I got back late last night. My flight was delayed twice....I had a good laugh about the delay in Dallas. I THOUGHT I'd finish a book I'd tucked into my luggage. HOWEVER, they changed our gate of departure about 8 times in one hour. (That may be a fanciful enhancement - it MAY have been only 5...felt like about 20 but that time of night).
I had a great time and am processing. I'll post more later. I went not knowing a soul and came home with 30 - 40 sisters. That type of experience takes a bit of time to process. ::snort:: Mel (MH - I KNOW who you are! ::snort::) - I hardly missed blogging....but now I'm itching to get current. I think I did well to only fall off the no-blog wagon ONCE - don't you? I thought of sneaking into Deb's computer room early one morning; but decided I wasn't THAT neurotic...yet! ::snort::
What's up with this? At the airport????
Mike got tired of putting $100 of gas in the van every week. It's a 2002 Toyota Corolla with 60K on it. He figures it will last us a long, long time.
I asked what I would get when I got back from the International Conference if this garnered a car. I'm dying to go DRIVE.....the emergency fund took a big hit...but Mike's right that this will save us quite a bit of $ each month.
Thanks for all the input on which mini-van we should buy. ::snort:: I'm really o.k. with this....I am excited about the idea of a sporty car rather than the 15 pass tank....and I can take 4 at a time with me.
