Goodbye for a bit

Well kids, this is it. The last day of the year and also the last post in the blog. Wait, that sounds like the blog is closing, which it isn't, it's just that spouse and I are off on our annual junket to see the family out west. This is good news as the blog's getting dull lately, and a little vaykay will surely spice things up for our return.

I'm trying not to stress about everything. Traveling always makes me jumpy as I have to go through every possible disaster scenario in my head and plan my handling of it. I think I'm being pretty calm this time around but last night something happened that might indicate otherwise. I sleeppooped. This is a first for me. I'm known to sleepwalk now and then, but sleeppooping is new, (and a harsh way to wake up let me tell you.) I woke up at four something while I was on the bowl in the middle of defecation. It was so weird. I was dreaming I was pooping and then woke up while I was doing it. Thank god I wasn't still in the bed. Anyway, these things always happen when I'm jumpy, so that must explain it. That or the fact that I didn't defecate yesterday. (TMI, I know. )

Today we've got all the last minute prep to do, the packing and whatnot, and arranging care for sara. We have an early morning flight tomorrow so I won't be involved in any midnight activities save sleeping. I hope those of you who do celebrate, do so in style and of course moderation. I'll take pics and vids of our trip and ply you with the details upon our return. Have a safe, happy and fruitful New Year everyone! See you in 2008.

Interesting that someone who, overall, works to maintain a positive approach to all things can be so negative about the potential of taking a trip. Planning is one thing, but planning for disaster? Well, I hope all your plans are for naught and your trip is disaster-free. Have a great time and we will await your return.

Plan for the worst and expect the best. You were not in bed when you awoke mid sleepooping. Where you also sleepwalking? I have always feared awaking whilst pooping but it hasn't happened yet. I did wake up whilst dreaming I was doing something else and had soiled my bed and self but it wasn't with Poop or Urine. (tmi)
Happy New Year all and safe return with tales of adventure. Ed

How can you say the blog's dull and then mention sleep-pooping???? How exciting it that??? (well, more exciting to hear about, I guess than to experience).

Have a safe and fun trip!! And photos, man, lots of photos!!!

HUGS...

While few of us would ever call your blog boring, I can understand the need to recharge the batteries to feel like you are blogging in top form.

Now, about this sleep-pooping thing...wow. You dreamed you were pooping and then awoke to find yourself on the commode doing just that. I wish I could train myself to sleep-clean the house.

Safe trip -- looking forward to hearing about all your advientures.

Why did I know that the final Sticky Crows post for '07 would be about poop? LOL
Enjoy your vacation and Happy 2008 to you and Serge!

Kevin said...

Have a great vacation. Enjoy the warmth.

Cincy Diva said...

Have a safe trip and a wonderful New Year.

Patricia said...

happy new year, richard, serge and sara!! *hugs*

Patrick said...

Have a fantastic time. Getting the batteries recharged is always a good thing, I hope you're able to let go of the worst fears. Reading your daily thoughts has become a highlight of my day. Happy New Year to all three of you.

Brechi said...

Travel makes me jumpy too. Have a great time and best for 2008 :)

dbv said...

i'll ignore the obvious joke and wish you a bon voyage!!

RoxRocks said...

Sleep-pooping is better than no pooping at all! LOL!

Take your time going but hurry back! Have a safe and happy vacation and Happy New Year to you and Serge and little Sara too!

I'm glad to have found your postings in late 2007 and found them anything but dull. Why, even the advent of sleeppooping is a new facet to be considered by psych departments worldwide and you most likely have the first case firmly documented here on your blog site!

I do hope your vacation is relaxing and invigorating with none of the potential disasters making themselves a reality.

Peace and Happy New Year!

You turned off skype by yesterday... getting ready I guess?

I wish there was a way to see you while you're here; maybe this weekend? I can't remember how long you're going to be on the west coast.

Safe Travels!

Summer said...

I also get jumpy well, I guess I'll call it what it is, bitchy, when travelling. I think it's just a fear of the unknown and the preperation leading up to the trip. Once you arrive you'll relax. Sleeppooping, hhmmmm, I wish I could do a few things while sleeping. Cleaning the bathroom comes to mind. Have a great trip and a happy and healthy new year too. Oh and your blog isn't boring. If it is I guess I'm boring too because I like it.

Java said...

How appropriate for you to end the year with a poop story. I'm glad you were in the bathroom not still in the bed!

I assume you have The Worst Case Scenario books in your library? If not, you should. They are useless and very helpful at the same time.

Have a great trip, full of good times and void of disaster. I eagerly await your return.

TJ said...

Enjoy your time away. Hope there are pictures upon your return. Take care and see you soon.

Enemy of the Republic said...

I wish you both a great vacation and a happy new year to you both.

Steven said...

I've fallen asleep on the throne, but never... you know.

I'd say you're a major multi-tasker, but that's a shitty joke.

Lewis said...

I have definitely SLEEP PISSED....does that count? I mean, it was the other end and all. Oh, and it was way out right next to the street.....by the neighbor's driveway. I knew the drugs were too much.....

em said...

I have the dream where I'm desperate to find a bathroom and I can't find one anywhere and then I finally find one and I'm peeing and I wake up to discover I'm still in bed and peeing. Dang. I hate that. I haven't done it in ages though. It probably is a stress thing.

The Life of Tornwordo.

I think, in some ways, why we come back here again and again is because we sort of want -and like - those TMI stories.

Have a good trip, safe and what-not.

SoCal is nice today, but rain is due this weekend.

jali said...

Enjoy your vacation with the spouse!

Happy New Year.

PG said...

Happy vaycay, I just finished mine and wish I was back on it, lol, and I didn't go anyplace, just stayed home and worked on the remodel.

Hope you and Serge have a safe flight and fantastic 2008. O and Sara too 8)
