So, I'm "scheduling" to post this, knowing (hoping) I will soon be on planes to warm places. So, if you are reading this, we are on our way or we are there. First, we are scheduled to use timeshare points in Vegas, traveling for free with Greg's standby benefits (my husband works seasonally for an airline so we can travel).
We would love to be heading to Hawaii or somewhere a little more amazing, but I haven't been earning a paycheck (though I would sure like to be) so we have no money. In Vegas we can take a free shuttle to the strip and see fun stuff and spend lots of time together at the pool. We are even bringing food to save money. Then to Cheryl's wedding! But Cheryl, if you happen to read this, wedding expenses are covered...we pre-planned and covered that by alternate means months ago. So any fretting about money in any blog post is an entirely seperate matter!
At the moment I have a huge pile of laundry to fold for packing. And instead of brushing his teeth, Christopher (who will be six next week) is standing with his tooth brush in hand explaining that he only has bad dreams here, but never in hotels. The house smells like sugar cookies that Greg is helping him cook to share at school, since we will be gone for his birthday. Katie is spraweled amongst the laundray reading "American History Revisted," a giant bathroom reader of Greg's.
Update Sunday closer to departure....
I'm updating from the Kalispell airport with a few pictures, as our first flight looks pretty good.
