We had a great time in Sacramento. Well, Minna is still having fun there with the girls. They are all patiently waiting for a baby to come.
Waiting after the due date is the worst. I know because we waited nine days past Hannah's due date for her to be born.
My parents came Friday night and Saturday. I love when my girls get to see their grandparents. Jane even recognized them so it hasn't been that long since they've seen them.
My red-eye left at 12:15am Monday morning. I got there and was hoping there would be enough seats to actually lay down. No such luck. Apparently 26 people had missed the previous once-a-day flight because of the time change. They were all trying to get on my flight. Since I was flying stand-by, this is bad news for me. I did make it on, and actually slept ok.
I've almost got the flying-sleeping thing down pat. Here is what helps me.
- I put something under my feet, the higher the better. I had my bag down there.
- I put my belt around my knees because when they flop around when I start to doze. I was in the middle seat and my neighbors both looked at me a little funny when I did this.
- On JetBlue they give out earplugs. They help tremendously, to drown out the PAs.
- I'm still working out the head bobbing thing. Neck pillows don't work for me. Once when I was in the very last row I took my long sleeve t-shirt and tied my head to the seat. That kept my head from bobbing all over. I think people really got a kick out of it on the way to the bathroom.
