I can't believe it! It is really happening! Oh my, where do I start with packing! and Man, am I tired! are all thoughts that have been going through my head since yesterday.
Around 10:30 am on Tuesday, January 28, hubby got his itinerary. At that point I responded to the email and asked the travel agent to add the rest of our family and I attached copies of our passports. Then we waited...and waited...and waited. Then at 3:30 am on Wednesday, January 29, we got an email. A reminder to confirm hubby's info. WHAT?!? They hadn't gotten my reply! PANIC sets in as I quickly forward my original reply to them (and BCC myself). Ten minutes later they reply and ask for all the passport info in a different format (not sure what happened) so I spend 20 minutes fixing it and send if off again. More waiting, and waiting and waiting. Finally, at 10:30am (almost exactly 24 hours after the original email from them) we get our Golden (e)Tickets!!
We leave Saturday, February 1 from Phoenix, Arizona. Then after a 6 hour lay-over in Chicago we will arrive in Abu Dhabi around 7:30pm on Sunday, February 2!
After we got our tickets I emailed family and friends with the info and then took a 4 hour nap! It is exhausting to check your email every 30 minutes or so every night for a week! ;)
Posts might be spotty here for a couple weeks but I hope you hang in there with us because we are about to embark on the adventure of a lifetime!
