So yes, we finally made it to Hungary!!! The journey was exhausting. Maisie did quite amazing if I do say so myself! Of course I did spill both a Sprite and a water everywhere as soon as we got on our long flight from Chicago to London, but that was really the only drama on the plane! Maisie slept great for the first three hours of the flight. Then yes, with a little help from Benadryl, she slept even longer!!! She is doing a great job getting on schedule!!! I am actually sitting next to her right now as she naps. She is such a little trooper!
The biggest drama during our trip was when we finally arrived in London. (By the way, why does the English accent make everyone look and sound way cuter and smarter than maybe they really are?!!?) Anyways, we got to London and found that the people in Chicago did not put our gate checked stroller onto the plane!! NOOOOO!!!! Then with all that drama going on, the lady helping us find where the stroller was realized that the person who booked Maisie’s paper ticket (have to have a paper ticket for a baby when traveling internationally) didn’t book it all the way through to Vienna. Just to London. So we had to pay something like 75 pounds (or 150 dollars) to get it! I CRIED! Right there at the desk in London! The people were so nice to me and I apologized and they told me not to. It was nice. So we had lots of drama with flying American Airlines and will try not to do that again unless we have to. They were not so helpful or competent in their jobs. Sorry, but true!!!
The conference is going great. I can tell I am growing up a bit because I actually could care less if I miss out on something. I find it a relief to be able to just sit with Maisie in the room while she naps. We have an important meeting tonight that I hope will give us a bit more direction in life! If that is even possible! 🙂
Here are some pics from our travel drama!
For the first times ever, Justin would hold Maisie during takeoff. Almost each time I think! They would flap their “wings” as the plane took off and be so proud of themselves that they made the airplane fly. It was pretty cute.
This is a dumb picture, but the only one with all of us in it. Oops, Maisie isn’t even in it all the way!
Maisie diid such a great job entertaining herself! We had so many layovers and each time, she was happy to get back on the plane!
We are adjusting from the time change and jet lag and all that good stuff. Our stroller arrived last night (YAY!!!!). I will give an update about the conference later!!!! My computer is going to die and I don’t know where my European charger thing is!
