"I Am Leaving!"

On the way down to Mexico with the Clark family, in our delirium, we began to quote King Curtisof youtube/wifeswap fame. In case you've missed out on the hilarity, here is a highlight reel:"> Everyone who knows me knows that I have a problem leaving. Somewhere in my psyche there are 8 things I'm supposed to do before I hit the door and 12 things I should be taking with me, and I don't know, leaving is just hard. Leaving Mexico, was not just hard because I was leaving behind some great friends, but because I had not planned for how to get home. We had a few issues. I had a tooth ache, but had enough pain meds that I thought I could make it home. I also thought buses left for the states every two hours, and they do, with a stop and switcharoo in Monterey which Rachel was unwilling to let me do. For those of you who know Rachel, you know she is fairly fearless. So when she said there was no way she was letting me stop in Monterrey, I listened. So we started asking friends for frequent flyer donations to defray the cost, and they had plenty to offer, but do you you know how many hoops American Airlines makes you jump through just to donate/receive miles from a few friends? And that it would end up almost costing the same amount as a regular fair? Grrrh. Eventually, a dear friend of mine, came to my rescue with enough miles for a complete ticket and I was on my way. I returned home to my hilarious husband who made me promise to never leave him again and a new to me car, and some super-cute, hungry kids who missed me. And a much-needed dentist with a tooth file in hand:)
