Grounded

Our flight to Brazil is delayed (an estimated) 5 hours. Which means it will (supposedly) leave at 2 am bringing my layover time in Houston to 8 hours. So, instead of flying the 10 hours when Pedro is normally sleeping, I will only be traveling for 5 sleeping hours (if I'm lucky).

Not good.

Thank goodness my dad is with us. We are all at a hotel close to the airport. We just ordered Chinese food.

The worst thing is that because it is an "estimated" time delay, they could change it at a moments notice, so I can't even get a few hours of sleep because I have to keep checking the status.

Grrrrrr.

On the bright side (forcing myself here to be positive) first flight was really easy; Pedro slept about 1 hour and 15 minutes of the 2 hour flight. And, I have my dad here. And my toothbrush. And I have an Internet connection.

I'm liking the positive attitude during this frustrating delay...the internet connection is very important! :-) I'm glad your dad is with you.
