it was a wild night last night. i was on the phone for a couple of hours. first with marina, who asked me to come to washington when she has surgery in december. of course, i said yes who would give up the opportunity to see their grandyoungins!!!

then john called and my trip to washington had to be rethought because he, valerie, rose ellen and her older brothers kyle and seth are coming here for Christmas. it's his leave before he ships out to afghanistan. i can't wait to see that little girl.

after the first of the year i will go to washington, marina and i talked and she will put off the surgery until then so i can be there. my trip should be about 10 - 12 days.

then in may i will be winging my way to hawaii. since john will be deployed i am going to stay with valerie for the birth of the new grandbaby. john thinks he can get r&r around that time so he can be there too. i will stay there about a month and a half.

we are also still thinking about a cruise in either march or april. so, i guess i will be living out of a suitcase for most of the first half of the year.

we will find out on oct. 5th if there is more than one baby, too!!!!

Exciting stuff!
Keep us updated on these things as I won't be able to
remember all the dates and times.
You're becoming quite the traveller.
What does Morris think of you being away?

Wonderful news, Ellen. You must be so excited at the thought of having them there for Christmas, and being there for the birth of the new little one. Best wishes to Marina with her surgery, hope it all goes well. You may feel tired after all the travelling, but there is no way that you will feel old. Love and hugs, Jenni
