Leaving…

18 Feb

Am finally packed, think Sir is packed, have maybe weighed the suitcases for the last time.  No, we are not traveling light, not at all.  i’m taking a zillion things for my daughter and granddaughter, most of them requested on her list of things they want and need in Very-Far-Away.  

There were times i felt like i was on a Treasure Hunt, trying to track down the exact right item to her specifications.  But that’s DONE.

We have two suitcases, crammed to the gills, weighing in at 47 and 48 pounds respectively, hoping the airline scales are in the same ballpark as ours.  Sir has His suitcase that has some things He wanted to take for a hobby of his, which i won’t go into here.  We have two carry-ons, both stuffed, and we each have a backpack.

We will be the traveling gypsies.

Tonight, we spend the night in an airport.  THAT should be fun all by itself…  But this morning, this is playing in my head…

i may be back from time to time, but know that i’m thinking of youall often!

    Enjoy your vacation time! Far Far away is lovely and warm, and there are babies there! I wouldn’t put that adorable little pumpkin down the whole time if it was me (well, maybe changing time, the perks of being grandma)

    Have a great time. At least your bags will be lighter on the way home. It will be interesting to see if the airport scales are on the up and up. We’ll miss you but just have fun.

    Since we always weigh our suitcases too, I have finally figured out that airlines will usually let you get away with anything under 52lbs…

    I hope you are having a great time, I bet your daughter and granddaughter were super happy to have you!
