I know it's a sign of a wonderful week to come for my darlings, but I basically had to force them to give me real hugs and kisses goodbye this morning. We'd gone to Target to get some treats because they have done such an amazing job with their swimming lessons and they were totally wrapped up in Legos and a Captain Hook boat. So really, I suppose I should count my blessings for this peaceful, happy send-off, but I cried a bit as their sweet little legs raced them away and back to play. I'm of the dreaded prop plane now and will be glad to get to Houston soon, jump off and get an enormous coffee.As an aside, y'all should hear this flight attendant's voice. Soo sing-songy and fake. It's like a roller coaster bedecked with knives.
