I am going on vacation to Georgia on saturday for a week! smilewinkgrin    I have been soooo looking forward to it.  My sister lives out there by herself and I haven't seen her for a year.  She is going through some rough times right now with her depression, but my dh and I are planning to bring her lots of laughs.  My dh has never been to GA so we will put some tourist stops in there for him.  I've been there a few times over the years, I'd be fine just hangin' out on the porch with a bottle of wine. tongue    But we will squeeze in a few afternoons like that.
I haven't been to well lately.  I think after my massive leg pain that kept me from work a couple weeks, for a week and a half, and trying to mental and physically prepare myself for the trip is taking its toll.  Being at work all day and not getting home until late and getting my stuff together (bills paid, laundry, odds and ends) is I think being a little too stressful, but I keep thinking of the beautiful light at the end of this tunnel. :-)   
I called the airlines yesterday and asked for a wheelchair.  I kept thinking I can just push through it and walk the terminal and stand in the securtiy check line.  Ugh!  Sounds exhausting talking about it....Anyways, I thought it would help to keep me from being so wore out b/4 I see my sis.  Btw, I am flying first class, so that should be more relaxing than the coach seats.
Thanx for listening.  I just wanted to share, I'm excited....If ya can't tell,LOL! tongue

Hey Lori!

What a wonderful time you have planned. Please enjoy every fun moment with sis and hubby. You are one very wise woman to order that wheelchair. Many of us, me included, tend to let our ego get in the way but why suffer when you don't have to.

Have a blast!

Lori I wish you very little pain and lots of good times!!!! The next time I have to go to airport I will be swallowing my pride too and and ask for wheelchair so I'm not exhausted before I even get on the plane. My days of running through airports loaded down with luggage is over.
luv and hugs

THANX a bunch for the well wishes! :-)

Marlee...I waited til this last tuesday to finally call the airlines for a wheelchair. I kept telling myself, "remember how you get just going to the mall", so I have to because I will be miserable when I see my sister standing there waiting for me at baggage claim after such a long walk and bumping into people and such. My dh will be with me to carry all the goods, but he'll probably use my lap for some.LOL....

Sherine....No probs in the making of memories dept. I plan too! We always have such laugh fests...:-)
