Until We Meet Again…

We’ve just come home from dropping our suitcases off at our friends’ home. Bright and early tomorrow morning, we will drive back to their house to be picked up by the airport shuttle. We will slug our way down the freeway until we reach the airport and our terminal. With rolling suitcases behind us, we will approach the counter, check in our bags, get our boarding passes, make our way through Security, and then head on over to our gate. From there, it’s a walk onto the airplane where we will find our seats and begin our journey. Ireland…here we come.

I’m not taking my laptop with me so, unless I can find my way to an Internet café or public library, I will be away from BlogLand until we return on June 24th. If I manage to call Lynn while we’re traveling, she has promised to keep you updated on her blog with the latest news from across the sea.

I want to thank everyone for allowing me the opportunity to share my preparation for this adventure…you’ve all been extremely patient. And I also want to thank everyone for your travel suggestions, pep talks, and good wishes. I couldn’t have done it without you.
