David and I will be leaving for Breckenridge (seen above) on Wednesday from New Orleans. I so look forward to getting out of town and seeing great friends (Jocie and Julia) and having a few nights in a nice hotel with cable tv (I'm not that hard to please really). However, I do feel a little nervous about the getting there and back part. Catching a plane always seems too complicated and hectic...especially compared to jumping in the car. There are so many things that are outside my control in catching planes. I always have this weird fear that I will miss the plane. Another thing I don't look forward to is the holiday traffic. I never had to fight it but I hear its awful. What I think will be fun will be seeing a snowy town at Christmas with all their decor. I am expecting beauty and wonder and lots of fun hot drinks. I guess all the good things will make up for sore muscles I'll have.
Our dog, Cora, will be staying with my parents through our trip and while we are at David's parents through the 27th. New Years will be spent with my family. It is strange to think that this will be the first Christmas that I am not with my parents. I have mixed feelings about it. My parents are planning on having a new year's eve party, but other than that I am sure it will be relaxing. We decided that since we weren't going to be home for the 25th that we would postpone Christmas till we got back. Hopefully, it will be like we never missed it.
