Today is the day

In about 13 hours we have an appointment at the American Consulate in Amsterdam.
Also, around this time Jack's plane should be leaving Philadelphia and arrive around 8:30 Dutch time.

And I should be sleeping, because at 7 we have to get on the bus to go to Amsterdam to meet Jack at the airport.
But instead I am behind the pc, as usual I should say, and am talking to you guys.
It won't come as news to you when I say I am hyper, I normally am when Jack is coming over, don't like the flight, makes me nervous and I get busy with all kinds of stuff I suddenly decide needs cleaning.
This time I am just nervous about the flight, not about the cleaning, to big of a task this time.
And I will not go to bed before I see the plane left.
Right now I am nervous as hell that more will go wrong, don't they say everything comes in threes?
Well, as far as I can see we had two really bad ones this time.
Paquita needing an operation and than last Friday, the sewers in my street couldn't handle the rain. And the sewer water needed to go somewhere.
Turned out that somewhere was my kitchen sink.
days before Jack arrives, a few weeks before we move and a week before we expect around 35 guests, my living room, kitchen and dining room were flooded with the most thinkable icky water.

Instead of packing boxes to send to the US, I have been cleaning, instead of ordering drinks and food for the party, I was cleaning and on the phone with the insurance company...and the company I rent my house from... and the people in charge of the sewersystem.
The rest of the time I was praying for better weather for the time I have left here.

Talk about bad timing.
But, it took my mind of the interview, bit drastic, but it worked.

Anyway, in 12,5 hours we have an appointment.
Guess I better try to get some sleep.
According to the website, Jack's flight left on time.

I'll be ok, once I have him close and in my arms.
