    Pegmeister’s TR 11/25 - 12/06 EXCITED

    Our journey begins the day before we fly out to Aruba as it’s always our most hectic day.

    This morning we dropped Maddy, our yellow lab, at her pet resort. We were sweating it as she had a cough last month and was on antibiotics for 2 weeks. While clear of a cough for the last 3 weeks she still huffs if super excited as she often is. I was so afraid they wouldn't Let her stay!!!!! All went well and she is settled in I have been checking in on her often via their webcam.

    So, all relaxed we decided to stop for breakfast at a local spot, even got a parking spot right in front which is unheard of, perfect!! Head home with plenty of time to throw stuff in the suitcases and head to Logan Express.

    It really was a perfect start; but then my beloved husband decided an hour before we’re leaving to trim a toenail. He nicked himself, there was blood everywhere and I mean everywhere. My potty mouth was in full gear and I had no sympathy because I knew I had to clean it up. I know poor guy!!! It took me an hour to get the bleed to stop and then bandaged it up. The cut was teeny tiny and all is good. I kind of apologized but geez!!!!

    We’re now at the Hilton Logan Airport and all settled in. Flight out at 8:00 am. Please, please, please let the vacation begin!!!!

    Would you believe that in 15+ Trips Tom has gone in the water just once and that’s when we went snorkeling off the Black Pearl!

    you will have to bring him a bucketful so that he can soak his toe.

    Peg - laughing because I did Ray's toes (all of them) last night...sorry everyone TMI! I wish men would get their toes done by professionals and not us wives (lol)

    Glad Maddy is feeling better, you know she will have a great time at her resort just like you and Tom at yours

    Safe travels, you have great weather tomorrow leaving Boston, even better weather when you touch down

    Interesting morning at the airport. Fortunate that they didn’t make us go to a kiosk and we got precheck! It’s busy so that saved us a bit. We made it through security fairly quick. Some confusion with TSA when they decided I should move to the metal detector line instead of the scanner. I had my sandals on and he made me go back and take them off. Of course I had out my boarding pass back in my bag so it was on the conveyor belt and I couldn’t show that I had precheck. So slight delay. Tom got to keep his shoes on so it made no sense. We have a long walk to the gate with no food or coffee options close so I found a spot to grab a coffee and went to pay cash and guess what they don’t take cash. Went to grab my card and the lady in back of me told the guy to put it on her card!! So nice. Finally settled and starting to relax when they announced our gate had changed! Tom grumbled all the way over.

    Okay, I know all boring stuff but we’ll be in Aruba soon and I’ll do my best to be more interesting. The
