I'm Going Home!

That's right. Last week Zach approached me and told me he wanted to do something nice for me. I assumed he meant something completely different than what he did, for he told me on his next long weekend I should fly home. I was floored! I haven't been home in over a year. Sure, I saw my mom in March but I miss home. When I mentioned it to my mom I took her by surprise and she didn't seem too keen on the idea (but then again I was looking to fly into Milwaukee to save money and she'd have to drive there).

So my hopes were dashed and then Zach said I should fly to D.C. to see some friends. Well, ticket prices kept rising as the dates drew nearer. I hadn't heard back from my friend. Another one bites the dust.

Plan C fell through too. My friend and I thought we could take a road trip to Savannah, GA or somewhere else for a little getaway.

I was down in the dumps. Now what? It was too much to fly home! Time is nearing, as we're talking this coming WEDNESDAY. Well, after some discussion and searching it looks like I'll be flying home after all. In only 5 DAYS!!!!!!!! And I'll be there for 5 DAYS as Zach has a LONG weekend, plus took off some time. He is SO sweet! After this he deserves to fly to Green Bay for a Packer game and some guy time with his buddy that lives there.

An update on the r's...so far since the bug guy came back we haven't seen any. I'm praying that between their 'hotels' and the spray that they're dying off in the droves wherever they may be. I'm also praying I'm not greeted by mice when I go home. The r's seem to like Zach, but the mice like to visit me when I stay with my mom!

Awesome! You'll get to see the fall colors and everything!! BTW, if you are ever considering flying into Milwaukee....I'm always looking for an excuse to go north and appreciate adult company and Milwaukee's right on the way....

Where will you be flying into?
I'm so excited for you! Say hello to Aura for me! =)

Hey Becca....I will keep that in mind, thanks. Even flying into Chicago is cheaper! I'll be flying into Hancock this time. Not like we can fly home often. I can't wait to see the colors!

It is a beautiful time to head to the U.P! Enjoy your trip, I can't even *imagine* that many days alone!

I can't wait for you to come home too. The r may be around as they have been really bad this year being so dry and coming in for water and food. I don't know if they are upstairs, I sure hope not! But they have been in the basement and hope they are confined there. Kim put poison out for one he seen recently and part of it was taken! So beware of the r when you come. I hope I am able to hear you scream over the machine! lol A friend of mine was saying r was eating right out of the dog dish in the house and the dog didn't do anything, thinking that it was a part of what belonged in there. The dog will go after the r's outside though. I wish the kids and Zach were coming too. Would like to see them as well. Thanks Zach for giving Jamie this time home and watching the kids. Have fun with them and where do you think they will end up sleeping? lol Love you.
