So tomorrow's the big day and I'm nervous as hell. More so because of my fear of flying then the fact that I'll be doing it alone with our 7 month old. I've packed and re-packed and I'm pretty sure I've remember everything 'major'. I mean I am flying to Houston (the 4 largest city in America, or it was last time I checked) so I'll be able to buy whatever I need if I need anything.
I've tried to make my leave as easy as possible for Mr. A. He works and goes to school so I've made a couple dinners in advance. He's only been away from Chloe for the 3 day's that I visited my Grandpa in OK so he's already hanging his head a little. Thankfully we live in the future - so there's Skype.
How can you beat daily face time for free? You can't.
Speaking of living in the future are any of you savvy on baby apps? Chloe is AMAZED with our phones and I know there are baby apps because I've seen the very weird stuffed animal iphone holders on the diaper isle.
I was hoping it might entertain her for 5 minutes of the hour and a half fight, so if you have any suggestions, I'm all ears.
Ah, Texas I've missed you. A little bit. Not the traffic or mosquitoes but damn if I'm not looking forward to your amazing TexMex. I'm also really looking forward to visiting with my family. Waking up at my folks, having coffee on the front porch with mom. Sweet hugs from my Aunt Lois. My littlest sisters sarcasm. Watching Chloe and her little cousin play together. We've even planned a little half day trip an hour north to meet with an old high school friend in the Bluebonnet fields for a photo-opp. It should be fun.
Plus there's the fact that I'll be able to make it to one of my best friends house warming parties (with homemade vino of course). I feel like an outlaw. And I'll be able to buy a fancy Texas koosie at the airport so I arrive back home with more class than I left with.
Ya'll come back now, ya here?
Sorry, I'm feeling a little nostalgic excuse me.
