Anyway, I went to Cleveland to keep Caitlin and Holli company while Kevin worked a week of nights shifts. When I visit, I usually help her cook and clean, along with getting her out of the house to shop and dine out some. Well, the day I got there, we did get out to go to the yarn shop and out to eat that evening. However, when I awoke the next day, I knew that I was getting pretty sick and needed to get even more medicine in my body before things got out of hand. I ended up getting an antibiotic called in and also picked up some Tylenol, cough syrup and cough drops while I was there. Unfortunately, Caitlin ended up cooking breakfast for me the first few days I was there and one day I didn't even get out of my pajamas until 5 that evening when I ventured out to grocery shop with her.
I was determined to keep going no matter how I felt because I don't get to spend much time with my girls and I wanted to make the best of things no matter what.
As it grew closer to the day when I would be leaving, the news began talking about another winter storm that would be heading our way...the night before I was to fly home (ugh...). I called Robby and got him to check that report out and he said he thought I would be OK. I wasn't so sure about that.
I couldn't believe that we were going to actually take off in that weather. All I could see in the distance was snow plows continually running back and forth. But board that plane, we did. We then taxied out and sat there for about an additional 15-20 minutes while they de-iced the plane. At that point I was just praying that we got out of there safely and I got back to the south. I needed to be back in the south. I needed to see the sun again.
Well, I made it hope with no problems at all this time and was so happy to see not only my hubby but grass and roads without ice and snow on them. But I was sad that Caitlin and Holli had to stay there in that Arctic Tundra. No problem...we just scheduled them a flight to come south themselves in about a week and a half so they can hopefully enjoy some warmer weather, the sun...AND some crawfish and king cake! HEY...I've said it many times before..."There's no place like HOME...And the south!"
