Default Going to FL

OK....not that i've been posting a whole lot around here lately but I though i'd let (anybody who cares) know that i'm going to FL for 2 weeks!! My work opened up a new warehouse in Sarasota and are sending recruits to help get the place get going! I'm a little freaked out because....#1 I'm leaving my pregnant wife w/only a month left behind....#2 I've never rode on a plane before But all is good when it comes to $$...Hotel paid for...tickets paid for....spending $$ for food etc....rental van( for 4 of us ) And crazy OT.....can't wait to see the paychecks on this!! Totally need the $$ for baby stuff and to get the bonnie ready for winter!

I hear you on the OT!!
I'm working to get some registration green for my new ride as well.
Try to have some fun while your down there. I wouldn't meet up with Don while you're down there - he'll probably put you to work ... unpaid.

Have fun in the heat. WOuld love a paid trip to Florida. My boss goes away on business trips all the time, I get stuck holding down the fort.
Don't worry about the plane ride, I am sure you have heard that planes are way safer than cars.
Just hope the plane'* not white.
As far as the pregnant wife, is it your 1st. Usually the first ones are on time or late, hardly ever early.
