    Two weeks from today, at 5 am, I will be flying out to Michigan to pick up my new lil man!!! I am so excited, I hope I can sleep these next fourteen days- I have a busy schedule up until I pick him up!!!

    Also- have I mention how incredibly stoked I am to meet Susi and her famous gang of Sphynx, and Pearlie and Beanie! Don't be too jealous, but I understand if you are- I can't wait to meet her and all the cats, I'll be sure to take pictures to show you all!!

    I hope time flies these next two weeks, I just want Ralph home!! :)

    I know the anticipation you're feeling! I still have about 8 or 9 weeks before my little girl will be ready to come home! I count down the days and I do actually have trouble sleeping at night! Good luck! :BigSmile:

    Heeee! Ralph is such a cutie!! You might have to get a white fluffy boa and pretend it's Pearlie's tail for him to play with or he might be sad :Wink:

    Yay for count downs!!! And it's a good thing you have a bunch to keep you busy in the mean time! I have 4 days left until my little girl flies in. :BigSmile: Saying I can't wait until she's here is a HUGE understatement! I am grossly excited to get my little lady in my arms!! :BigSmile:
    Here is to a fast passing 2 weeks!! Yippy!!

    I wish I was going with you to meet Susi & her gang. Yes, I'm jealous:BigSmile: You're lucky you have a busy schedule. It helped my 5 week wait for Sheldon more bearable.

      Well, I'm just recuperating from having my wisdom teeth removed- I'm not feeling too miserable, but the discomfort is getting worse as the numbing medication wears off. I'm sure tomorrow won't be too fun, but oh well- I'm just glad they are out finally!

      I know I'm going to be feeling better in the next three to four days, because the excitement of picking Ralph up is going to make me forget everything else!!

      Only 6 DAYS from today!! Woo!
      Susi and the Sphynx gang- get ready for me!! Haha :)

      Ralph- I hope you are ready for an eight hour trip home to Oregon!

      Ralph says he can do it with his eyes closed---as a matter of fact that's just what he plans to do. Sleep on the big, scary machine thing. He says he will try to be a good boy. I am sick like a dog...just hoping I will feel better by the time you get here! Would so much like to enjoy our short time together, have a nice meal, play with the kitties and send you and Ralph off on his big adventure and new life with his Daddy, his brother Elvis, his doggies and his horses! I will miss him like crazy because he is my lap purring buddy, but I know he will have a great life with you, Ben!

      Geesh-
      Ben, I hope you are better soon. Susi, you too! I wasn't going to mention it cause I'm not one to mention when I'm sick much but I spent a night in the hospital this weekend with a little bout of swelling in my noggin (cerebral edema/meningitis). But man, sounds like we just need to shut the lair down and fumigate it. Over half my office has been out sick this week too- I'm not taking blame tho, I was NOT contagious and stayed home when I was sick. I think iread spencer's mom jenilyn was sick too. I hope all of the sickly people start feeling better soon!!

      Jen

      Oh...so happy you share all the excitement. I am so jealous you are seeing Susi and the crew. Please do me a favor...give Candy Cane a kiss for me. Hubby and I have had pillow talk over that baby and we have wished her the best. Keep us posted and be sure to take lots of pics. No doubt you are getting a hug in with Susi...she seem so warm and genuine...give an extra tight squeeze for us :)


      So still keeping Ralph as the name or waiting to see if something fits better when he is yours?

        Haha, I sure hope he does sleep the entire time- it will be a lot easier on him if he just relaxes and sleeps it all off! I'm so excited to have him as a travel buddy!! :)
        I'm sure you will miss him, but you won't be losing him! He will be a member of the lair family forever, and you will constantly be bombarded with updates and pictures!! He will never forget his mama Susi and his Michigan family!! Who knows, maybe we will have a reunion one day? Haha. :)

        Sending good vibes your way to feel better soon! I don't want you to be feeling awful and have to drive to the airport and everything feeling sick!

        Dang, that doesn't sound like a fun time at all! Glad you are out of the hospital and on the mend!
        I'm not feeling too miserable, so hopefully by next week I won't feel too crappy for my day trip to Michigan!

        We probably should shut the lair down and fumigate it- I have noticed a lot of people aren't feeling well either! Haha (laughing at the thought of fumigating a website, not at all the sick members!)

        I will be sure to take a ton of pictures, and give Candy Cane lots of love from the lair (I know everyone hear wants to meet her!).

        For now, it is remaining Ralph. I have a name I think might fit well, but I have to see in person- so far I think Ralph is a perfect fit! I will be sure to update everyone on that, but for now refer to him as Ralph! Haha :)
        Susi said I can change his name, but I'm going to have to make sure she approves- and that Ralph approves as well!
