30,000 feet

I've always wanted to blog from the air. It's a little chilly in the plane, and bumpy at times, but pretty okay. We rode in a limo to the airport so that was nice and stress-free but it did smell like cat.

The in-flight movie is Man On A Ledge, edited for our entertainment I'm guessing because who ever says "son of a witch" and expects it to be taken seriously?

Jeff's luggage weighed more than mine. He even asked me if he could put his clothes in my suitcase and I was like um no. I packed thirteen outfits. I couldn't even fit a tiny tube of perfume in there. Had to have someone else put it in their Ziplock for me to get thru security. And still his bag was heavier.

I paid $7.95 for this wi-fi btw.

I am reading This Is How by Augusten Burroughs. So many good lines, I'm wishing I'd brought a highlighter.

I hope it's ok with Mr. Burroughs to share this excerpt...


We have absolutely no plans when we get to San Diego. All I know is that there will be sushi, other foods including more sushi and good times.

We've only brought up the kids about once every hour since we told them goodbye last night. I kind of miss them hard but am going to re-assign that energy to shopping for their souvenirs.

P.S. I got my toenails painted yesterday and chose red because while I'm normally more daring with my colors, that was becoming too normal and so I went with the unexpected, for me.

  7. I also got my toe nails painted red because that's unexpected for me. And I kinda like it. Because my toe nails are a bit on the stubby side they look like little cherries on the ends of my toes. I like.
    Enjoy your hubby-only time! :D

  8. Yay for red toes and San Diego and sushi and weekends with the hubby and no kids!! Soak it up like a sponge!

    Whenever I think about what to bring on a plane to occupy myself, I am always tempted to paint my nails. I never get enough time to give myself a manicure, it just seems so ideal (aside from the cramped seats and the bumps). Plus, I don't think the other passengers would appreciate...

  13. Good grief, I love your descriptions. I can seriously see your face in that limo. You make me laugh. And hooray to Mr. Burroughs. "You're not a bottle of vallium." My codependent self applauds you. I will resume cranky, hot and irritable:) Have an incredible journey little lady! XO

  15. Have fun in San Diego! It's a great city. If you get a chance, cross the bridge over to Coronado and go to the beach there.
