Christmas Trip Update

I know, you’ve all been on the edges of your respective seats around this little blue and green planet for the last couple of days, wondering at all hours ‘Has Talea made a decision yet? About Christmas? And her psycho hose beast mom that comes with it?’

Well folks. I have.

Get ready. Get comfortable, put down your drink, chew whatever you’re snacking on. Do that little seat wiggle when you’re intending on leaning on for a really good, shocking piece of news. Here it comes:

Wait. First, I want to thank you all for your input. Seriously. Though in the end, since the responses were all over the place, you all served only to confuse me more, I still enjoyed reading your thoughts.


I’m going home. With a twist. I had my ticket booked for the 14th, but I cancelled it and got a different flight for the 19th.

So now I’m only spending one week with crazy maternal unit, and I have a credit waiting for another flight that I decide to take in the next year, on any regularly scheduled flight that WestJet may decide to offer me. The man on the phone was very polite.

SO, this means that you will be DELIGHTED with my ‘live from Saskatchewan’ blogs and updates about my holly jolly Christmas experience.

That’s all I’ll bore you with on this topic. Goodbye now!

    I’m so glad you’ve made a decision! Just a week with her wont be as bad as two, and still get to see family. You’ll come back with a million prairie stories I already can’t wait to hear!! We’ll have a fun Christmasy send off for you at the Ladies Who Lunch on the 15th! 😀

    I shall certainly have a million stories, don’t doubt that! The only problem is the flight. I need to find some drugs for that….hehe.

  2. This is a great idea. And I’m taking all the credit because I believe it was the Leaky Brain that suggested you go home but for a shorter time. And if I didn’t say that, you just read between the lines of my comment and there it is.

    You’re gonna have a great christmas. Drink a lot of egg nog spiked with tequilla. Or maybe your mom should do that. Either way, I am looking forward to the stories you have when you get back.

    All hail Leaky Brain! And eggnog spiked with tequila? Aren’t you supposed to mix it with rum? Every year I buy eggnog and think, “mmmmm, eggnog looks so good!” and then every year I remember that I hate it. But perhaps I was just missing the tequila!
    Maybe I’ll spike my mom’s coffee with tequila. Another great plan from you, Andrea! You’re a fountain of ideas!

  3. Yay, glad you made a decision. And it sounds like a good one. A shorter visit may do ya some good, plus you get to see your Granny.

    Well, shorter with my mom is still with my mom and that won’t do me good. But it WILL do me good to get to the prairies and all the traditions I associate with chrismtas. And my Grandma!!!!!

  4. I’ll get you some glitter.

    Love it. Someone’s gotta knit the toys, too.

  5. yay im glad you decided. a short time is better than no time too 🙂

    yeah, I’m not good at decisions, but I’m going one last time before I start my own traditions, cuz I don’t want my last time to be a time that I didn’t realize was my last time. Did that make sense?? 🙂

  6. well, even though I had no input, because i SUCK, i’m glad it all worked out for you !!
