It’s Already Been Boughten (x4)

The decision’s madeHaiku Friday
No regrets this time around
A huge, happy step

Ten, Three, Twenty-five [10-25 March]
The deed done, no looking back
Scotland, here we come

A babe? No worries!
Apprehension for Ian
Eighteen hours on plane

*Sigh* “Are we there yet?”
He’s wound tight, I’ll go insane
Moaning kid on plane

March, a Spring prelude
It’s also Easter this year
I want me some choc

I recorded the conversations of me telling my Mum. I downloaded free software to do it. Now if I could just figure out how to add it to this blog, you could all finally hear my fake Scottish accent.


We were gone most of the day in Missoula getting passport photos taken of the boys (picture Cameron sitting on a high, no back stool. He was easier than Ian though. He kept doing the 3-year-old scary grin. If you have or have had one you know exactly the look I’m talking about), getting a copy of Cameron’s birth certificate (how sad is it that we never got one when he was born?) and filing the applications with the post office–hence the late posting of this blog. It’s nice to know it’s all done now, I can’t believe a kid’s passport is the same price as an adult’s though. Oh, the humanity!

  1. Very glad to hear that you are going to make the trip.

  2. I am so glad you made the decision. And I am glad that you’re all going to be able to go. I would have been just as glad if it were to be only you – the important thing is that you made the decision and saved yourself the agony of indecision. And us.

    We would all LOVE to hear your voice – look for UTTERZ – it is a way to add voice to your blog.

    Oh, I’m so glad you’ve decided to go. And, you’re right. It is Easter. I know the boys will love to see Scotland. That was the choice I hoped you’d make.

  4. Oh Boy! I know you’re excited about going. I can’t wait to hear the stories. You’ll be exhausted, but so happy.

  5. One word: Benadryl!

    Just kidding. Sounds like you have an exciting few months ahead.

  6. I’m so very glad to hear that you are going!!!

  7. Should be quite an adventure. It’s great that the boys will get to soak up some of their heritage. I’m sure you and your family still there in Scotland will value the time together, too.

  8. Ok, so technically not 18 hours ON the plane, but 18 hours travel time. It didn’t fit into the Haiku rhythm.

  9. I have been helping take care of my grandmothers since I moved home. It is a blessing, I am so glad you are getting to go home and see yours. I don’t envy the flights…

  10. I didn’t know you were going home!? Lucky! We’re hoping to get back this coming Christmas somehow.
