I will be blogging and on skype.. I will be missing my chillies.. and trying soak up all I can of this last adoption trip. It may be a few years before we take our family heritage trip.. so I want to remember everything!!

Now - to get everything done at work, shop for the things I totally forgot to buy for the trip, find my darn space bags, make a list of things to buy there.. and PACK PACK PACK... hug my chillies A LOT!!

So that is my update!
