24 Hours

Thursday, February 07, 2013

In 24 hours from the moment I write this - I'll be at the airport with CHEFKATLEANER heading to Barbados. They are calling for some snow today, but my hope is nothing will delay our take off tomorrow morning... as I know we'll both be so anxious to get there.

I LOVE that our plan for the first day is NO PLAN but hit the beach for the day!!

Thanks MEADSBAY for the tips on packing - I have everything ready to pack but will be mindful of what I bring and leave room maybe to bring a few things back too. From others experience I will also pack a few things in my carry on - just in case the luggage gets mis-routed or delayed (bathing suit is a for sure in there lol).

I have to admit - the past couple of days my head has not been into work...

I picked up a few other last minute items to bring with me. I am well prepared... the homestead is setup. I pick up my step-daughter this evening to bring her here to be with the girls while I'm away. The schools have been notified of my absence and her contact. My girls are quite independent in their routine so I trust all will be good when I'm away. They have our contact info and I have some capacity to text but truly, honestly DISCONNECTING as much as I can....

My written journal will be my companion while I'm away and I will of course take many many photos ...

After many many months of planning, anticipating - I am now 24 hours away from reaching my paradise destination!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Can I come? I can be ready in 5 minutes!

We are expecting a huge snowstorm tomorrow....

They will probably close the airport anyway

You are smart about packing what you need in your carry-on
I went to see my daughter in San Diego for 9 days with just a carry-on

Hope you have a wonderful trip Helene -

    Well, don't do what I did and forget to use sunscreen on your first day! I ended up looking more like a cross between Rudolf and a robin with my red nose and chest.

Have a wonderful time, Helene!
