They're leaving . . on a jet plane!

No matter how much snow we get tonight, the parentals are leaving on a jet plane tomorrow--I don't care where they go, but they will go. I called dad to say that if the weather was bad today up there then we would drive up there and drive them back . . .his response "Gee, you REALLY want to get rid of us, don't you!"

They are coming in to our house today and then tomorrow I am supposed to take them to the airport. We are supposed to get about 6 inches of snow--which means in these here parts (due South of where Jenster is from!) everything shuts down and the grocery stores get cleaned out of milk, bread, eggs, and apparently cherry yogurt.

Oh well. I just want this trip to be a good one for them. Mom hasn't flown in over 40 years, and dad hasn't flown in a long time. They are going to TX to see my brother and his family. They will stay for about 3 weeks. Then they will come home and they will be radically different for the experience! This is my hope--that they find renewed vigor for life, and realize just what they have been missing my staying holed up at home for the last 10 years.

Should be very interesting!

I love your childlike imagination! So refreshing! LOL!!!

You guys are actually supposed to get more than us! And I'm not hearing 10 inches this way anymore. That's all in NJ.

I hope you're right about the trip!

I hope your hope "They will be radically different for the experience" comes true. I hope they have a great time.

They're calling for 10-12 inches here.

Did your parents get to go on their trip? I heard on the TV where flights have been cancelled.
