Trip Home & Back to the Grind...

Yesterday was a long day.  3am wake up call then the driver showed up at 4am to take us to the airport.  We got to the airport, got checked in.  I was given a wheelchair and we were off to the gate to wait for our plane to take off.  Shortly after 6am we were in the air headed for BWI in Baltimore MD.  We were lucky that the people around us liked kids and were willing to deal with our little social butterflies.  We arrived 25 minutes early.  We got shuttled over to our next gate where we waited for the plane to come in.  Tristin struck up a conversation with a man named Landon.  Landon taught him a new game called Fruit Ninja.  They had a great time as we waited to board the plane to Cleveland.  We thanked him for being so kind to the kids and we were off to the plane.

We landed in Cleveland about an hour later and it was off to pick up the luggage.  Tristin & Tyler went with Chad to pick up the truck while I stayed behind with the bags.  On the way home I fell asleep.  Once we got home we all took an extended nap, waking up around seven pm to have an indulgent dinner from Bruno Brothers Pizza.  Then it was off to bed again.

This would be the second part of the blog, catching you up on todays events.
Wednesday, November 16, 2011.  
I woke up this morning to Tristin complaining that he was sick.  I decided that I didn't want to battle with him, Tyler and the crutches this morning so I gave him a pass on school.  He instead spent the day helping to unpack and put away the things we brought back from our trip. I spent the day keeping my leg elevated and iced while catching up on all of my blogs.  At Five O'clock a knock came at the front door.  I was pleasantly surprised to get a beautiful arrangement of flowers from my friend Lisa in Virginia.  It was a great present and welcome home gift.
  I was told to imagine that they are a really deep pink rose.  I think they are perfect.  So tonight as I get ready for bed I have to say Thank you for believing in me and for cheering me on every step of the way.  Next year when I do my walks I will try to pre write my blogs so I don't have to play catch up & leave you hanging in the balance.  Big Hugs & Lots of Love going out tonight... XoXo
