08 January 2006

My brother and Mina have confirmed their wedding date as February 18th and I've got my plane ticket booked!

Nicholas, Lillian, and I will be flying out with my parents on Thursday the 16th and returning on Tuesday the 21st. Liam will be staying home partly to keep costs down and partly to take care of all the animals.

I'm so excited! My excitement has many factors including but not limited to the following:

1) I haven't travelled in an airplane since June of 2001 and I love to fly.

2) I haven't been to Vancouver since I was a kid.

3) I can finally visit my brother, and Mina, and the Jahnses.

4) I get to be out of the house for more than a few hours!!!

5) My brother is getting married to a wonderful woman.

6) Nicholas gets to go on an airplane, which he's done before but doesn't remember since he was only a baby at the time.

I'm kind of bummed that I'll be away from Liam for so many nights, especially since he'll be gone for 2 nights the weekend before when he and Nicholas go off to Beaver camp. I don't think we've ever spent more than one night at a time apart so this is going to be odd. I'll have to post a sign-up sheet for people to take shifts keeping him company throughout the weekend.

I can see a weekend full of sleeping in, reading and some Return to Castle Wolfenstein.

Oh, and crying myself to sleep.

Hmm. I see a games night in the future...

Sean Woods said...

Good lord!

Does this mean that...GASP...MADDEN is possible?

Liam J. said...

Could do...

Sean Woods said...

Solid.

< raises fist in the air >

Just to clarify here...you're all supposed to keep him entertained so he's not miserable, but not so entertained that he doesn't let me come back home!

I think 1 hour of Madden-esque happiness followed by 10 minutes of loneliness would be a good ratio.

domesticvixen said...

But a full-blown games night at the Leddy home is permissible?

KimProbable said...

Yeah, just make sure you kick him in the shins every hour.

Now, when you say Liam isn't going because of the expense...are you referring to the cost of a ticket for him, or the cost to the bride and groom to feed him?

And Sean, Liam, Kim, I have a solution. Sean and Liam can play all the Madden they want...but Sean will win every game on the most ridiculous and frustrating fluke play ever.

KimProbable said...

I like this plan. Cliff has the smarts.

Sean Woods said...

Cliff, I already win every game.


Although I would love to win on a double-reverse WR pass to Deion Sanders.

Maybe...a 99 yard interception return by Ted Washington? Or a Steve Bono-esque long TD run by, say...Kurt Warner.

And who the Hell gave ME the smarts? I'll only go and lose them...at the blackjack tables.

Liam J. said...

Unfortunately, smarts can only be used as currency in the way that they will allow you to earn your keep.

Unless you're saying that you will blackjack your way into indentured service.

Sean: I got last winsies.

JAMMAL SHANNON!
