Oh my. What a busy day. My head is just spinning right now because I had so much to do today and it's 9:00PM and I'm finally finishing up... sort of. We have a flight leaving for San Fran tomorrow morning at 7:00 and I'm not done packing. This is completely different than last weekend when I had the lists made and was all packed with plenty of time to spare... Oh well. My running stuff and heart rate monitor are packed so the important stuff is taken care of.
I guess we thought that we didn't truly test Moana's ability to travel with that piddly 40 minute flight to the Big Island last weekend... so we'll get to feel the full extent of what it's like to travel with a toddler this weekend... 5+ hours on a plane. Lord help us. I keep thinking about that post Angela wrote about how Zach kept repeating, "Airplane. All done." I can picture Moana doing the same thing after the first hour. And I'll be like, "Don't worry sweetie. Only 4 more hours to go!" Argh. Is 7:00AM too early to start drinking wine? Because that *really* helped me last time we crossed the Pacific with Moana.
On my list of things to do today was to go to Target and get a couple new and interesting toys for her. Have Etch-A-Sketch. Will travel. We also have a portable DVD player and a couple of Elmo videos, so that should kill an hour at least.
On tap this weekend is a family reunion with Scott's family. Should be fun since Moana hasn't met any of her cousins on that side (and she's got one almost exactly her age!) and she hasn't seen her grandparents since she was 2 months old. I ended up buying a new Flip video camera today too because we can't possibly see the family once a year and not get it documented on film somehow.
Anyway, tomorrow will be a challenging day I'm sure.... hopefully I won't have to blog any horror stories next week.
