Green.

10 November 2010

Saturday Dave is leaving for London.  And for reasons like it was scheduled less than two weeks before he was leaving, I have an appointment that I absolutely can not reschedule, finding a last minute sitter for a week is not in the cards, and I am insanely busy getting ready for a holiday bazaar, it is literally the busiest week of my year… I can not go with him.

I can not tell you how incredibly sad this makes me.

Awfully.  Painfully.  Horribly sad.

And green with envy.  Green like Elphaba. 

No Marks & Spencer holiday shopping.  No sticky toffee pudding.  No bundling up against chilly British winds.  No driving like a madwoman on the ‘wrong’ side of the road while Dave stealthly navigates us.

Oh, I know there will be other trips.  It’s not like it’s Paris I’m missing.  Well, I’m missing that too since my friend Lisa is there with her husband Arik celebrating their tenth anniversary.  And I know that a seven hour red-eye trans-Atlantic COACH flight is going to blow, but still.

Green.

I am so terribly jealous for you. And me. Because I totally want to go to London for a week. Bad.

Totally understand..my hubby was supposed to go to Atlanta and I couldn't go with him; a trip overseas would have been a fight for sure.

I wish I could come babysit for you so you could go. Let's chat soon.

I can't (read: won't) offer to babysit for a week...but when is your appointment? Maybe I could watch Finn for that.

Just kidding about the first part...you know I would if I could. I just think the daycare might be suspicious if I drop off a kid named Woody.

Seriously though, pick a day that you want to drop Finn off for a while so you can get some stuff done. Sunday evening or any weeknight would be fine with me. Email me!

Totally.

I would be green with envy too! I hope that his trip goes well and you survive while he is gone. Tell him at the least he needs to bring you something really, really amazing that you could ONLY get in London!

I feel the same way that my husband is going to Hong Kong without me on a school study abroad. I hate it when I can't go with him!

Aww, I'm a little green for you, too. We spent Christmas in England two years ago... I'm dying to go back!

Did you say Elphaba? I ♥ her. And I would be green too if my husband was going to London for a week without me.

Stopping by from Georgie's SSS list! Have a great weekend.
