In almost 48 hours, I will be flying off to Paris. I really can't wait and am already packed up and ready to go. I do have a few last minute things to pack like my toothbrush, hair brush, etc.
Jody's husband Patrick called me tonight to give me a little advice on how to stay safe and to keep from getting pickpocketed. He gave me some ideas of things I can do and also what to watch for. I really appreciate the help. I have such a naive, innocent look about me that I'm sure I would be a prime target, but I will pray for God's protection and safety, and I'm sure I will be fine.
I have a few concerns about traveling overseas alone. First of all is missing my husband and children, especially baby Heidi. I hope I'm not traumatizing her little baby psyche by having her mommy "disappear" for a full week. I'm also concerned about getting through the airport with my luggage and no help. We'll see how that goes. I'm excited that I am able to take a bunch of American stuff for Jody and her family, but I am worried about managing all of it until I can get it to her.
that's all for now...
