Off We Go!!

So, here we are!!! Dulles airport waiting for our Rome flight which, so far, appears to be on time. We had a hectic start to our day but things are much more relaxed now. We got up this morning at a reasonable time, 6:00 a.m.....had breakfast...did last minute packing. At about 7 I said to Dick "this is why I would prefer to take our own car...when we're ready, we just go". He had booked us a sedan to take us to the airport with a 7:30 a.m. pickup...we had a 10:19 flight so we wanted to be at the airport no later than 8:15. So we sat around, read the paper...7:15, 7:20, 7:25, 7:28, 7:30...still no car. At 7:35, Dick called the car company...5 minutes on kidding...5 minutes!!! Finally I couldn't stand it...sent him outside to pack up our car while I waiting for a representative. Short car explanation...ugh!!!!! Luckily, we were able to drive ourselves but so much drama so early...on a day that I was sooo looking forward to being relaxing :(

Now here we are sitting in the Red Carpet Club having my last glass of wine because I need Ambien to sleep on that overnight and Ambien....from experience I know that's a bad mix!!!

Next time you hear from me we'll be in Italy!!!!! Ciao :)
