Headed to Dallas

This morning my daughter, my son-in-law, and I head to Dallas.  Oh no, not together.  I'm flying.  If I were going with them, I wouldn't arrive until this evening, and I'd miss out on a lot of the fun at the gathering of Internet friends I'm attending.  Besides, my daughter and her hubby deserve a road trip with just the two of them along, don't you think?

I did think it rather funny that we're all going to be in the same vicinity on the same weekend, considering they don't do a lot of road trips.  None of us knew about the other's plans when we plotted our agendas.

I haven't yet decided whether I'm taking my laptop.  It would give me something to do in my room when I wake up at 4 A.M. (which I always do).  But do I want another thing to juggle, getting on and off the plane?  Will they let me on with a laptop, a purse AND a carry-on bag?

This will be my first time ever staying in a motel room alone.  Any other time I've gone to one of these things, I roomed with some other lady for economy's sake.  Or with Cliff, if he happened to go.

Poor Cliff.  He gets in bed at 1 A.M., and I'm going to have to start waking him up at 5 this morning so he can take me to the airport.  I've promised him this will be the last time this year I fly anywhere.

I expect you may not read this until you return unless you decide to take the "notebook" aka lap top.
I leave about 5:30AM tomorrow morning(Sat.) and will be at breakfast with you all.
Looking forward with great anticipation and excitement to seeing you again and all our old buds. And KID for the first time for me.

Why don't you take your essentials out of your purse and put them on your person or in your carry on bag.  I think they only allow two carry on items per person now.  I may be wrong however.  Linda

I'm so excited for you!  Poor Cliff  He can go back to bed when he gets back home...right?  Anyway, ya you should be able to bring all three on the MIL did.  They took EVERYTHING on with them.  They each had a suitcase (carryon size) and my son had his laptop and a my daughter had her purse and a laptop bag too.  Plus their suitcases.

Hope you have a nice trip!  I love staying in hotels on my own.  I like to get room service and kick back with a movie. No screaming kids or spouse to interrupt. LOL

Wish I was heading for TX too! But I get to go late in May.  Take your laptop. (I know! Too late for that advice) They will let you on with all that.  Have fun!

  HOPE THAT YOU HAVE GREAT WEATHER!  I would take MY laptop; some hotels have a computer room (erase your cookies & history).
   Cliff will be happy to see you home; absence makes the heart grow fonder.
