Help! I'm being kidnapped!

Lyle woke me up at 5:30 this morning and said I had one hour to get ready for our flight. HUH? He said my bag had been packed and arrangements made. Cholita, who'd snuck into our bed sometime in the early morning hours, poked her sleepy little head up and looked concerned. But not as concerned as her mother.

What about Cholita's doctor appointment today? Changed.

Did you know I have Sharing Time this Sunday? Someone else is doing it.

Rose has piano. Covered.

Who's watching our kids?! It's arranged.


I looked in the suitcase Lyle packed for me. I've noticed it includes a bathing suit (fine) and exercise clothes (what the heck type of kidnapping is this?) A fat farm? I'm stressed.

And worried. And so sorry to the people who will be staying at our house. If I'd known I would have cleaned the oven. And dusted the piano. And cleaned any hair out of all sink and shower drains.

My husband is telling me we'll miss our flight.......to somewhere. He's not saying.

My apologies to whoever is stepping into my chaotic life. I'll be praying for you.
