Missed it by that much…

…She was actually on the plane. Traci and Andrew were given 1 seat to share (he is under 2 years old) as there was a no-show for the ORD to PIT 4:30 flight. She was about to sit down when the guy showed up. she had to get off the plane. Can you believe it? My poor wife and my trooper of a son have been dealing with a really busy airline Thursday. Why on earth would all these flights be full on a Thursday?

She came off the plane and went straight in line for the 7pm flight, and did get 2 seats booked on this one. YAY. So… we left the house at 5:30 this morning and she will arrive in PIT at 6:30pm. That makes it a 13 hour trip instead of a 6 hour trip… yeesh. and she still has to go an hour south to her parents place.

She did good though. She stayed calm, with a few minor breakdowns. The biggest problem was lugging the car seat around. With the carry-on bag (all Andrews gear), the Car seat AND trying to carry/ drag Andrew from place to place, she is pretty wore out. She is in much better spirits now that she has a ticket in hand tho.

I feel better knowing she is feeling better. Pretty helpless from here, that is for sure. It was a little over 12 years ago I was on my way down to marry her and got stopped in Vancouver Airport for 2 days, 3 days before the wedding. Were we ever freaking then. Oh well, add it up and call it an experience to draw from in the future.

The only problem is that she had to fly back on Tuesday. I will hope for the best for her, she does not deserve this extra stress. The only reason she is going down there is so Her dad can see Andrew again.

On top of it all, we have no idea if her baggage is going to make it…LOL.
