Lisa & Greg
I had such a great trip. It was full of good luck! I woke up Friday morning at 5 am. I got ready and headed to my Dad’s house. He was taking Greg and I to the airport. We get to Greg’s house and since my Dad had never met him I was kinda nervous. What my parents think is very important to me. We pull up and Greg is outside and my Dad says “Who is this guy?” I am like “Daddy that is Greg!” and he says “Well his pants are to short!” hehe “Daddy they are shorts, stop being stupid”. Then Greg gets in and the drive to the air port s fine. They talk and my Dad seems to approve. Here is where our good luck starts. We walk in and get our tickets and of course I am chosen to be searched, then we board the plane and we are told that everyone can sit where they would like and that there will only be like 33 passengers. That is great! Then our flight is all of 45 minutes long. We touch down at the Albany International Airport and compared to BWI it is so small. in less then ten minutes we are off the plane, have our luggage and are in the taxi on the way to pick up our U-Haul Truck in Colonie, New York. We get there and are greeted by more good news. They have upgraded our truck to a 14 foot one at no charge! Then we stop for some breakfast and head to the storage unit. Greg had all of his stuff from when he lived in New York in storage. A top floor storage unit. UGH! after 2 hours and about 20 trips up and down the steps we had the truck loaded. It wasn’t so horrible. At one point I did get upset. We were almost done loading up and had the heavy as lead headboard and as we were putting it into the truck there was a Love note from Greg’s Ex-girlfriend taped to the head board. I wasn’t sure if Greg had seen it or not and he went up to grab the last box and I climbed up into the truck and I was going to steal it and throw it away. Well, I started thinking and it would have just been mean to steal it. I mean it was his, part of his past and in no way was it my right to steal and I decided that if I had seen it he may have too so I left it. Later we talked about it and he said he didn’t see it and not to worry it along with the head board were going in the trash, that he loved me and that she was a thing of the past. Then we headed to our hotel, The Sheraton of Saratoga Springs. It was HUGE! We had decided on just getting a double room. Well, when we checked in it turned out again we had been upgraded, this time to a suite! AWESOME! It was the best room ever. It had 5 telephones, a bar complete with ice maker, microwave, and fridge, it had a Jacuzzi tub, two TV’s. It was great! We quickly changed into out swim suits and headed for the pool. We swam for hours. It was just the two of us in an Olympic sized pool. When we got out my legs felt like jelly after all the stairs and the swimming. We took showers and got ready for dinner. We went to The Wheatfields Restaurant. It was great! We met Lisanne and her husband Jeff there. I was so nervous and Greg kept telling me that she was probably just as nervous as I was! I seen them walking up the street and she started waving and all the nervousness I had left. It was like visiting an old friend! She is so sweet! I was scared and wondered if she would be in person like she was on the Internet and she was….exactally! She is one of the nicest people I now know! We all talked and had a great dinner! I took her a little gift and I read that she liked it! It was just so much fun. We all went to the police station near where that had parked and took lots of pictures. Lisanne also brought her soap stuff for the swap! She did it again. She always has great products! Greg and I walked back to our hotel and I was so tired I fell asleep by like 9 or so.

Saturday we woke up early and I took a long Jacuzzi bath! It was so great! I need a tub like that. The we went to the grocery store. Greg wanted some Ruby Red Squirt. We didn’t find any. Then we went to Denny’s for breakfast and the started our long long trip home. I slept from Albany to Binghamton. LOL I couldn’t hold my eyes open! I got some great pictures of the mountains coming home. We stopped to pee and stopped to get gas. Then we stopped at The Crackerbarrel Resturant. It was SO good. I had Fried Chicken with no bones and Greg had the biggest Bacon Cheese Burger I have ever seen. We then did some shopping in the country store. I got like 6 Christmas Tree Ornaments and a Tea Pot with a rooster on it for my Mom for Christmas. Then we started the final leg of our trip. It took about 3 hours from dinner to get home. Then I met Greg’s Mom, who was just so nice! I was scared, no one likes their son’s girl friend! LOL Then Greg took me to my Dad’s to pick up my car. My Dad showed us all of the stuff about our Christmas trip. My Dad is taking my sister and I either to Mexico or on a Western Caribbean Cruise. Didn’t I say before how great my parents are. LOL. I left my Dad’s and headed to my Mom’s. My favorite Aunt and Cousin are visiting. I am heading back there today. I got home last night and checked email and headed straight to bed! Talk about a busy weekend!
