This holiday season is going to be one hell of an adventure!
Tickets are bought and plans are made. I will be flying to Oregon to visit my family the weekend before Christmas. Why the weekend before? It’s the time that fits best with everyone’s work schedule. My mother, who works too much already as it is, is working on Christmas Day. I know, she’s nuts…we love her anyway.
After a few days in Winston, a 3 and a half hour drive to Portland will catch me a flight back to Phoenix. I will have about 24 hours in Phoenix before I fly out to Reno. I will then be spending Christmas Eve driving the love of my life back to Phoenix so we can spend Christmas Day together at my house. Shortly after that, we hop back in the car and drive to Houston where she can wait for all of her Earthly possessions to show up at her new place there.
It looks like I will have about enough time to get one good night’s sleep before I catch a flight from Houston, back to Phoenix. Work has been crazy busy this month (AWESOME!) so I need to get back as soon as possible to get right back to work and make sure I hit those deadlines and make my clients happy.
It should be a fun Holiday season but it’s going to be the 2010 version of Planes, Trains and Automobiles except without the fun-loving travelling shower curtain ring salesman.
