Our Trip Itinerary

usa

We are less than 8 weeks out from the trip now. After a dry patch of not being excited at all, there is now a growing buzz inside me that I am pretty sure is NOT a seizure!!!
It is the anxious stage too, where I am starting to double-guess things that may thwart our departure. Today’s panic centered around the realization that the 7 yr old hasn’t had chicken pox yet. So many choices to tackle this crisis.
1) Find someone with chicken pox and move the 7 yr old into their diseased home till he is good and spotty.
2) ‘Smuggle’ cod liver oil into everything he eats, cause I am sure he won’t notice that at all!
3) Get him immunized against chicken pox. Nah, I cannot handle needles..
4) Do nothing and just drag him around America wearing a T-shirt that says ‘I Am Not A Hugger And I Only Accept Air Kisses From A 2 Metre Circumference”
Anyways, I digress…Below is the itinerary for our trip. Feel free to let me know any glaring omissions.
