I’m writing this post just under 8 hours before I get in a cab with my in-laws, Ravi, Elanor, B and 5 suitcases to head to the airport. We’re flying to Phuket at 8:30am and should get there at 9:45am local time (as they’re an hour behind us, a two hour flight is accomplished in one hour of clock time).
Since it is “only” a two hour flight and as we are paying for B’s airfare and room, we decided that E would be fine in lap…anyone want to start a betting pool on how long it will take me to regret that decision? One the plus side, it is a two hour flight, which means 2 episodes of Sesame Street on the iPod…there is a good chance she’ll just sit and watch happily. On the other hand, this could end up being two hours of gritting my teeth as she clings to me like a burr. Or, on the other plus side, if she kicks the seat in front of her, at least it’s just her grandparent.
Regardless, I’ll be away until Saturday the 14th–I will try to post here, but am unsure how much I’ll be able to. I have scheduled posts for Mon-Wed over at Expat Bostonians, so you will at least have reading material there for a few days 🙂
