Well, today turned into a kerfluffle of flying telephone calls, as my sister and I, my brother and my parents were all trying to coordinate travel plans to go to my grandfather's funeral in central Texas.
I have not been on an airplane in over fifteen years! It was a different world, back then, I guess. Now I have to worry about security issues. I don't think they'll let me bring any atkins shakes with me. Bummer. Guess I'll have to buy those when I get on the ground again.
I had to make a store run to get travel sized stuff, and some low carb snacks, a couple of brainless novels to read during flight, etc.
I keep checking and re-checking baggage restrictions. And I can barely wrap my head around what to pack, not to mention what's for supper. Today was such a day. My card file system was utterly ignored, as the normal was replaced with activities outside of the scope of normal.
Although I'm not looking forward to getting up at pre-dawn hours to get there in time for my 6:35 a.m. flight departure time, I do think that it's a bit exciting to be getting on an airplane again. And, I'm looking forward to hangin' with my sister, seeing the rest of my family, including cousins and aunt-n-uncle types of people.
The rest of my family will hold down the fort here.
May PeePaw's memory be eternal.
