Tonight Gretchen and I are flying off to Dublin, Ireland to attend a wedding on Saturday. Son Jeff and his girlfriend Christine are joining us on the flight over. We will then drive from Dublin to Shannon tomorrow to pick up daughter Holly and her boyfriend Ryan, who will be coming in from San Francisco.
The bride is one of Holly's childhood friends. The wedding will be in a quaint resort town called Coolbawn Quay, in Co. Tipperary, not far from where my paternal ancestors lived. All of us will get in some touring of Ireland both before and after the wedding. From there, Jeff and Christine are headed off to Turkey, while the rest of us go on to Barcelona, Spain for a few days before returning home on May 4. We're all really excited about this trip!
This is our first major trip since Gretchen's accident, so we will have to take it a bit easy. Despite my MM and her head injury, we are both fortunate to be able to travel and see the world. We want to get as much of this in as we can while we are still able.
Needless to say, I won't updating this blog until I get back. My next
visit to the Farber is on Monday, May 5, so I should have some updated
news to report then.
Our house is going back on the market today. We have hired a "stager" to change things around to make the house "pop". This will all occur while we are away, so the house will have a new look when we get back home. We're glad to have the house shown in our absence. It's a real pain to have to keep everything in show condition while trying to live a normal life. Hopefully, we'll get some nibbles while we are traveling.
