Thwarted

You know how I was worried about traveling to a snowy town in the middle of winter? And y'all sent me reassuring advice about how airplane travel with a baby was no big deal and highly manageable? And how I felt much better about it and set to making preparations with a lighter heart?

Well, our flight got cancelled and the soonest we could get rebooked is a flight that leaves at 6am four days later, due to snow at our destination. Uh-huh.

In the meantime, we're consoling ourselves with the excellent chocolate that SwingDaddy gave me as an early Christmas present.

Maybe we'll even decorate our distinctly un-Christmasy house, starting with this plush wreath that's actually a dog toy, but is so cute and fuzzy I had to bring it home (darn you, Target dollar bin!).

Or at least decorate the child.

Ingenuity in the face of hardship is a true sign of character!

Oh no!!!!! Well, flying on Christmas is so much easier. No crowds! I did it for years growing up and flying to see my dad. Good luck!

Yep, flying on Christmas day. I wonder if the crowds will be as small as they were on Sept 11.

Oh man, that's terrible. Sorry to hear the added stress to your travel plans with the snow and delayed traveling.

I'm right there with you about the worrying. I do the same thing. It's a bad habit, but sometimes it does help, like when you actually DO need those little survival tablets of food. Or something.

Happy, safe travels, whenever it does finally happen!

I know this is not a comedy entry, but the end did make me laugh out loud. I hope your travels pick up and go well. And I wish you and yours a very happy Christmas!
