Long Day's Journey...

Today I catch the bus at 8am and travel 5 hours to Nairobi, Kenya. I will cross a border, spend hours on the road, be away from my family for 2 days and sleep in a foreign country just so I can have a normal check-up with the OB/Gyn. Brother!

I'll be back on Tuesday night. I'm mostly concerned about getting to the hospital in time today for a mammogram and then from my appointment tomorrow to the bus in time to get home (and the fact that I don't see how lunch will fit into tomorrow's schedule. You know how I get when I don't eat--Grumpola! I need to go pack snacks.)

On a happier note, Heather was at a costume party this last weekend and my singing in the car on Friday night inspired her :-)

Here's Pipi...

Mammogram - ick!
No lunch - more ick!
Pipi Longstockings for a costume party is brilliant! She's adorable! If only I knew the song in Swedish. Bless you all!

Oh dear! What a long journey for something so uninspiring! I hope you'll bring some pen and some paper, at least.

I love that these two girls(Emily & Heather)were tied together, throughout the many miles by one amazing storybook character...Pippi. Fabulous!!
Praying for yummy snacks to be packed for your beautiful body to nibble on as the journey unfolds and brings you back to family and food. Hugs!!

What a beautiful Pippi! I showed it to Christian and it trigored a dream he had with you guys naturally being at one of our house groups. he was happy to see you all, then realized, "wait, you should be in Africa!"

Nelly, I was quiet with my thoughts for most of the trip. Not such a bad thing...

Sue, our girls miss each other! Nice they could share Pipi over the miles :-)

Marty, I'm glad we are in Christian's dreams :-) Sometimes when certain songs come on I think, "Oh I miss singing with Marty!"
