Good News, Everyone!

I love Professor Farnsworth's enthusiasm when he proclaims, "Good News, Everyone!" and that's exactly how I feel after receiving some good news this week.

Ryan's birthday is in October, and since he insisted on moving 1700 miles away three years ago, I've been visiting him for a long weekend around his birthday. This year, John decided that work could muddle along without him, so we made plans for both of us to go. Plans to visit one son are good news, but the news got even better.

Justin has been busy trying to arrange for some time off and was finally granted five days. This is a really big deal if you work at a deer ranch and it is the beginning of hunting season, so I did my happy dance and started on the complex process of making travel arrangements so we could all be in the same place at (approximately) the same time. After looking at multiple flights, finding a hotel in San Antonio with a 24 hr. airport shuttle, trying to convince Justin that 4 am isn't really as early as he thinks and he can sleep on the plane, and renting a car in Denver, it looks like we will be together as a family for Ryan's birthday. We did visit Ryan in May, but haven't seen Justin since March, and I don't even want to think about how long it might be before we can all be together again. For now, I'm just going to cross my fingers that we can meet all the challenges that these intricate travel plans present and look forward to spending time with people that I dearly love.

I hope this weekend brings some sort of good news for everyone!
