Well we are now officially on the way towards a much needed vacation! The morning started early for me. I managed to turn on my side enough for my shoulder pain to wake me up. Once I was up there was no shutting off my brain, so 4:30am became my wake up time. This will make for a fun day if there is no sleep on the plane.
As if the grandparents were not doing enough, Lindsey’s mother is watching Baxter while we are gone. We dropped him off this morning. He always knows something is going down when he sees the luggage out. I don’t think he was expecting to see both of us leave. I am sure by now he has already jumped in the pool! So much for that bath he got before we left. He is in good hands though and I a sure that he will enjoy himself.
My loving mother brought us to the airport this morning which is a huge help as well. Just like going to movies I am very
anal practical when it comes to arriving on time. For making flights on time this “practical” nature runs in overdrive. My loving bride is the opposite of this. If she could have her way should would walk around the airport until the plane door is closing and pull some wicked Indy Anna Jones dive roll through the closing door. She is just cool like that.
The ride from Houston to Newark was uneventful, Lindsey and I watched movies and I got to enjoy the wonderful Tapas snack box. Surprisingly enough the tapas snack box really is the best of all the snack boxes. It has some fairly healthy items and who can turn down olives on a flight?
We arrived in Newark with the same weather that we left in Houston, rainy. I am not sure if this is just to get us into the “September in Ireland” spirit, but we could care less. If it just means that we sit around in cafés drinking coffee all day then we are good with that.
We are about to get on the flight to Dublin, but had to stop and get one more drink before sitting for 7 hours. Be safe everyone!
