And so the journey begins...

Post by JMG » Fri Jan 12, 2018 4:55 am

At the airport. Plane doesn't leave for 5 hours, then 8 hour flight, 8 1/2 hour layover, 14 hour flight, 3 hour layover, then the last 1 1/2 hour flight home.

My wife and I have been really short with each other the last couple days. We are both really worn out in just about every way. Great time here and thankful for it, but worn out. Pray I will be kind, gracious, and patient.

Will be praying for safety in the air, on the ground, and in the family.

An absolute freaking nightmare! My wife really screwed up our bookings and we just lost about 2K, probably more once it's said and done. We now have an extra leg on an already exhausting trip. Again, please pray I will be gracious. I feel like I'm about to snap.

Praying. Accept the loss as providence. You'll get it back I'm sure.

Sorry you had to leave behind your dog, JM. But what a happy reunion it will be when you return!

On it. I have faith in you. You won't find another woman like her, you know.

Been there :( praying the rest of your trip has been better and that you're nearly home.
