I know that it has been awhile since I’ve posted something. I’ve been pretty busy both professionally and personally. Other than little bouts of bitching here and there, I must say that I’ve been doing pretty good overall. I don’t like it when the day drags on so keeping busy is good.
Thanks to the MIL, we were able to go to Augusta, GA over Memorial Day weekend. It was the first time that the Little One flew. I must say that she did pretty well considering she had to sit on my lap the whole time. We tried to play and tucker her out during the layovers... however; the layovers were very short so it didn’t seem to help much. We discovered that we enjoyed the biscotti cookies that Delta offered as a snack. (Or, we were just famished because of the weird meal schedule. Not sure.) You should have seen the three of munching on cookies and getting crumbs everywhere. We only received one “stink eye” while we were traveling. It was our last flight on the return home. The Little One was hot (air-condition didn’t work properly) and very tired. So, she did cry a little at the beginning of the flight. She was out cold before the flight took off so her crying time wasn’t long. However, it was long enough for a nearby male passenger to give us “the look”. *sighs* Oh well. He can suck it.
We all enjoyed our time in Georgia. We got to see the MIL’s new house, attend (or rather ran) TT’s baby shower, and Little One won a $25 gift certificate to Toys R Us! How? We went to Famous Dave’s for dinner on our last night down there. It just happened to be kids’ night at the restaurant. Her name was entered into a drawing. *poof* She won! It was probably a good thing too. It wasn’t the best service at the restaurant that evening. MIL made sure that she bought some lottery tickets after leaving the restaurant in hopes that the Little One’s luck rubbed off. We haven’t heard anything so I am thinking it didn’t. Oh well!
This trip gives me hope that Little One will do well on future trips. If the “Employment Fairy” is generous by giving the Hubby a job, we are hoping to go back down to Augusta for Christmas. I’ll have a new nephew to play with by then!
Again, thanks to a friend’s generosity, we are off to Vermont this weekend for a yearly friend get-together. That’s within driving distance so it shouldn’t be any big thing. We are looking forward to seeing everyone!
