I don't keep the magazines because they are online and I just can't have a lot of things. I am a stacker and it's something I have to control. if I keep one thing, I will keep everything so I make myself get rid of everything
I do recycle them!
So I'm really ticked off. Dh called me last Thursday and asked if I wanted to go to Baltimore and DC and I asked why
He said they were sending him there for work and he was going to have to ride the train because he had to take this box with him and it's very fragile. They said they would pay for me to go but not the kids. We worked it all out and I kept bawling because I'd never left the kids for that long. (I've really only done a night and I called every hour) so I dropped the kids off Monday night and we were catching our train Tuesday morning at 3:45am. We get there at 2:45 and the guy tells us it's late. It got stuck at Donners pass and was 12 hours late, wouldn't leave until Tuesday afternoon. Then he sees our box and tells us it's way too big (dh told them it needed to be smaller but they said they'd try anyway) We came home and slept.
When we got up at 10:00 and called to check on the status of the train our tickets had been cancelled. I understand it was a half day late so the schedule wouldn't have worked out but I just didn't realize how much I wanted to go on this trip with dh. When we came home Tuesday night from picking up the kids I got really mad my oldest ds (he wanted his pj's on and was waking up his brother freaking out about it) I just flipped. I felt so bad. I didn't realize how much I wanted to go on this trip with dh. I always love doing things with the kids, but with this new baby coming I was thinking it would be a good thing for us because we would have another soon after and not be able to do anything together for another 5 years.
Anyway, I just wanted to share what's new with me and how I was just sad it didn't work out. We're hoping we can try again. They're going to drive this one there and dh will fly there Sunday-Tuesday to install it, but he's supposed to be designing a smaller box to take by train again.
