First off, I have had so much fun reading your comments from Tuesday’s blog post – I have had to restrain myself from hopping on to Ebay and ordering everything that you recommended… More on some of your obsessions next week.

Now for today. When my blog posts dwindle down to just a couple a week, you know that one of two things is happening:

  1. I have a book due in days, not months
  2. I’m traveling

And right now? It’s both.

 I am in rewrites of THE “WHAT’S FOR DINNER?” SOLUTION and on the road. 

OK – don’t feel too sorry for me. We are at Disneyland right now. At the Disneyland Hotel. In their renovated suites. Pictured below…

Yes – the headboard lights up.

And plays the song, “A dream is a wish your heart makes.”

If it wasn’t so cool, it would make me gag a little.

So Roger is happy to be in Disneyland, and our daughter Amanda is here too. We are meeting our girl Kimber for a wedding on Saturday. Everyone is happy.

Except me.

Because in order to take this little road trip, we had to board our puggle, Jake. And that just makes me all kind of sad.

It’s like taking your kid to preschool. Will he get along with the other kids? Will he eat his food? Does he miss me?

So my wonderful husband, knowing the puppy anxiety I have around leaving Jake, did something that only a rock star of a husband would do. He paid the extra five dollars a night to have the webcam activated in his sleeping room.

Overnight puppy care? Expensive.

Nighttime webcam? $5

Mommy’s peace of mind? Priceless
