Wow...what a birthday present, huh? My bday wasn't that exciting, though I did have lunch with my sister and a wonderful dinner with my hubby...sigh. Did I mention how much I love him?
Anyway, we discovered if I left on Sunday, it was way cheaper than if I'd gone today, and we decided I was going. I know it's one of those mixed feeling things -- I would definitely rather go with my hubby than go alone, but since he can't come, and reviewing the next couple of years (like ugh, we are going to have missionaries!) The chances of our going while we are young enough to appreciate it is pretty thin.
This is much like the time I went to San Diego by myself for a mommy's weekend. It's much the same, and about the same cost. (isn't that bizarre...) If anyone wants to see me, I'm going to try and find the Duke statue where they have a live camera every day to say hi to my family. I'll wave at anyone!
I'll be doing lots of writing, walking, taking pictures and painting. It's going to be amazing. I'm going to miss my family soo much I don't even want to think about it. I keep hoping I'm doing the right thing, but I'm so excited!!
On a side note...conference has been wonderful so far, especially Elder Worthlin's talk and seeing the support from the other brethren, it brought tears to my eyes.
If I have access to a computer, I'll try and write some on my blog. If I don't, then you'll know why.
Have a good one!
