Last Friday Calvin and I kissed Olivia and Wyatt good-bye, and boarded a plane for Dallas, Texas. I was going to visit my friend, Andi, whom I have been promising to visit for a couple years, and have never made it. I finally made it.
The trip started a little rocky. The woman at the check in counter lost my drivers liscence. It was on her desk behind something or other — I never got the clear story. But we couldn’t find it after ten minutes of searching. Finally, in fear of missing my flight, the counter lady gave me a “pass” to get through security. When they finally did find it, they mailed it to Wyatt, who in turn overnighted it to me, so I could get on the plane coming home!
Once we were actually in Dallas things went much smoother. Andi and I didn’t do a whole lot. One day we went bridesmaid dress shopping, but didn’t find anything. The other days we just went on walks and cooked, and did art projects. We tried a new art form called “Batik”— it was cool. Andi’s turned out much better than mine, her fabric didn’t have such a tight weave. I also worked on my wood carving and photography.
On the flight home the airline lost my bag. It finally came in, and Delta delivered it to my home — at 3:00 am! They pounded on the door waking everyone including baby Cal. Ugh. But at least the bag came!
It was a fun little jaunt to Texas. It was fun to hang out with Andi and not HAVE TO do anything at all. Those are the most relaxing days to me.
