So I’m trying to fit all these things I want “to do before baby” into my summer. :-) I want to take all these trips and see people, but I think I’m going to have to pick and choose so I don’t wear myself out. We have gone camping once, and I am itching to go again before sleeping on a sleeping bag in a tent is no longer an option. :-) I hope to go a couple of times, but we’ll see.
We were able to go up to Asheville for Easter where my sister is and see her! She’s going to be doing a summer internship in a part of North Carolina that’s farther away from us, so we won’t really get to see her at all during the summer. I’m glad we were able to spend Easter with her. She wanted to take us to all these places, but unfortunately all the places she likes to go require hiking to get to. :-) I felt bad, but with no energy and needing to stay close to a bathroom and places to sit, hiking seemed out of the question. I think Amy forgave me, and we got to walk around a nearby creek and then we took her to Walmart because what else do college students without cars want to do when family comes to visit? :-)
Another upcoming trip is the Gerig reunion, in June! I’m excited about that. Then recently I decided I wanted to go up to New England to see Nichole, Becky, and Susan (and their respective babies). And my mother-in-law wants to throw me a baby shower. :-) But, I have to travel towards the beginning of June, and I’d rather do the Gerig reunion (the more stressful trip, namely because of the 10 hour drive) first.
So here is the option we’re playing around with right now. Us driving up to Indiana for the Gerig reunion. Then me flying from Indianapolis to New England, where I would spend several days with friends and go to Becky’s birthday party and to my baby shower, and then fly from New England back to Atlanta. Meanwhile, Paul will drive by himself after the Gerig reunion back to Atlanta and go to work, like a good husband. ;-)
Atlanta’s an expensive airport to fly in and out of. It’s actually cheaper for me to do it like that, than round trip from Atlanta. Also, it would save me from having to do the 10 hour Atlanta/Indiana drive twice! That appeals to me.
So. :-) Now is where YOU come in.
If I was to hang around Indy for a day or two, are there people who would like to entertain me? (Not that Indiana isn’t the most FUN place to be…!)
And, if I was to go to Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut for a week, would there be people there who would like to entertain me? :-)
