Ha ha! The joke's on me!

Here I was thinking I'd be home, snug in my bed by 10 o'clock tonight. First, we missed our connection by literally 2 stinkin' minutes! We even got a rippin' ride in one of those speedy carts that raced us from customs to our gate super fast. And we still didn't make it.

We were offered stand-by with 6 seats spread out all over the plane. The gate agent was so incredibly sweet as to finnagle a couple of pairs of seats so my baby didn't need to be attended to by a stranger :P and my 6-year old could sit with a parent, too.

And here we sit on our stand-by flight, a faulty plane. We are now de-boarding to go get on a different plane. How awesome that they had an extra ;-)

We shall see how this next chapter turns out. Now it's time to see how my 'separated' kids are handling this!

Hope everyone is having a less eventful evening than I :)


  1. Oh dear...I do not envy you. I hope all goes well. Coming home is always the worst for me. The vacation is done and I just want it all to be OVER FAST. Safe travels to all of you!

  4. Safe travels XL...I am looking forward to this in a couple of weeks as I am being forced at gun-point to go to Florida to visit Disney World for 5 days with a 3, 5, 7 and 10 year olds.

  5. Oh Jeez! WHAT A PAIN! That bed is going to feel SO good when you finally get in it:)

  6. OMG...I'm just getting ready for my first solo-travel experience with Chloe...makes me nervous! Hope it all works out for you!!1
