London here we come
Tuesday, April 20, 2010
Yesterday's post was about the mess in my life,,,,,while it is still there it is not going to suck the life out of well my life.
London.....went there as a teenager and have always always wanted to return. I proudly tell everyone that I am second generation american as my grandfather (what we had to call him) was born in England in the 1880's and came to america but through Canada. You see just in case us/england went to war again LOL he couldn't become a citizen
so last week we learned that our settlement from a car accident was going to be a little bit more than expected. Now I could do something responsible like a screen porch or a car for the teenage drivers or even put in towards my mtg. However I know without doubt that I will never be in this financial situation ever again. I will never be able to take my children on a trip like this EVER. Never mind with oldest off to college and others not far behind when will we truly have the time like this??? Ok a bit dramatic but with summer jobs. mission trips and such even arranging this was not the easiest and they all still live at home!
So now the planning begins. We don't have passports so have to rush on those,
Trying to figure out where to stay exactly what to do when is proving a bit overwhelming.
We know the basics of what we want to do but this isn't like planning a trip to NYC and you have lots of people to ask for resources.
The conversion rate isn't helping much either...ouch $1 equals .655 GBP
then i get confused about the euro thing too
Hotels are so expensive and they charge per person per night even for the kids
But we are excited we are going to leave 2 days after graduation YEAHThen life sneaks back in....I do not want husband to go. Thinking that he should use that time and move out. But of course that is going to be a hurdle to cross. What will kids think? The flip side is if we go and tensions are high do we really want to be fighting the whole time?
Of course he would never say...you go with the kids let's do what's best for them.. But again he doesn't know I know about HER and his Love you text.
Ok honest part...did have a few pieces of cheese last night thinking about him and this situation.
I have moved out of the bed but as we don't have an extra bedroom means I am sleeping on our couch. I've set my alarm to wake after he leaves so I am in bed before the kids come out in the morning. But crap forgot to remake the couch before I went in wonder if they were coherent enough to notice before their ride got here at 7 (like most teenagers they get up 15 minutes before they have to leave)
Sorry interrupted by phone call.....I guess I need to expect to hear friends ask you won't take him back maybe he's turned to someone else b/c he missed you~~~~~~ok not going to run to the blueberry cake inside....I hope
