My original plan for my “hashtag CountdowntoCapeTown” series was to post something on my blog every day until the day I leave for South Africa. Welp, here I am! Clearly that plan was THEE most epic of epic fails.
To tell you the truth, I’ve been super busy preparing for this trip. Shopping, cleaning (I HATE coming back to a dirty house — Mama Syndrome), and making sure all my assignments at work were fulfilled prior to my departure (because I WILL NOT be checking any emails. Period.). I hadn’t even been putting any real effort into doing my hair until last night (although my current state of Bantu knottage may be misleading to some).
The only thing on my mind — outside of the aforementioned — was getting to Africa after surviving this 17-hour flight (Lawd!). My plan was to not sleep at all last night (fail) and stay up until I fly from my layover in DC to Johannesburg (which is approximately 17 hours of flight time). I am determined to watch movies/read/drink complimentary cocktails until I fall asleep, then wake up, take a sleeping pill and pass right back out until I have arrived in the Motherland. Pray for me, y’all.
Of course, I’ll be taking and posting as many pics as many pics as my phone data will allow when I get there. In the meantime, keep my family and me lifted in prayer as we embark on this day-long journey. Deuces!
