Who would have thought three weeks ago when I was lapping up the sun in Hawai'i that I 'd be needing to own something more than, as the locals call them, slippers!
Yes, T-Rex and I flew the friendly skies, yet once again, and he did pretty ok, thanks to the angel sitting next to me. No real blog worthy flying stories, other than the fact that they sent me back to the check in after going through security, because there was no infant in arms written on my boarding pass, and some how the hand written note by the check in agent sufficed...come on people...wish I had had a pen to just write, infant in arms...anyway we got on the plane, we flew, he cried, he slept, he laughed. I got to meet a really cool gal, and if we were staying in Austin, I'd bet we would be friends.
Am I being a little crazy? She was cool and we have kids the same age, well she doesn't have the older two crazy ones....anyway, thanks for being so kind to my little T-Rex and for talking with me.
So we landed. In snow! Lots and lots of snow. I think T-Rex just thought it was really white sand because he reached down with his little bare hands to play in it, only to shake them quickly to remove the stinking (no not stinking, stinGing) freezing stuff. Yeah not quite the white sands of Hawaii. Not that they really had white sand where we were.
Anyway we are here, waiting on the arrival of the other four. Poor Eric wonder how he is fairing on the drive? I wonder how many times TWO has yelled "me want you to hold me." She is kind of like that, after about ten minutes in the car she wants someone to hold her. Isn't the car seat enough?
Well today I get to go buy some shoes. Not sure my fat flat feet will fit in any, I mean I have been wearing flip-flops (slippers) for um six straight months....man not sure my toes want to be confined. I had several people comment about how they (my toes) must be freezing. Is there something wrong with wearing flip flops around in slushy parking lots in 40 degree weather? At least it was warm yesterday.
Want to hear something just crazy...think that is my word for the day CRAZY....all my clothes, every last one of them...well ok there are a few skirts in another suitcase on the way, but ALL of my clothes fit into one suitcase! Yep, fifty pounds worth of clothes, undies and all. I guess I could make a good pioneer, shove it all in a bag and take off..wait isn't that just what I did? Except no pushing and pulling of carts, well I did have to carry a carseat, two suitcases (brought some of Eric's clothes), and a stroller, out to the curb to be picked up, that was a lot of pushing and pulling.
Anyway, T-rex is sad, I have babbled enough. And well things look like they are settling down...now where is the job offer???
