Do you remember THIS post? Well, the time is upon us. My poster is done. The paper is submitted, the copyright permission is awaiting an official envelope. (I’ve always wanted to use an official envelope. The ones that say "$300 fine for using this for non-government business")
Dr. Jay leaves on Sunday for Pasadena. He kindly opted out of softball this week so he could spend time with the girls before leaving. On Tuesday, at 8:30am, a cab is coming to take the girls and I to the airport. Then we go to Orlando.
I have purchased a computer cart to attach Luna’s car seat to. If I need, I will gate check the cart. I have decided to take the heavy, kick ass Britax car seat because it has LATCH and I can LATCH it to the cart! (Hey, I am a rocket scientist). I HOPE that Luna wants to ride in this cool contraption. I will try to get a photo of it.
So a recap, I will have 2 kids, under 2 with me. A Car seat. My backpack (with snacks and diapers and wipes, a change of pants for Soleil if she has an accident, DVD player + DVDs up the wazoo), Soleil’s backpack, Luna’s backpack? A rolling cart to toss everything on. My sanity? I don’t know.
I went on eBay and bought a greymarket version of Beauty and the Beast for this trip. Great. Now I have three copies. 2 on VHS and one on DVD. But HEY, we can watch the DVD with Thai, Chinese or one other subtitles that I have never heard of before!
I must be fucking insane to do this. My parents will meet us after security in Orlando. I have a rental car. We will get there about 3 hours before we can check in. Dr. Jay doesn’t get to Florida until Wednesday night.
I have to be at the meeting all day Thursday and I have a 3 minute presentation on Friday.
I am insane. I am legally insane. I don’t think I can drink on the plane, do you?
