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!
just thinking.....
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.....

My Boys.....

My Ladies......
Sissy and Sadie

Oh yeah, and my
I Love you honey.

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

And Grandkids......

YEPPERS! I am traveling WAY OUT OF MY
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!

Laughing Orca Ranch said... 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!!
