So, we leave for Costa Rica a week from tomorrow. We’ll BE IN Costa Rica a week from tomorrow!! But my brain can’t stop worrying about all the things that might go wrong!! Isn’t that ridiculous? We’re going to this amazing place and I’m worried that we’re going to get lost, if we actually have a rental car, and we have hotel reservations… etc. Why wouldn’t we? That’s a great question! I have no idea… but I automatically think the worst… one of the many reasons I’m a work in progress… always.
I think it’s mostly because this is the first time Barry’s traveled internationally, and the first time I’ve traveled internationally on my (our) own. I’ve always been with a chaperone or a parent or someone from that place… never on my own – meant to be the adult. (What?! Am I one of THOSE?!) It’s a little scary, but I’m totally looking forward to it! :)
I think I’m much more confidant in the whole rental car thing too… they are going to make sure we get a taxi to the hotel (and were honest about it being our expense so there's no surprise or wrong assumptions when we get there) and then deliver the car to the hotel in the morning, at no additional cost. I actually feel much better about that then having to navigate ourselves to the hotel in the dark!
Oh man! :D
***Also - Happy Birthday Brudder!!! I told someone I felt old because you were turning 29 - they said, "wait till you have kids that are that old!"... oh boy! Hope the day brings you all that you want, you deserve lots! :)
