Leavin on a jet plane...

...don't know when I'll be back again! Okay, I do. April 27, but still, I'd like to think I won't be back for longer.
I can't believe today is the big day!! I've wanted to blog all week but haven't because I've been super busy trying to get ready for the trip, and also my internet was even less dependable than usual.
I got into LA last night after some drama at JFK. Ugh. Have I mentioned I hate flying? I've got 10 flights left before I'm back in New York so hopefully there's nothing too crazy along the way.
Anyway, my friend Melissa was a doll and picked me up after some last minute changes this week. My parents were out of town and my other plans fell through.
It was great to catch up with M&M and eat at one of my favorite places, BJ's. Mmmmmm. Maybe the best part was the skateboarding competition that had on tv that was taking place in Sydney. The guys were in shorts and no shirts. Can't WAIT for that weather!!
I got to my parents' and passed out pretty quickly. I'd been up till 3:30am the night before doing the last minute packing.
This morning I'm running for a quick haircut and then my sister's coming up with the kids. Yay!! My parents will be back some time this afternoon and then tonight it's back to LAX to head to Sydney. Woooohooo!!! Sort of dreading the flight but oh well, it will be worth it!
Anyway, gotta run. Enjoy Easter for me! I'll miss it completely as I'll be crossing the international date line (is that what it's called?) and basically skipping over Sunday completely. Weird.
