The Party's Over!

Well I knew it wouldn't last forever, but I was hoping.
It's time to go back, leave my home and children again and get
back to work, the mission needs me, at least I hope so.
I spent Thursday with Heather, taking things back and running
errands.  Friday morning I packed my things, picked up the house,
said goodbye to Mom and Jo and Patti.  I cried, I really wanted
to stay.  There are so many projects I'd like to get started on.
But, I know those projects will wait for me and be here when I 
get home next year.
Courtney and I stopped to get lunch, dropped Bart's Jeep off at Mom's,
forgot to fill it with gas, ran to a gas station, ended up at two different
stations before it would take my card, no clue why, got back to Mom's,
said goodbye to her again, Heather picked me and Courtney up and
we headed to the airport.  That's when we hit this. (pictured above)
We hit bumper to bumper traffic around Riverdale and it did not look
good.  We turned on the radio and found out that there was a serious
accident in Roy and the way it was looking, I was going to miss my flight.
I called the airport and they said I had to be checked in 90 minutes 
before the flight or no go.  It was going to be close.  
We chose to get off the freeway, which took forever, and take the old
highway, that's when we came across the accident.  A family was on their
way out of town with a trailer and it had rolled.  They were actually putting
the rolled truck on the tow truck and pulled away from the accident,
ambulances and police cars right in front of us.
Long story short, we made it to the airport 5 minutes late, the girls dropped 
my off at the curb, I ran in, the lady sent me through, I ran back to the
car, grabbed my bags, hugged the girls and I was off.
I guess it was all for the best, I couldn't have taken a long tearful
goodbye, I might not have gotten on the plane.  Tender mercies.
Tender mercies, all the way along.  Thank you to everyone, for
all you did and for the love and support of Courtney's graduation
and for my little visit back home.  Love to you all.

  1. We LOVED having you visit! Sorry it was so crazy with us moving at the same time. :p I agree the quick goodbye helped but I did tear up a bit on the way home. I can't wait for the final time we pick you up from the airport and don't have to take you back! It's coming soon!
