Packing for my trip

Okay, that sounded a little funny.   What I meant was that I am packing my suitcase for my trip to Korea!


I leave Wednesday morning for Tokyo and then will fly on to Pusan from there.  My mom and one of my sisters is going with me.  I am very, very, very excited!  I was born in South Korea but have not been back since my family moved to the states almost 25 years ago.


The kiddos will spend 2 days with dh and then off to his folks for 4 days while he's working.  I can't imagine being away for 6 whole days!  No dh, no kids, no worries!  Well, I'm sure I'll find something to worry about.  We always do that as mommies, don't we?


It's funny what we bring as gifts sometimes.  We are bringing lots of MAC makeup (since my sis works for them in NYC) and lots of vitamins-- Glucosamine Chondroitin to be exact.  Apparently you never quite know what's really in a vitamin over there.   When I visit my sis in NYC, I go to shop for clothes and shoes.  When she visits me here in TX, she hits the Wal-mart for reasonably priced deodorant, toothpaste and shampoos!


I'll have my laptop with me so I may or may not post an update.  If not, I'll definitely catch up on all of your blogs when I get back home.


Have a great week, ya'll!  Or is it y'all???

I hope you have a great time. I think all moms need to take a break once in awhile. Have a wonderful time and enjoy yourself.

how utterly cool! wow, what a trip. I was born in Japan, and i think i'd like to visit someday. My darling is half Japanese (tis where Igarashi comes from) and he'd really like to have a look around over there. He was born in boring Idaho. Which is not nearly quite as bad as Ohio or Iowa. Anyhow, i think it's funny that I -- the whitey-- was born in Japan, and him-- the Japanesey-- was born in Spudsville.

Can't wait to hear all your details! have fun and stay safe.

because it is a contraction of "you" and "all."

I look forward to reading all about your trip! Hope it's been totally safe and pleasant. How many hundreds of photos did you take? LOL
