Last week I spent four days in Ohio and two days traveling! I spent about 12 hours in the air, 9 hours at an airport, and not nearly enough hours sleeping. I changed time zones by three hours on Monday and then again on Friday. I went from 75 degrees to 45 degrees and then back to 70 again. Yesterday, I woke up with a cold! Surprise, surprise! My poor body is thoroughly confused!
On the way there, my second plane was delayed. Then after we boarded and taxied onto the runway, the pilot took us back to the gate and we had to get off of the plane because the number 2 engine wasn't working! Let me tell you, it was not easy getting back onto that plane after they said it was "fixed!" I'm usually not a nervous flier but I'd be lying if I didn't say I was tempted to look for a bus ticket back home! I did make it there and back safely, but I don't know if flying will be quite so comfortable for me next time!
It seems to be working now . . . so far so good! . . . Goodbye LA
My time in Ohio was very full! I'm always grateful for the time with family that I rarely get to see. I stayed with my cousin who has been one of my closest friends since we were little girls. We were pregnant with our firsts together and they are only 5 weeks apart, so we always have plenty of mommy talking to do! She also has an adorable four year old who is a cute little stinker! Tiff (my cousin) spoiled me with a pedicure and other fun adventures while I was there.
I also visited with two of my grandparents, two aunts and two more cousins (one of whom I hadn't seen for 5 years and one who I hadn't seen for 9!)
My trip was an adventure, more so than intended, but at least I didn't get the stomach flu like last year!
It's always hard to say goodbye, but I'm glad to be back with my boys! :)
