.
i guess the word "abstract" is a deal killer.
luckily craig saved the day, and ran to the
next building over and retrieved the correct one.
a miracle in itself.
nothing like living on pins and needles,
hyperventilating the whole entire time.
actually worried about the 10 hour flight too.
hope i can sit still for that long.
i wonder if i can take a tylenol pm.
i need a good book.

So glad you are going! It will all work out. Rather than Tylenol PM, I recommend Ambien. No hangover feeling after.
