It's crunch time.
We leave in less than 24 hours.

So I am typing up instructions for the people watching the house, my parents, assorted relatives and yes, I even have instructions for my blog friends.

* I probably won't post from Cambodia because no one wants to drag a laptop around.
Yes, there are internet cafes on every block.
I just can't commit to getting there and posting.
I might post. And I might not.

* I need you to stop posting.
I can't have 2,587 posts to read when I get back and I don't want to miss out on any fun.
So basically, I need the world to stop rotating. ;)
Can you guys just sit in your family rooms and watch reruns for two weeks?

And here are some "fly on the wall" conversations from the last day or so -

Brian called everyone into our bedroom for some packing instruction.
"Okay, when you are packing you need to pack.......(lists the usual things).
Oh and even though it's really hot in Cambodia, it's usually chilly on the airplane,
so I am taking a lightweight fleece just for the plane."
Garrett -"Well, I'm going naked and wearing a snuggy."
I turned to Brian - "Why are we even talking to them?"

Garrett to Brian in the hot tub last night -
"Yeah, I can't believe Mom isn't freaking out.  She always freaks out before trips.....especially since we have so much to do tomorrow."

Me this morning in prayer -
"Heavenly me to not freak out today."

Well, there you have it!
I'm going to go freak out over how much we have to do today!
