UFF DA. little plane. big plane-long flight ( Little Kai was holding on to a bag and barfing as we walked off the plane….) -In Tokyo I was finger printed and photographed at immigration and when I went through security I had to remove my belt and shoes because I kept on beeping… the fact that I was a mom accompanied by three zombie children sleepwalking, one holding a barf bag and hurling didn’t get me any special treatment…on to the little plane, which we were the last to board because Kai was in the bathroom hurling again and Kazu was on the floor and I was barely able to rouse him…. The final flight, thank buddha for barf bags. There was a point where each kid was retching his/her guts out all AT THE SAME TIME. The two pretty flight attentants were busy handing out a cup of beverage and then selling duty free to all so they weren’t much help. The people sitting around us were pretty cool and tried to help out as much as was possible during the TURBULANCE and SEATBELT sign. All in all smooth travels … oh, we got out of Seattle late (one hour) because we had to taxi back to the gate for some hydrolic maintanence…but no complaints (besides the barf).
Oh, I just checked and I just celebrated a blog anniversary!!! I started this little experiment last year August 20 to see if I could keep up with my brother and his travels…. well he isn’t around much and it has turned in to a crafting blog….. I can not express in words how fabulous it has been getting in touch with the loyal 5 or so people that check in regularly and the 10 or so more who pop in every once in a while. Also to my family who are there all the time for me. THANK YOU ALL!!!!!
Oh, and today, my head is pounding, I have no oomph and, yah, feel kind of sick. Jet Lag sucks!!!! I think that tomorrow I will be back to normal and can start cleaning the house (dirty, yucky moldy) and unpacking all the wonderful things I bought in the great land of America. Will share photos when I get the gumption to download some…. until then………
