I'm leavin' on a jet plane...

I've been singing that a lot lately. Gonna keep singing it for the next few months. Gotta love frequent flyer miles! But, I miss my family terribly! Especially now that I'm all hormonal. I have already become teary eyed over thinking about being away from Maggie for five days. I know it's not that long. I know I'll have a great time in Utah. But, sometimes there's no place like home.

In any event, I'm looking forward to going to CKU and Provo. I've never been to SLC and I cannot WAIT! My dear friend, Teresa, is picking me up from the airport and we're going to spend the day in SLC and Provo, stopping by some stores and I'll be getting ready for my classes. I am just praying that everyone likes the class! It's the most nervous I've ever been about teaching.

This pregnancy has also been so different than my one with Maggie. I'm so emotional all the time. I go from being angry to crying in a matter of 10 seconds. I cry over anything, everything and nothing at all. The nausea is at least subsiding somewhat, although every time I eat chicken I get sick. I miss my chicken fingers, but it's all worth it. Oh, and the funny thing is that Maggie swears I'm having a boy and she's already named him Chester. I should have never let her watch "Dude, where's my car?". LOL! She loves Chester. I told her that Chester was not on the table. I've got a few months to try and convince her to like another name. Besides, it could be a girl. In that case, I'll have to convice Scott to like Mallorie. (He always hollers "YO! Mallory!!!")

Anyway, wish me luck in Provo!!!

Chester... that reminds me of Chester the Molester. Not a good choice. How 'bout RIKER, Xander or Chaz??? :)

Have fun in Utah. Give Teresa as hard of a time a possible! Shop for ugly purses without me :( AND have a great CKU experience. You WILL rock!!!

Ahh You will have FUN in Provo. Make sure and go to Pebbles in my Pocket in Orem. It's on State Street, I think.

Sounds like lots of fun. We used to live in Provo and it's a nice place. Good luck with your pregnancy. It is all worth it!!

I'm cracking up over "Chester"...uumm... yeah that won't work. I love the name Mallorie. It's always been a favorite of mine! Don't worry about all of those emotions, it's totally normal!
Have a great time in Provo, and don't worry about your class, you'll be a big hit! You always are! People love your classes!!
Have fun, see ya when you get back!

Chester is hilarious!

Have a great time in Provo, Gin. Utah is so beautiful! I'll miss you when you're gone.

And remember....pregnant women are so beautiful at any and all sizes. No more tears about clothes!

LOL! Maggie's got me crackin' up over Chester. You know if it IS a boy that's going to be his special nickname. The one she taunts him with when she's 13 and he's 7.

Have a great time in Utah! I'm so excited that your class was so popular. It's so awesome when good things happen to good people. :)
