yes, we made it!

We are happy to report that we made it home at 7:30pm last night!!!
We were lucky enough to have a very full flight and right behind us was a VERY young couple that decided to try to get drunk before flying. The young woman NEVER stopped talking!! Luckily Gerri slept for part of the flight :)

This same woman talked to everyone that went by or said anything in her vicinity. Many times her response was not very nice.
I had to get up and carry Gerri to the bathroom and on our return this young lady said (very loudly) "omg! what is wrong with your child!" I promptly punched her out smiled and said "My daughter has a joint disease called arthrogryposis and we are working on her feet" The crass young lady then said (very loudly) "oh I know how that is, I have arthritis in both my knees" Since there was absolutely NO reasoning with her I just smiled and said "wow that is too bad" and under my breath I said MUCH more but continued to smile and turn my back to her. I felt really bad for their 11 month old that they had :(
We ate our lunch for dinner and put our Ipods on with our earphones!!
When we pulled up to the house Gerri was SO excited to see Danny and Victoria she was squealing!!
Even though we didn't get home till 7:30, all 3 kids were sound asleep by 8:00 and slept till 7:00 am!! :)
Now I just need to get rid of this darn cold, my ears are still blocked now.

This next week is spring break so we need to find some cool things to do, maybe the zoo, a couple of museums, ride the train in St Augustine, we shall see. It will be nice to not travel next week!

I'm sorry you've had such a rough few days Nancy. I feel sorry the the little one that has no choice but to have drunk parents. Very sad.
Your home coming sounded like ours. There's no place like home :)
Get better soon

Sorry for the rude people on your flight. We have only just begun with the stares and rudeness. Let me know if you have any advice for dealing with it. ;)
