Finalizing Travel PlansJune 1, 2009
My mom and I had another long discussion yesterday about travel plans for August. My last day of work will be Friday, August 7th. I’m planning to use Saturday to wrap up my packing, and then we’ll get on the road first thing Sunday morning. We’re going to break the 20-something hour trip up into two days–definitely an improvement over our Spring Break driving marathon. We have family in Alabama, so we’re going to make a little detour and spend Sunday afternoon and night with them. Then we’ll get back on the road at a leisurely pace Monday, and get into Orlando late Monday night. Tuesday, we’re planning to spend the day at the beach, and then Wednesday is the big day–CHECK-IN! (And Ikea. 🙂 )
This is all just tentative. My mom’s going to fly back, and they only have flights early Monday, Wednesday, and Friday mornings. So we may not leave until Monday, and then we could do the beach on Thursday. In fact, she might not even get to go–we’ve been trying to sell our old house for months now, and until that happens, the extra hotel bills and plane ticket may not be in the budget. We’ll just have to see.
But either way, it is exciting to have an actual plan. Just a little over two months to go now! So exciting! 🙂
