Leaving on a jet plane
to see some family! I am so excited. Today I bought my ticket to Washington for Lucie's graduation. Okay, part of me is nervous (will I need a seatbelt extender? will I know when to board? will I forget anything? just how soon do I have to get there? where's that list of what I can and can't take?) after all, I haven't flown the friendly skies since I was married (pre 9/11) and that was a puddle jumper from Spokane to Seattle and back for a trade show that work sent me to. I am flying out friday the 6th and coming back the 8th but this way I will not only be rested up before work the next day (driving that distance would have been exhausting) but I will be able to spend more time with my sisters, aunts , uncles and parents before having to come home. As much as I love parts of the drive between here and there its kind of nice knowing that I can hop on a plane and (presto!) be hugged by my mom in about two hours. Of course its costing me more to fly but Jase is right....sometimes not spending all that time behind the wheel is worth the extra bucks.
