Please excuse me for not posting before. It took me a while to get to Internet. We still do not have a phone line or Internet ourselves and it might be another week or more until we do. So I am using this opportunity (a visit to computer able friends) to let everyone know what is happening since last time I posted.
We have packed frantically and thought we did pretty well, until on the morning of our flight we found out that we had been given wrong dimensions for our luggage. Every single piece was oversized!!!
This made for a lot of last minute stress, more luggage buying, frantic repacking and more frantic checking of the weight. Final count on the way to the airport was:
2 exhausted adults,
1 sleeping baby,
1 cranky toddler,
1 bossy teenager, who would have done the whole thing a lot more efficiently, if she had time.
3 excited kids, all of whom needed a bathroom “now”,
9 huge (i mean really huge) Rubbermaid tubs,
6 supersized duffel bags,
10 carry-ons (that became 9, after 1 walked off in the airport).
We barely made it in time on our flight.
The trip itself was pretty uneventful. Also it seemed to me, that most of my time was spend standing in line to the bathroom with various kids.
There is so much more to tell you, we are very happy and excited. I will try to write more tomorrow. And the wonderful thing is – I am knitting again! Knitting as much as I can, with pleasure I almost forgot. The weather changes very fast here and my girls need wrap. I am using some Noro Silk Garden to make a pretty but simple raglan shawl.
