Well, we have a busy week and a half before us. The kids and I are planning fun sleep-overs with friends. I am trying to enjoy the company of good friends before we go to be with other good friends, and we have lots of packing, Christmas shopping, & paperwork-type stuff still to do. I'm not even sure we have informed everyone we need to about our move. Some people may find out after the fact. I hope not, but I'm not sure who all we still need to tell.

I'm very excited and (a little teary-eyed at the same time). I told the kids that we are just looking at it as a big adventure. Maybe we'll write a book about it one day! ;o)

I'm trying to get the kids to a certain point in math before we put them in school.... I love our math program(Math-U-See), but it goes in a unique order, so I want to make sure the kids have covered a few things that I'm sure the school has already covered. They will do well.

I'm very at peace about our plans except for the thought of how many things I might be forgetting to pack or do before we leave...I'm such a forgetful person. I hope the mountain air will clear that up! ;o) I'm also a little leary of being sick again. When we went on vacation a few weeks ago to Lake City, I was miserable for about 24 hours, then I was weak from being sick but miraculously okay. Very strange thing. Hopefully it won't happen again. I will drink WATER (and stop to go to the bathroom every 30 minutes) and take calcium, calcium, calcium which is what they say to do. I looked it up on the internet, and they make it sound much more serious than I thought it was. hmmm. I knew it was miserable, but had no idea it could be serious. I will be fine even if miserable, but now I will pay more attention to my kids' reactions to the altitude change. If we have trouble, I think we will go get some oxygen. One website mentions "home oxygen"...anyone know exactly what that means? I know there is water with oxygen added (supposedly...I don't know how that works or if it works), maybe we will try it.

Okay enough rambling about nothing.

Hometown

Every day we walk right past
All the concrete and the glass
I don't know where we're going
I hardly ever see your face
And there's not enough space
For all the love we should be growing

We just need a little earth to stand on
Plant our hearts on solid ground
Turn the lights out in this city
And wake up in a new hometown
We'll stand out in our front yard
Where we can finally breathe
If we find a little earth to stand on
Baby you and me

Imagine Friday football games
Where everybody knows our names
They even stop to say hello
I bet they'll have a town parade
Kids selling lemonade
Baby, don't you wanna go, ohhhh

We just need a little earth to stand on
Plant our hearts on solid ground
Turn the lights out in this city
And wake up in a new hometown
We'll stand out in our front yard
Where we can finally breathe
If we find a little earth to stand on
Baby you and me

I don't want to face tomorrow
If we don't leave this place tonight
I've never been more sure
Of anything in my life

All we need's a little earth to stand on
Plant our love on solid ground
Turn the lights out in this city
And wake up in a new hometown
We can dance out in our front yard
Underneath a maple tree
If we find a little earth to stand on
Baby you and me
