Leaving On a Jet Plane!

Piglet and I are all packed, and we are ready to board our plane and fly to Arizona tomorrow. Match has to work, so I will be solo parenting this adventure. I’m nervous as all hell, and as Match said a few times tonight, downright hormonal, but hey, this is a big damn deal! I’m not much of a traveler, and I almost always travel by car, so this is all very unsettling for me. I hate that we can’t bring whatever we want, and that I’m limited to what we can carry. I’ve jam packed my bags with probably far more than I’ll need for this 5 day venture.

I think if any baby can handle it, it’s Mr. Piglet.That kid is so mellow, and I hope he stays that way for the flight.

I am going to miss the hell out of Match. We are heading to see my dad, my step mom, my aunt, and my grandparents. I’m hoping that I get some down time, with all those relatives to play pass the baby. I just wish Match could be there with us and get some time to relax. In other news, he’s finally completed backgrounds, so now we’re just waiting on pins and needles for the next step in the hiring process with his potential new job with our local police department. Fingers, toes and ankles crossed he gets it!

Piglet and I will be flying into San Diego, which is only 1.5 hours flight, but then we have a 2.5 hour car ride, ugh. It’s going to be a long day of traveling for this mama, but we’ve managed a trip to Oregon when he was just 3 months old, so I think we can do this. Of course we had Match’s help then. At least Piglet isn’t a newborn, and we’re old pros with the whole nursing thing. Hopefully this trip will be a fun little adventure for us! Wish us luck!!

    Have been thinking about you and little Piglet–I’m sure you’ll both do great! Please report back when you can–want to know how the little guy made out on the plane. That’s a long day of travel–for both of you.

    And keeping everything crossed for Match’s job!! EEEEEP!
