Sometimes I post 5 times a day, sometimes I post once a week. Get over it. :-)
We, and by we I mean I, am in a packing/cleaning/shutting up house frenzy. It is insane to me:
1. How early our flight is
2. How much stuff a 6 month old requires
3. How time consuming it is to finalize everything when everyone is going and no one is staying home (plants in the sink, laundry and dishes done, mail stopped, car keys given out, etc)
We are leaving bright and early (although I am sure it will definintly not be bright, it will still be dark, tomorrow morning to fly to Chicago O'Hare and then on to Omaha. We will be met there by someone from my family who will then drive us back to Ankeny, Iowa to visit my Grandma Shipp and my Aunt Cyndi and her family, as well as my parents who are joining us there for a few days. It was going to cost us $400 more, PER TICKET, to fly into Des Moines Airport. INSANE. So someone is picking us up and we will rent a car to drive back but it will still be way cheaper than flying into Des Moines.
Kerstin: I would love to see you but I'm not sure that we'll be arriving in Omaha any earlier than it will take us to turn the car in and board for our flight :-( Let me know if you are even possibly available next Wednesday the 15th around 5pm, wait I think our flight leaves at 5. I don't know. If you're not working next Wednesday afternoon let me know and I'll see if we can't meet for something super quick.
That's all folks. I'm off til next Thursday, or more likely, Friday. I am more excited about this trip than any in a long time. It will be so good for the three of us to get away, and not have it be Flint, where we're constantly running ragged trying to see everyone we know.
