On Vacation

Tuesday, February 23, 2010

DH and I were worried about the coming weather front here. We were supposed to leave Thusday AM for a trip to visit my MOM in TX. DS is going along too. Anyway, weather people are calling for a "winter hurricane" to rumble thru Wed night into Thursday. Not too much snow called for where I live but further north and east by the airport, things could be iffy on our chances of getting out.

While we were discussing our options, we received an automated call from Southwest advising us to change our flight if at all possible..... at no price increase!!! Luckily DS has off tomorrow, so I was able to rearrange all the travel details...rebooked the airline reservations, printed off the boarding passes, rebooked the extra day for the car and the hotel, finished my packing. Told DH all the good news when he got back from choir practice.

SO I am out of cold snowy MD and traveling to warm sunny southern TX TOMORROW. WOOHOO!!!

I packed my fitness DVDs, my resistance bands, my fitness clothes so I am ready for my workouts. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Will check in when I get back next week!!!

    Hope you are enjoying your time in Tx. We just got some rain you sent our way. Springing is leaping here in Louisiana and it is beautiful and is aggravating some allergies, but not too badly. We have done a lot of exploring (translated... we got lost a lot). Have fun, relax and you will be home again befoe you want to be.

    I love the feel of warmth penetrating done into my bones.. Ah the sun how I miss it.

Are you back? Or are you sparking from Texas? My youngest child (26 years old) is in Austin, TX. So I've been there a couple of times.

I miss sparking and my spark friends so much, but this grandboy takes up every bit of of my time!

I have balooned up in my weight... I'm a naughty girl.

    We are in cold and rainy New Orleans so I hope you get the sunshine we will be envious of. Enjoy your trip.

We did get to bike around yesterday but I wish I had brought my weights along, too. Will have to improvise. Enjoy. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Well, I know that they forecasted snow in Austin, too. So it might not be so warm & sunny, but hopefully it will be.

I'd like to be in Austin myself right about now! Haven't had time to watch the news this morning, too busy tending to animals & shoveling!

    I guess I shouldn't mention that we had snow today in sunny central Texas. But it'll be gone by tomorrow!

What part of Texas are you headed for?
