They are so fast and loud, you can't help but have goose bumps!! It just is so American..it makes you proud.
I am up early. In 11 days we will be flying across the big pond. That is if everything is in order again, like no volcanic clouds over Iceland, no airline strike...you get the picture.
So, as predicted, I am having crazy dreams. It always happens this way. You would think after all these years of traveling, the dreams would subside. I just heard Dr. Oz say that during REM sleep, your arms and legs are partially paralyzed so that you do not act out your dreams. That is a good thing, because all last night I was back in my childhood home waiting for the school bus and I keep missing it. You know, it just doesn't seem right for a child to have so much "missing the bus" stress before school. I can't believe I am still experiencing it.
The Trout must be having dreams also. He woke me in the middle of the night to remind me to get out the passports so we don't forget them. That dream will start closer to take-off for me. I find myself at the airport in my dreams, and without passport.
I have been reading on different blogs that computers are crashing. Several years ago, we got a second computer, a laptop. That is the one I use. It has been getting slower and slower so yesterday we took it in to be over-hauled before something bad happens. So, I am sharing the desktop with the Trout. That also means I will be cutting down the time I use the computer for a few days which is probably a good thing. I have much to take care of before we go on this trip.
Oh yes, we are driving 15 hours to get to the airport. Isn't that a hoot? Our bichon is getting older and we do not have the heart to put her in a kennel anymore. So, we are taking her to our daughter's house so that she can have a good time with her family while we are gone. It also gives us a wonderful chance to spend some time with our grandsons again. We see them several times a year, but do miss all the grandkids a lot.
