We had to buy our tickets so close to traveling because we needed to see the signed letter with our date for sure. It was a two hour event on the phone with the airline. She was amazingly helpful trying to help us use our skymiles but it didn't work. Oh well. I watched the price of plane tickets change before my eyes. They went up over fifty dollars just while we were trying to book them. Delta is great though, she managed to give me the price I first saw online and that was helpful.
I am soooooooo excited! I cannot wait to see the kids! My husband is more excited than me and has an amazing attitude about the whole trip. He says its going to be a great vacation. I am going to keep thinking like him... well I'm trying... I am way excited!
Now to lists and packing. My kids will be well taken care of by family. Just don't know how my house will survive... and the laundry too! There is another list I have to make. I thought it would be a good idea to have a sealed envelope to the kids for every day I am gone that will have a special message for them every day. I suppose it will be good to include those motherly words like "turn the lights off in the basement before you go to school" and "make sure the dog's water isn't frozen".
Ukraine...here we come!
