Okay, it's official.

As you already know if you're a regular reader, my parents made their annual pilgramage to Florida at the beginning of the month. They'll be there until December 5th.

Initially, I was pretty pissed that my mother would just up and leave me here with a newborn and no idea how to care for her. But I'm over that. I'm pretty proud of myself and the way I've managed with the baby, and after a LOT of begging and pleading on the 'rents part, my brother and I decided that we'd drive down and spend Thanksgiving week with them on the beach.

We're leaving Sunday morning. Eight hours in the car with a breastfeeding newborn, fighting Thanksgiving traffic. Sounds like a whole new kind of hell to me, but maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised.

Now I have to go pack.

I am: so very many things. A mother, a wife, a dreamer, a lover of animals and babies, a friend. I've been called a bitch, but if that's what you call someone who stands up for what they believe in and refuses to settle, then I guess the title fits.

loves: my family, horses, a full night's sleep, puppy breath, my daughter's laughter, thunderstorms, bubble baths, makeup, soft sheets, David Sedaris and Augusten Burroughs, wine, massages, the written word, and sour straws.

dislikes: closed minds, depression, pimples, extreme heat, math, panic attacks, black licorice, doing laundry, white chocolate, gin, Bush.
