Off we go...

We are heading out on Wednesday on our trip and although you may be shocked at this, I am sick and tired of behaving myself! I am ready to cut loose. I am sure Tom is bored to death with me. I have been good as gold and I am sick of it. I want to see Sue and Annie and go off and do our own thing. Of course I know he will pack the ivory brush for tradition if nothing else. What do you think, do I have the nerve to sneak it out before we go? I honestly haven’t ever done that before. I have no reason to think he would use it but if he noticed it was missing would he be annoyed or amused? Shall we find out?

We will be home in about a week and a half. I hope everyone is will be well and happy while we are gone. I don’t expect to be on the computer but there might be the chance to check emails. I will miss you all! Take care of each other!
