I am going back

I was so determined to 'tough it out' and wait until I could go back to pick up Porkchop. But fate, has intervened. As most of you know I travel for my job going onsite weekly to a different locations to train customers on our reporting software and imaging workstations. Well, it turns out that 2 sites ended up canceling, so the next couple of weeks were going to be home weeks for me. I decided today to book some vacation and personal time and hop on a plane.. I was able to use points to get me to London and will meet up with T there we will fly together to Bishkek. We had talked about the possibility of me coming too but before now I didnt think I had any chance of getting the time off. I am so very excited now. We talked this evening and I will use more points (Hotel) for our overnight stay in London. She has already booked a double room at Demi House (more fate) so I will stay with her and split the cost of the week. I am taking the blankets my Aunt crocheted and the fleece blankets I made for them. I am also taking some clothes that I think Porkchop will outgrow before he comes home for good. More later

I know this isn't the way you hoped to return but I'm so excited you'll get to see and hold and kiss your little man again. I am so excited for you!

Wow. I hope you have a grand time. I am working on holding out until they let me go pick my boy up. I figure now to miss his first birthday, but am hoping for my birthday... in March.

Glad to hear that you're able to travel. I've asked and asked my agency if I can make an interim trip to see Tulla Belle. They keep telling me, "No"...can't understand why lots of others are allowed to travel, but I can't.

Please let me know the dates that you are heading over. I'll send you an email directly.

Best,

Pamela
