The pressure's on...

We worked for hours online yesterday trying to get reservations for 9! to fly to Florida for a few days to see Grandma over the holidays. You can only book 6 at a time so we tried to coordinate it on 2 computers. The reservation for 3 went through and the one for 6 did not!!

It took 3 hours to get flights for the six! Finally we got it several hours apart and different airlines. Fortunately, we booked the three boys together, including Mike who has a lot of traveling experience.

I guess we'll meet there!

Then, while trying to calm down from the stress of wondering if only a couple members of the family would make it to visit Grandma, I suddenly realized how little time I have to get everything else done. Yikes, I was up for another couple hours thinking of how I was going to make this happen, how things could be simplified, etc.

Somehow it will work. Not everything will be done. It's OK. Preparing our hearts for the Lord, loving Him and loving each other is what it's all about, right? Yup. I'm OK.

Oh, Rosemary, this sounds so stressful, but your focus is where it should be and that is what really matters. I'm sure grandma will appreciate this.

While reading this, I envisioned the scene in Home Alone -- where the family discovers they are minus one child.;)

Have a blessed Christmas!

Pax et Bonum!

Yay! I'm so glad you'll get to travel, but what a trial, ugh.

Yikes, Jean! I better count the kids in the car! Ha!
Thanks, Mimi. It will be a fun trial, though.
