What did I just get myself into?

I am now completely overwhelmed! My grandpa's 84th birthday is next week. My dad called today and I was bummed out about how I couldn't go. Now, since he is being oh so kind to pay for my ticket, I fly out on Sunday.

I have a layover in Denver for about an hour and then I fly up to Casper. I fly back on Wednesday morning. Then, my hubby and I fly out again on Friday to spend a week in Michigan with his parents and sister. Oy!

Thankfully, I have much to praise God for! First, I get to see two of my grandmothers, my grandfather, my dad, two uncles, and four cousins on the first trip. Second, I get to spend an entire week with my father, mother, and sister in love! Third, I spent the last two days cleaning the house, so it will be very clean for hubby when I'm gone. Fourth, my mother was kind enough to move our Christmas celebration from Sunday to tomorrow night so that I get to spend time with her and her boyfriend before we leave. Fifth, ALL the laundry is done. All I have to do is iron the rest of hubby's work shirts and then I can pack. Sixth, United Airlines was having a really good sale and we got a fantastic deal on my ticket!

I'm just nervous about all the traveling, especially doing part of it by myself. I always stress over layovers because I'm afraid that I'll miss the second flight. Thankfully, our trip to MI is nonstop. I much prefer to travel with my husband, and this is the longest we've been apart. Ever. I'm going to miss him a ton. At least Cingular has coverage in Wyoming, so I can still talk to him everyday.

Well, I'm off to finish ironing hubby's shirts and then maybe do something about my disaster of a desk before sundown. I probably won't be posting again until Thursday of next week and then I'll be gone for another week. Maybe I should have waited until January to start a new blog!

Have a great Christmas!

I'm so excited for you! p.s. missing your flight isn't that bad as it seems. I've done it a lot... Hopefully though if you ever do there will be an opening on the next flight for you to get on... The only problem is that if you miss a flight your luggage doesn't so it gets there first!
