Okay... I think I'm getting excited now.

I made it to the airport. 

I cried when I said good-bye to Claire
she then turned to me and said, 

'Mom... can you start my movie.'

I guess she'll be JUST fine.

Of course started crying really hard when I said good-bye to Bob.

I think he was a bit embarrassed that the length of my hug time
exceeded the 'natural ending' point and moved onto 'awkward holding'.

he'll be just fine too. 

The girl at the ticket counter was super nice. She was excited for me
that I was bringing home a baby. So of course I showed her
Charlie's picture. She let our baggage go through,
even though it was 'over' weight.


We found out that the flight over and coming back is full. 

not so awesome.

You know else is not so awesome? 
Deciding to try and wear your hair 'curly' when in reality you 
only have a 'wave pattern' to your hair. And trying out a styling
product that you've never used before because you don't 
want to have to open the suitcases that you spent forever packing. 
Tack onto that the fact that you didn't put on any make-up because
of course that's all in the suitcase as well 
and you're already lugging around a 40lb bag.
(well, it feels like it's 40lbs)

I know. I'm looking pretty smokin' hot right now. 
(I'm already trying to channel my inner Korean by my photo poses)

And here's the teenager that I'm chaperoning. 

I know. Super cute. What evs.

Alright. I'm off to find a restroom. I'll probably have 'to go' at 
least 5 more times before our flight leaves. It's a by-product of my
fear/distain for airplane lavatories. I mentally tell myself that if I keep emptying
my bladder I won't have to use the one on the plane. 

(sorry if that was TMI)

and don't forget to check out Mary Leigh's Blog.
She just told me she blogged about traveling with me.
so now I have to make sure she didn't tell any lies.
