OMG, I'm So Not Ready

In looking at the calendar today and trying to figure out how I'm going to get everything done between now and Christmas I realized that daughter leaves for Australia in THREE AND A HALF WEEKS!

This trip has been in the works for ages so I don't have the excuse of not knowing ahead of time but it was like "oh Christmas, well that's a LOOOONG time away yet". Except now - it's not.

I have to shop for gifts, make sure she has everything she needs, square it away with her teachers, and have a meltdown about letting my baby go to the other side of the world without me and I have to do it all in THREE AND A HALF WEEKS!

Where's a paper bag - I'm pretty sure that hyperventilating comes next.

Oh, sweetheart, I so don't envy you on this one. I think I would just fall apart if my baby were to go across the planet!! I would just have said no, so you're a way cooler mom than I'll ever be!!

You're a brave soul. I make Baby Boy call me every 30 minutes when he just goes to the other side of town for tae kwon do class. I'd be in a padded room at the thought of across the planet. SOOOO not happening.

I'll mail you a brown paper bag, LOL.

When you're done with that paper bag, pass it down here. I am exhausted now.
