Off We Go

After much planning, shopping, studying and more shopping, today Bob and I head to Europe. We will meet our son, Joe, and his wife, Aubyron in Malaga, Spain, tomorrow at 4 pm Spain time. To get there we will fly from Orlando to Atlanta (I think this is mandatory for any travel anywhere. My dad always said it’s because they have the best baggage crusher.) Then from Atlanta we fly to Madrid. We will have a five-hour layover there and then on to Malaga.

This past week has been active to say the least. My sweet husband has had a cold/cough and has had to go to work every day in spite of that. He also had things to do for his dad so it’s been non-stop (unlike our airplane travel). I knew he was worn out, but I had no idea how tired he was until he called me into his home office and told me he couldnt figure out how to forward an old email to our son. Sure enough, there was no obvious way. And then something amazing happened – I figured it out. Yes, you read that right. I figured it out (it was worth saying twice).

Now, I should mention that he had spent quite a bit of time working out a computer problem for me earlier that night; but that might take away from my moment of techie genius. I will soar on this triumph for weeks. Even now as I think about it I’m smiling and giving myself a mental high-five.

Part of what Bob was doing for me was making sure I have a keyboard for my iPad so I can blog while we are gone. I am typing on said keyboard right now as a trial. Looks like it’s working so I hope to blog along the way on my trip. I’m sure between Spain, Gibraltar and Paris there will be a lot to tell. With any luck I’ll be posting a few times so you can follow me through Europe. As always, I appreciate all of you who take a few moments to read my blog. You are a blessing to me.

    I can’t wait to see you guys! I like the part about the baggage crusher. It made me laugh out loud…or LoL. Good job on figuring out the email. I was yelling at my computer earlier this evening. It didn’t respond to my threats.

    WIth all you guys are doing, you are still blogging. Amazing. Of course, that word blog is amazing to me. For some reason it makes me thing of someone about to blow their noise. But anyway, enjoy your most fantastic trip. Love you – Chris
