And so very tired.
I spent 3.5 hours on a ridiculously small airplane with my ridiculously whiny children. Owen spilled his pop on his pants again but DON'T WORRY I came prepared this time. I cleaned him off and handed him new pants to change into. Which he did right in front of me much to the chagrin of the grumpy people next to us. Olivia slept part of the time because I nursed her... which also ticked off the grumpy old people next to us and fascinated the young girl in the seat up one row who felt compelled to stare at me for a good portion of the time.
We sat directly in front of the engines and the noise was so overwhelming that we couldn't even talk to each other. And we could barely hear the TV with headphones. Owen's TV didn't work of course. And we were sitting in an aisle with NO window. Doug and Aiden were sitting accross the aisle behind us. Olivia and Owen both wanted to be with them because they had a window.
Air Canada basically sucks. It was super expensive and they didn't even give us cookies. Just one small cup of beverage on the whole flight. Although we could have purchased small, unpleasant looking sandwiches for SIX dollars each. Sheesh. And now that the airport won't let you take liquids through security we were basically thirsty for three hours.
I had a RAGING headache and the airplane was hot and stuffy and loud and crowded... it was the first time I actually came close to being air sick.
I shall never fly Air Canada again if I can help it. West Jet for me.
And then we had to drive the almost three hours home. Which we survive miraculously well. We got home before supper time even! Then we had to unpack and all that fun stuff. By the time I fell into bed I seriously debated ever getting up again.
Sadly my children did not like my new "sleep forever" plan... so here I am trying to adjust to life at home again.
I'm glad to be back.
When it rains, it’s all kinds of drama
