Happens to be my birthday... Would rather you could come have a good time with me that day, but closure will be nice. There will be points of depression along the way, but this will be one more step away from those points. It will be good, I think...
Yeah I would rather, BUT can't LOL!!! As it is, My mom, my husband, my baby and I are flying the red eye from SLC to NYC on July 3rd. Where we will meet up with my oldest brother, sis-in-law and 2 of his kids. Spend the 4th of July in NYC, and leave in 2 rental cars to Portland Maine on/around the 7th to visit with cousins, aunts and uncles that we have not seen in ages!
After buying airfare for me, my mom and husband (the baby is young enough that they are letting her be a lap baby and fly for free and since it is a red-eye, if the flight is not full, we can actually take the car seat on with us!) and starting to make all the arrangements, I am actually getting happier, the cousins and one aunt and uncle back there, I have not seen since I was EIGHT YEARS OLD!!! OHHHH I so can't wait to see them again!
Two things bring families together, weddings and funerals. At least there is one good thing about funerals. I am so glad you are getting to see all that family! Plus the family drive should be fun (at least it would be to me). It really sounds like you are all getting some good time in together - enjoy it!
Yeah my brother and I talk all the time, he lives in California, so I don't see him as much as I would if he lived here, BUT, I see him a lot. My cousins in Maine and CT, well we are not close at all....so no biggy that I have missed out on that. But still excited!
So the plans are final!!! Yeah, can't wait to see my brother, mom and everyone else.
And in the middle of that... I have a friend (no not Tami) that was married to someone else, who happened to be a BIG B!!! I told that person such, but they didn't listen. How do you tell someone that you still care for them as a person, even though you have fought lately, and that you think they are better off without the other person?
WOOO HOOOO!!!! So I will be in New York City the 4th, 5th and 6th. Then my brother, mom and I as well as our families are driving to Washington DC for another 3 nights, and then on to Maine to see all the family! Total so far for plane and hotel, we have spent close to 2,000. But, you know what? I never get to see those family members, and can't wait!! I really don't take very long vacations, so for this, it is something new!!!
Other then that, DAMMIT!!!! I pulled my right knee, and looks like I may have to have surgery on the right knee. Thank goodness it happened at work, so workmen's comp here I COME!!! Today was HORRIBLE!!! My god, I didn't think a knee could hurt that f**king bad! And that coming from someone that has had 3 surgeries on the left knee. My knee is clicking and grinding with every bend! However, my 9 yr old got GOOOOOOD news from her drs. So lets hope that her news keeps getting better!
Thanks guys for all your help and prayers! It has helped and I love you more then anything!
