My Mind... Have you seen it???

I am going to tell you the outcome of this story, before you read it. To try and save you some of the panic that I have been going through the past 2 days. My daughter is STILL going to London. Okay, now that that is said...

Also, this will be the brief version as I am running around like a chicken with my head cut off, as she leaves in ONE WEEK!!!! AND my son graduates from high school this weekend!!! AND I GOT A JOB!!!!!!! So I start Tuesday, naturally right smack dab in the middle of the craziest time of my life. Oh well. I GOT A JOB!!

So, I get a phone call on Tuesday... 9 days before she is to leave for London on this trip she won for DANCE, right! The dance company calls and tells me the convention is cancelled. They had "venue" problems. Can you say panic. Wanting to throw up. Wanting to die. Well, I pulled my $hit together and we made a game plan. They are giving her close to a thousand dollars to make up for the fact that she won't have a convention to go to. So with that money (and a trip that is already bought, planned and paid for!). She is going to London. It will be more of a sight seeing trip (like that is Bad) and she is also taking classes here!!!!!!!!!! Which is VERY exciting. They are world renowned. So this is what I have been doing the past 2 days, planning a trip ONE week before she is set to take off... call me super Mom, k?!?

I just recently popped into your site and I think this is only the 2nd(?) post I read but I wanted to say I'm glad she is still going! :)

My daughter (was 16 at the time) just went to London with cheerleading on December 26th. Her 1st flight out at home was canceled, her chaperone she was to meet in Chicago never showed up, London Heathrow lost her bags for 3 DAYS and she sprained her ankle pretty bad on the steps of St. Peters. Still - had a blast, celebrated her 17th birthday while she was there and came home with amazing memories.

Tell your daughter good luck and she'll have a blast!

Good job on landing the new job.. Crazy week.. I hope your daughter has a blast.. I'm still jealous of her and the trip (and I'm not even going to mention that I still think daily about one day owning a super expensive pair of jeans.) Good job, super mom.. (If I were you, I'd make it a rule in the house that everyone call you that, and that's the ONLY name I would ever answer to again.)

Super Mom, you are! Congratulations on the job and way to go on salvaging the trip. You rock.

Congrats on the job! That is great news. And you can't complain about a sight-seeing trip to Londo, right?? It will still be tons of fun. Good luck pulling it all together!! :)

FYI, I love Bill, too. I'm weirded out that I have so many anti-Bill readers . . . but hey, a reader is a reader, right?

Thanks for the ending of the story first because I would have cried if I thought she wasn't going to London!!! Tell her to have fun for me too!

Oh, I am so glad she is still going. You had me worried there for a minute! By now she is already gone, so hoping she is having a fabulous time. Congrats to your son the graduate! And CONGRATS to you on the job!! What kind of job is it?
