Start Spreadin' the News...

...I'm leavin' today...

Well, actually, I'm leaving tomorrow. But that's not how the song goes and I do hope you were singing along with me. Yes, Elizabeth, Paige and I are headed to the Big Apple bright and early tomorrow morning. Big Joel will join us there on Sunday. Here are some of the things we have on our agenda:
Dinner at Serendipity III
Greg Laurie's Harvest Crusade at Madison Square Garden
The Phantom of the Opera
Statue of Liberty
Double Decker Red Line Bus Ride (yes, we are going to be those kind of tourists)
The Metropolitan Museum
Breakfast at Bubby's
Ordering garlic knots from Famiglia's and having them delivered to our super chic apartment on the Upper East Side with the "Pottery Barn-like decor"

Unfortunately, I am not in the least bit prepared for my adventure. I've been spending way too much time online blogging and stalking and meeting new friends. (umm, kind of like I'm doing right now) So here are some of the things on my agenda for TODAY:
Clean the house (can't stand returning from a trip to a dirty house)
Laundry (all of it)
Pack my clothes, but only after I decide on which clothes I'm taking. (I'm not sure the "Carpool Mom Sweats and T-shirt" line is as fashionable in NYC as it is here in Hometown, TX.)
Pack my children's clothes for their trip to Grammy's.
Take the dogs to the "hotel" for their vacation (translation: to the vet's for boarding)
Individually package up 140 necklaces to take with me and deliver.
Start on a new batch of necklaces so I won't be so far behind due to taking a few days off in New York.

I know I really shouldn't complain, because this time tomorrow the fun will have begun. But as my precious husband says, "I wish I could just wiggle my nose and it'd all be done." Since that won't work, I'd better get busy.
