Well, this is it! Grandma Cindy, the boys and I are off to Dubai tomorrow. My last night sleeping in our apartment. So excited to be together as a family once again. I have to admit, 10 days alone without Ryan was hard. It has made me appreciate him a lot. I don’t know how single parents do it! The boys have missed him, they ask every morning to call him on the computer. Regardless of how perfect the apartment is, or moving our belongings in, I just want to be with my other half. Grandma Cindy has saved me, already! I would have never been able to do this final push alone! We are going to be fine on this flight, we have tons of snacks, toys, movies, Jude food -all ready for the long 16 hour trek over there.
Next time you hear from us, who knows what the report will be! I hope it is a good one! Love you all, love you California, and love to all of you wonderful friends that we’ve been able to make here. I am pretty fearless when it came to deciding to jump – but when it comes to goodbyes I am a total wimp. So many tears! We are excited, but goodbyes are hard.
I’ll try to take pictures, it will be quite the site. Cindy, myself, three boys, and eight HUGE duffels packed to nearly 50 pounds each. See you on the other side of the world Cheri!
