Let the Adventure Begin!

Tomorrow I head off to Omaha to see the family! I'm pretty excited since I haven't been there in about 10 years. My sister arrived today. She texted me earlier telling me that tomorrow is Thursday Taco day at the Forum! I asked what that was but she said she wasn't quite sure but Grandpa was really excited! So that is where I am heading the minute I get off the plane tomorrow, to Thursday Taco! LOL! Can't wait!

But before getting there I've already had adventures. First, I got off work an hour early so that I could finish packing and get Duke to the vet on time. Darn car wouldn't start. Dead as a doornail! Thank goodness Dad was off work and out. He swung by to pick me up and then back to his house to pick up Mom's car since she is already in Omaha. Darn thing is so dead you have to use the key to unlock all the doors cuz the switch on the inside does not work! I have no clue what is wrong. Dad said he'd look at it this weekend! Good thing I will be out of town!

Then I dropped Duke off at the vet. Poor baby. Not only is he being boarded for a week but he is also having his annual check up and a dental cleaning! Yep, he is not going to be a very happy doggy when I get home!

While I did get packed, I am going to have to repack because I threw everything into 2 suitcases with no rhyme or reason so that I could get back to my Dad's house for the evening because he wanted me to bring home dinner! I'm staying here because he is bringing me to the airport for 6:30 am! Yuck! Means we have to leave the house by 5:30! Boy, I hope I wake up! Good thing it's a two hour flight from New Orleans to Chicago. I can get a nap in!

But I am so ready to be on vacation! See the family. Eat some good food! I miss it all!
