♪♫ I'm leavin' on a jet plane. Don't reckon my house'll blow up before I'm back again...

Reckon. I just love that word and I think people should start using it more (like I did in the title - in the slang context). Okay, bye.

Okay, I'm back. ☺

I really am leaving on a jet plane, you know. To the BlogPaws Conference in Lake Las Vegas, NV. By supper time today I'll be in the air. 

This year, though (unlike the last 2 times, when it was in the DC area {2nd link's to a friend's blog, with awesome pic of Dewi}), I'm travelling alone. No Jon Farleigh and Dewi to keep me company (or to shield me from having to strike up small talk about the weather with people I just met).

We're ready to go! Whaddaya mean this thing doesn't fly?
(Next time, boys! I promise!)

In addition, this is the only time I have ever left my family (including the current pet population) for longer than a couple days. It's taken me more time planning/cleaning/rearranging/restocking/explaining/sweet-talking to get my household ready for my absence than it's taken me to get my own stuff together. But that's okay, considering my household contains a baker's dozen living beings (including me). 

I should be thankful that I get to go anywhere alone, ever, right? (I am! I am!☺)

So, then, can someone tell me WHY (even though I've got things planned to the hilt {what is a hilt, btw?}, and no one is protesting my leaving) I keep worrying that some tragedy is going to befall my family because I'm not here to prevent it? No, don't answer that question. It's rhetorical. I already know why: 

I don't go on enough trips! (Must get on that right away.)

On the bright side, however, won't there be some gleeful reunions when I get back home on Sunday?! And I'm just talking dogs and cats!

Alright, I feel a little better (one less butterfly in the stomach, maybe). I'm glad we had this little talk.

Oh and, I'll still be on Twitter and Facebook and Instagram during the conference (with live updates and pics), so if you're not following me there, you can do that now (with a simple click of the button). (P.S. You're awesome!)

See you on the other side! Have an awesome rest of the week, friends!

♪♫♪ ...So lick my face and smile for me. Tell me that you'll be a good dog and wait for me....


  1. Have a great time! I'm sure the pets will hold down the fort in your absence!

  2. Safe trip and have a lovely time and we look forward to hearing all about it. We know everyone at home will miss you. Have a tremendous Thursday.
    Best wishes Molly

  3. Hope you have a great time! The reunion on Sunday will be pawesome! Might need video of the boys and cats welcoming you home!

  4. I left only Jasona and one cat... It's been nine days and there have been no explosions yet but there has been a lot of... Oh! Never mind. You should just enjoy yourself! I'm sure your more family can't get in as much trouble in less days. Positively sure. Well, maybe I should warn you about the... No. That had to have been a random anomaly. Enjoy yourself.
