Bon voyage

My brand-new laptop took a nose dive off the tray table during a turbulent moment.

The airline lost one of my bags--the one containing the booster seat I purchased especially for the trip.

I managed to reserve a rental car from the one company that didn't actually have a counter at the airport. We had to be ferried to a "convenient location" "nearby" to get our car.

I forgot all the cute jewelry I wanted to wear (which I rarely take out in Mayberry, because what's the point?).

Women all over SoHo are wearing leggings and skinny jeans.

... But I'm in the city that never sleeps, and I left the boy who never sleeps at home with his daddy. So it's all good.

(I do miss the little punkin. But his sister is a much more relaxing travel companion.)

Have a great trip! Hope the you, the gal, and your laptop all make it in one piece. :)

Have a blast and for the love of God, resist the leggings and skinny jeans. It won't last and they are evil.

Tacy and I are so jealous that we can't see straight. Actually, I haven't told her that Jo is back in New York, because I'm sure that she dial United to make reservations.

Sounds like a bumpy ride thus far, but one I'd definitely endure to be back there too, even for a business trip.

Oh what a fabulous thing to complain about huh?
I love it. I am assuming your laptop survived because you posted.....or did you give your hubby dictation over the phone?

Just think Chicago is but a week away........

Have a blast and just go to Chinatown and pick up some dazzling jewelry there!!!

ha. at least we know it will take at least a year before the stupid skinny jeans fad hits hard here. Hopefully by then it will have faded into oblivian
