So that was one of the most horrible experiences of my life... I never want to fly again!! Oh wait... I have to get home.... and I will probably be coming back next year... OMG....
I have been hearing for months... quit worrying Michelle, it is smoother than riding in a car, simple no worries... Ok for me... VERY SMALL plane, packed like sardines in tiny seats not meant for skinny people much less "me". And why is it that the fattest people on the plane end up next to each other??? I don't think I moved my arms the entire flight. And then he was an "experienced" flyer and told me not to worry it would be smooth. And 15 minutes into the flight said... ok this is really bumpy... the middle hours calmed down a bit, then last 45 minutes he says... WOW this is getting to me, this is really bad turbulence! I have never been so scared and sick at the same time.
But I did keep "it all together" ... I didn't need to use that little bag... (love that huh Sis?) I landed and was thrilled to be on the ground. OH wait we landed in a thunderstorm... I now was in one of the largest airports in the country. Over an hour late and had to find my luggage and get to the other end to meet Heidi, Stuart and Jay Jay - who I am sure are all waiting for me now. Well I did it, had to take two buses, have you ever tried to STAND on a very crowded moving bus hold two very large suitcases for dear life while still sick, then realize that you missed your terminal, and had to ride all the way around again? But as I got off and gathered my strength... I see Stuart coming towards me... A friendly face. From then on things were ok. I wasn't alone.
Except that Hubby was worried sick about me, cuz I was so late in calling him. And when I finally got my phone to work he was having problems of his own... Lillie went into Labor!! We knew she was really close when he took me to the airport. First baby... out no problems... an hour later... she is still in labor and there is a problem. He called the neighbor and she came over and the baby was breech - evidently it was bad... but they saved the baby and Lillie. Then he talks to me and says it is twins!!! I call back an hour later and there was another problem... there was a third baby in there and it needed help too.. but I am happy to report that as of last night, all three and Mom were doing ok. I hope they are as well today.
So today is going to be a long hard day. The four of us will spend the day building all of the furniture for the booth. And get this... I am gonna have to drive in LA traffic.. I'll report how that goes .. :0)
So from California... getting ready for CHA... HUGS! OH WAIT ... Happy Birthday MOM!!! HUGS
