We're off to see the pandas.....

The wonderful pandas of.....San Diego??

That's right, the Barefoots are off for a long weekend babymoon tomorrow morning. I am so excited for a break from work, work travel, remodeling, and sleeping with a husband and two fluffy cats in a very small bed. Just the husband for a few days, thankyouverymuch.

The last time we were in San Diego, a couple of months ago for my sister-in-law's graduation, we went to the Zoo with a large group and no one wanted to wait in line to see the pandas. I was, in a word, crestfallen. So on this trip WE WILL SEE SOME EFFING PANDAS, even if it means I have to camp out at the gate. Baby needs pandas.

Other than the line, now all that is standing between me and my pandas is a workday in LA, a flight home, an unpack, a repack, a snap decision about bathroom paint color, a trip to the hardware store to purchase said paint, and a flight back down to San Diego.

That doesn't sound so bad, right? RIGHT?!?

I am a in awe of your energy! I had a relaxing 50-minute acupuncture session today. But then, I nearly collapsed after that when I walked around the mall for an hour, waiting for my dinner appointment. And I'm not even pregnant!

Well, everyone at the zoo better get out of your way! When a preggers mama wants pandas, she WILL get pandas! Have a super wonderful babymoon!

Have a great babymoon in San Diego! We thought about doing a babymoon but it looks like what I'll be getting is a weekend in Lansing, MI for the U of MI and MI State game. Oh well, at least I get away:-) Say hi to the pandas!!!

Sue, I don't know -- I've been to a UMich/Mich State game at the big house and it was pretty great. I guess I'll have to weigh in next week as to whether it was more thrilling than pandas. :)

Hope you had a great weekend! The getting there, though, sounded stressful. Too bad you couldn't just pop down from LA directly. Hope you saw LOTS of pandas, sunshine and sleep :)

Oh, and welcome back to the blazing heat!!
