1, 2, 3,... panic!

For a few weeks, our mantra has been "four weeks after Christmas day", repeated seemingly every time we talked to anyone. Well, the big fella has been and we have had a bit of "quality family time" (in amongst the various coughs, sniffles and general feeling crappy) and had the obligatory trip to the Next sale to get some supplies for the trip. Un/fortunately they were out of shell-suits so I need to reconsider my travel clothes arrangements. Me and Loup even managed what could be our last "date" for some time (thanks to the baby-sitters).... So, Christmas is pretty much done and now we look at the calendar and it's three weeks and two days. Think this is where we engage panic mode. So many things to finish off. Flight details, money arrangements, taxis and transfers, borrowing suitcases, confirm hotel, etc, etc, etc. All of this is, of course, distracting us (thankfully?) from the actual reason why we are going there and what is going to happen. We will get to that particular bridge when we come to it. Evan is coping brilliantly with everything and almost seems to be looking forward to it (mainly because of the seafood restaurant that he has decided we are going to for the big bucket of shrimps).

Anyway, must go - got some panicking to do....
