Sorry I went MIA for a couple of days there - the last day of the show was also pack up day and then we were just so busy, well... I was honestly just so worn out I couldn't even type. And it really wasn't from the CHA work... I got what I think is a cold, some nice person shared it with me at the show. And I have been coughing so much I just am worn out. It is better today - so I think I am on the down hill side of it, I hope!
It is so amazin to see the booth go up and look like this -
And then they announce that the show is closed and in a matter of hours... the booth is all boxed up and awaiting next years show.
We even had a little time at the end of the last day for you know what....
Then my real adventure began - my trip home. You see here in Texas I have seen it snow - real snow only three times. After last night 4 times. All the scheduled planes to San Antonio were canceled. So I had to get tough and brave and take a couple of flights to get myself back to Texas. (Very brave if you remember from last year how afraid I am to fly!!) But I did it and really wasn't nervous at all - I started with a teeny tiny plane from LA to San Jose - then ran 26 gates across the San Jose Airport to catch my next flight with Alaska Airlines to Austin. There my Hubby bravely traveled the ice and snow roads to pick me up. About a 1.5 to 2 hours trip normally... I landed at 11:20 - we were on the road at 11:40 we arrived at our gate on our farm at 4:30am. If I hadn't been so tired, I would have gotten out of the truck and kissed the gate... but I think that my lips may have stuck!! I have seen the movie the Christmas Story.. I KNOW IT DOES HAPPEN! And no one was triple dog daring me! It was a slow drive home, never over 30mph... and oh my the accidents we saw! Scary!
So I am home and glad to see my Hubby and all my babies. Chica has changed so much in the 10 days!! I couldn't believe it... we have a sick donkey that we are really worried about. I pray that she will make it through ok. We are not for sure what the cause is, and have given her all the meds we can. Now we just have too keep a close eye on her and wait. It isn't looking good - and I really am sick to my stomach about it. I just wish we knew what the problem was, Doc will come as soon as he can - another problem with being out in the country, old country vet and so many closed roads due to the weather. I'll keep you posted on her.
And as for my CHA photos - I'll download them all off my camera and start showing them off all this week. Took quite a few the last day - and some fun ones of the 4 of us during the week. So watch for my post this week to see them.
