Quilt With Us

Well, today is day one of our road trip plane trip to North Carolina.  I so wanted to take the motorhome and spend a month on the road but DH reminded me how tiring some days can be so he pushed his weight around and now we're flying.  I guess it's better than having the roof blow off the motorhome again, or the door trip to flap in the wind again, or the windshield wipers to quilt again, or the batteries to fail, again.  Things I don't miss but made for a fun adventure all the same.  

We drove to our son's house on Friday to drop our doggies off and spend the weekend with them.  Our PG daughter-in-law is doing well and not sick anymore.. hurray!  Today we head to our airport city and will spend the night at the Holiday Inn there.  We have to be at the airport by 5:30am so we thought this was a better plan than leaving the house at 4:00 to get there in time.    Once we did that and  got a flat tire on the way and missed out flight.  This way we I feel more comfortable about the early morning thing.  Flying still makes me nervous...even at my age...It's not so much the flying but all the hoopla it takes to get ready and all the rules since 911.  

I printed off our boarding passes...yeowza....6 pages... but well worth the standing in the check in line. Now to get the house tidied for DIL and do some laundry and then off we go.  Happy Monday to all.

Maybe in lieu of the leisurely drive to/from NC DH will take you on some leisurely drives out there.  Oh my goodness -- 6 pages just for boarding pass stuff?  Yuk!  I hope you have a WONDERFUL time. Please tell your mom hello for me. Hope you feel all the warm quilty hugs that are going with you.

Well, I guess you are right about the things we/you don't need on this trip. I will miss your narrations of the trip's much unnecessary things but I really am glad you let your hubby talk you into the flying. You really don't need all that exciting stuff this trip. Just enjoy yourself with the trip and the visiting your folks as the highlights. Maybe you could write down any exciting things and post them for us after you get back home, I am sure that Ethel and Fred would be accommodating. lol

Have a wonderful trip Debbie and enjoy your visit with your loved ones.  It's always good to get away for awhile and get a change of scenery.

I'm with you about flying and prefer the MH. But, under the circumstances, I can see why DH pushed his weight around. You won't be so tired and will have a great time  with parents and son and family. Have a wonderful trip and try to stay connected. So glad that DIL is doing so well now with your 1st grandchild. What a blessing for you and DH.

Good luck on your trip, Debbie!  I agree that they have taken all the fun out of flying.  A 5 hour leg of a flight between Sacramento and Anchorage last week nearly did me in!  The hassle of security and checking in; the over-crowded plane and narrow seats and aisles were pretty uncomfortable.  I could hardly wait to get off the plane!  Airports aren't much fun either.  During a long layover we did choose a pleasant restaurant on the concourse for a light lunch.  When was the last time you had a $50 lunch?
