My travel log

Wednesday, May 26, 2010

I woke up at 6AM Wednesday morning my time which corresponds to 11PM Tuesday night at the final destination I will be going to in the USA.

I will leave for the airport around 9:30PM Wednesday evening, my local time, corresponding to 2:30PM Wednesday afternoon final destination time.

The flight leaves at 02:05AM Thursday morning, (HOPEFULLY) local time which corresponds to 7:05pm Wednesday evening final destination time.
I can't possibly explain the whole airport process and have anyone who has not lived in this part of the world understand why we have to be there so early.

Flight is scheduled to land at 8:30AM Thursday morning in the USA. Then a 4-5 hour layover for another 1 hour flight to another destination for a 1 hour wait for a 2 hour bus trip to my final destination sometime around 5PM USA time.

Now the 14 hour trans-Atlantic flight is fully booked and I don't sleep well on planes but with this long of a flight, I will take a Simply Sleep tablet and hopefully I can get at least 5 hours sleep.

So back to cleaning and last minute packing. See you on the other side of the pond,.

I LOVE my DH

Tuesday, May 25, 2010

I decided I didn't want a wii thing because it's just too expensive to suit me and we have other things that we could use the money for. Well today he asked me how you go about ordering something and having it sent for an in store pick up, so I told him how to do it and he said he was ordering my wii! He had a $50 gift card left from last summer that I got him using points from MyPoints. Now I will have to have my grandson come to my house and show me how it works, LOLOL. That is a lovely surprise, I told him that is my belated anniversary present. So now I need to make sure my printer back home works so I can print out my order! I can't wait to try it out.

In less than 48 hours I'll be back on US soil. My journey will begin Wednesday morning when I get up in the morning because I don't get to the airport until around 9PM for a 01:50AM flight. The flight is 14 hours nonstop and it is booked full.

I also checked the weather when I arrive, all I can do is laugh.
JFK:Thursday:
Scattered thunderstorms. Highs in the low 80s and lows in the upper 50s.

Boston:Thursday:
Showers. Highs in the low 70s and lows in the upper 50s.

Concord: Thursday:
Showers. Highs in the low 80s and lows in the low 50s.
Friday: Partly cloudy. Highs in the upper 60s and lows in the mid 40s.

HOME: Friday:
Partly cloudy. Highs in the mid 60s and lows in the mid 40s.
I hope my flannels are still on the bed where I left them in October.

    I have a friend who just got a WII but hasn't figured out how to use it yet. I have thought about getting one but too much money for my pocketbook. I need other things first (like a large monitor so I can actually see what I type.....LOL

Have a safe flight home.

    Yes, but that is the report given today. Those numbers could change New England weather and all.

I am sure you will love the Wii. It is a lot of fun.

Have a safe journey home.

New Hampshire SparkPeople meet & greet!

Wednesday, May 19, 2010

I am getting excited. On Sunday June 26, our New Hampshire teams are having a SparkPeople meet & greet gathering. This will be the the 3rd gathering. WE had 2 last summer and I hope we can continue to meet over the summer. If you are a New Hampshire SparkPerson and would like to attend our picnic, check with your New Hampshire Spark team leaders for more information, we would LOVE to meet you!

Today's magic number is..........8 !!!!! 7 days, one week from today, Wednesday, I leave for the airport to begin a 14 hour trip back to the USA. 8 days until I arrive in the USA for 4 1/2 months of fun!

One of my best, closest and dearest friends will hopefully get to come visit. She planned to come last year but was rushed to the hospital just a few hours before she was supposed to leave. She was diagnosed with lung cancer that had spread to her brain. She has undergone chemo and mega drugs. She is doing ok and no new cells have popped up. Her hair is growing back. She is taking this pretty well. I am so very excited to see her and a couple of our other friends may just come up to see her so we'll have a girlie weekend! Woo Hoo, can't wait!
