My Bags are packed! Am I Ready to go?

Well Sort of!
I just have a few last minute items to toss in.
I know by the time I get there, my back is going to be killing me!
What with sitting in the plane all those hours,
and lugging a back pack around for a carry on.
Plus a big purse, cause you know
I had to kind of buy an oversized one for my "personal" item!

My nerves are stretched to the limit!
Never being on a plane before, and scared to death of them,
I am taking a leap of faith taking this trip!
Yes, I have to have faith!

I have never had a panic attack before, and I do not plan on having one now!
but.....
just thinking.....
about....
getting.....
on....
that......
plane.......
Lots of Hail Marys and Our Fathers will get me through!

My son sent me his DVD player. It arrived in a very nice carrying case.
It is to big to put in my back pack, so I made a case for it.
That way it would not get all scratched up.
I plan to catch up on some movies I have not seen yet.
I knew I was buying them for some reason when I caught their sales.
I would pick them up here and there.
Not getting out to the movies much,
I just wait till they are on the 5 dollar rack at Wal-Mart!

I also have a couple of books to read,
not that I will be able to concentrate on them, I'm sure.
A couple of Puzzle books to work on.
A journal I can take notes in.
Lots of pens and a couple of pencils,
(gotta have my pens!) LOL

Gosh I am going to miss everyone at home!
My girls.....
Taumee
Sydney
Sassy


My Boys.....
Simon
Screech
Pepper

My Ladies......
Sissy and Sadie


Oh yeah, and my
hubby.....
Rick
I Love you honey.
YOUR the BEST!

and
kids too..........
Robert
Cameron & Shelby
Shanna & Phillp


And Grandkids......
Parker
Briann
Cody

YEPPERS! I am traveling WAY OUT OF MY
COMFORT ZONE!
A trip of a life time!
I am looking forward to it!
Honest I am!

Leaving Monday the 25th to drive to Portland.
Get up 2 hours before the butt crack of dawn
on Tuesday,
(not that I would of slept any, I'm sure)
board the plane on or about 6:30 AM.

Fly for 5 hours,
(if we are not stuck on the tarmac with a traffic jamb,)
Land in NEW YORK~

Have a 5 hour lay over,
Of which I am greatly appreciative of.
I will need the break.

Then board the plane for HUNGARY!
That will be a 9 hour flight! WOW!

We will see how far I get!
I just might tell Patricia that I will
just hang out in New York for three weeks and await her
return trip home!

Hope the plane rides went okay. I know the feeling of fear when it comes to getting on one of those monstrosities!

Awww...you have the most beautiful family!! I don't think you've ever included them like this all in post.
I bet they already miss you, but are so happy you're taking this trip, too.

I hope you're having the time of your life, my friend!!
