So, we are sitting here at the airport in Columbia, waiting to board the plane to Washington. If I were a good mom I would take a picture of Tim and I at the beginning of our journey. I guess I'm not a good mom, because I'm going to skip it. Who needs a picture of me and Tim sitting in an airport. Not the part of the journey that I really want to remember anyway.
We got out of the house just fine, and I think I managed to remember everything I needed, even after waiting til the last minute to pack. Anna gave me the biggest hug before we left and then stood at the front window with Pearl waving and blowing me kisses. So sweet. I even had to have Tim back up so I could see her for just a bit longer.
Cameron went home with a friend yesterday after school for the weekend, so I didn't really get to say good-bye to him except over the phone. I wish I could have given him a big hug good-bye, but it didnt' happen. He doesn't seem real heart broken over it.
So, we headed out, stopped at Star bucks to get a coffee for the ride to the airport and then we were on our way. Tim programmed the airport into the GPS and we were off. We got almost the entire way here, and then things started to look strange. Well, Tim had programmed the wrong airp0rt into the GPS and we were going to the wrong one. Fortunately we were only about 10 miles out of our way. I of-course freaked, Tim kept playing with the GPS and I just wanted him to GET. US. TO. THE. AIRPORT. We managed to make it with plenty of time to spare. Sometimes technology can bite you in the behind! He knew how to get to the airport but instead listened to the instructions of the australian lady talking out of a box!
I'm very anxious about the trip. My stomach is a bit upset. I'm wondering if I puked right now, if they would let me on the plane. I better just keep my cookies down and not risk it! I had Tim get me some cracker combos and a diet coke to soothe my stomach. That seems to be helping.
I really can not wait to see and hear the sights and sounds of Ethiopia. I can't imagine what my next post is going to be like.... because we will have gotten to see our Sara Joy! Be prepared for some excitement!
I can't believe we are now on our way!!!!
