This post will be all over the place. Sorry!
First and foremost, thank you for your kind comments to my last post. They really mean alot. I look forward to going through this journey with you. Mine and yours. Ours.
Secondly, still no airfare! I don't know if we should be frantic or not. We have gotten info on NWA's adoption program and United's adoption program. The pickle is we are more interested in United's and it seems to be less expensive, however it is set to expire 3/31/09. And you have to have traveled by then, not just booked. Those "in the know" at United can't imagine it won't be done again this next year, yet it isn't "loaded" in the system at this time. Call back in a few days. OK, but next Tuesday is March 31st......and we leave in 2 weeks and five days. (Not that I am counting down or anything :)) Any ideas anyone please let me know! You know, like OH MY GOODNESS WHAT ARE YOU THINKING.......GET YOUR TICKETS NOW...... or any other advice. LOL
And while we are on the topic of flying. I was looking up some info tonite and started to have a total panic about being "stuck" on that plane for that many hours. YIKES do I need to be THAT out of my mind!! ( I truly need those emoticons faces for my blog--mine would have BIG wide eyes for this one, followed by the green throwing up guy--anyone know where I can get them?!) I did know ahead of time how long it would be, it just hasn't been real for so long. I think I just put it "out there" somewhere and now it is here!! Boy, do I sound like a looney or what?! LOL
Thirdly, we got a FANTASTIC deal for our hotel. I went through Booking.com. One thing I loved about this site was you were able to choose a landmark and max. distance from said landmark for your hotel location. We had decided, if at all possible, to be close to the American Embassy so we could walk there. The Centre Point Saladaeng fit our requirements and then some! We ended up getting 13 nights for just under $700. Woohoo!!
Now, if anyone knows this hotel and it isn't FANTASTIC, please let me know! Then I will look for another great deal!! :)) On Booking.com.
Lastly, my Peanut's Fundraiser will be extended. Check for that tomorrow. I didn't get to advertise quite like I wanted with our travel news and 5% of $70 doesn't go far for a giveaway! ;)) I will also have a ton of stuff listed for sale.
So I will leave you with a LOUD and PROUD-"I'M GETTING MY SON" and I look forward to seeing that on each of your blogs one day, too!!
We are one day closer, little man. And this Mama can't wait.
Celebrating Penny's Birthday!
