SHAN! SHAN! SHAN!

As of 7:oo pm tonight our friend Shan should be in the air on her way to London England.(Please god make sure they are on schedule or those responsible will die a long slow painfull death by Shannon's own hand).

Boy oh boy you should of been on the other end of the telephone to her today...I think my ears are still bleeding!

First call..this morning .....Shan "OMG I AM A NERVOUS WRECK!"
Me "I know what u mean, I get that way before travelling, but u will be just fine. ......
We went on to talk about all sorts of things, I had her laughing and forgetting some of her stress especially when I asked her who was driving her to the airport. Apparently her mom was.....SKREACHHHH!!! I said ...OMG why?? Shan you want to get there in one piece don't you? sheesh...last time her mom drove her somewhere they got into an accident...so I suggested she drive there and let mom drive herself home lol.
Later we chatted online, her still no having finished packing.....so I told her to stop talking and chatting and get all that done.....THEN and only THEN can she sit back down and get on with her stressfull ranting........(she knows I lubs her)

Couple hours later..............phone rings....... pick up........OMG MONETTE I AM FREAKING!! OUT!! Remember that garmet bag I was so proud of that I got for a great price??? OMG it won't even close..I can't even fold it up ...FUCK ME RUNNING!! I WILL HAVE TO USE THE BIG ASS SUITCASE NOW DAMNIT!!!..................(u get the drift of her mind set I take it?)

ME............ok Shan..BREATH... now what all do u have in that thing that it won't close?....

ME............just 5 outfits shouldn't keep a garment bag from closing
SHAN........well u know, its jeans, tops and sweaters

So all was finally well, and Shan was ready ......she was leaving for the airport around 3:30 pm....her flight left tonight at 7:00 pm....arriving in England at 5:00 am our time but will be 11:oo am their time.
She will be meeting up with some of our dear friends that have chatted with many of us over years and I hope she has a great time. She will be home tuesday next week. This is her last hurra before she starts nursing school next week. I am so proud of her for making a bunch of life changes to finally persue a long term dream of hers of becoming a nurse.
BONNE VOYAGE MY FRIEND........

Oh and I wanted to go too. Who is she going to stay with? By herself in England? Hope she has fun and takes lots of pics!! :) Does this mean she won't be posting?

LOL,,, She called me from the airport before her first flight left, and she was STILL a basket case,, but a very excited one, i'd love to see her face when she gets there, I hope she has tons of fun.

LOL,i feel guilty about aggravating her that morning while i was at work.

Shannon said...

God ya'll are a bunch of heartless psychopathic wenches!!

LMAO and thanks for having a sense of humor with me. I'd never been on my own like that before, I've always had someone holding my hand (ended up that I still needed someone to hold my hand when I was there but that's a story for my blog) and telling me where to go (and with nice colorful maps to boot!). So doing something like this was a huge deal for me. I had a lot of support from you all and I thank each and every one of you!

Had a brilliant time. Stories and pictures to follow.
