Welcome Home pt 1

SO! I made it back in one piece! I'm so proud of me lol. im sure you wanna hear all about my trip! (if you dont, then TOO BAD! I'm gonna write about it anyway! Ha!)
where do i start...? Oh i know! Let's be all crazy and actually start at the beginning!

Tuesday afternoon, after much stress and lots of digging through different laundry containers, kitchen cabinets and toy boxes, i finally managed to drop off little Lee at my moms place. of course there was no parking on what must be the smallest street in this particular ghetto, uh, i mean neighborhood, so my hubby had to leave and come back several times while i unloaded all of the kids stuff. our goodbye was rather short, since i had to hurry to get back to the car and my son had absolutely no interest in paying attention to the person he spends EVERY DAY with. so no hugs and only a nonconsensual kiss lol.
i spent the rest of the night packing.

next day (wednesday the 22nd) i got up at... way too early, like 5 am i think, had enough time to brush my hair and teeth and get my tired butt in the car to be taken to the airport by my hubby. due to difficulties with the car, he oucldnt go very fast, so the trip that should have taken 45 minutes, took almost twice as long.
at the airport everything went smoothly, i was one of the first on the plane and had the great pleasure of being in the very first row, with noone beside me and my own little tv screen where i could choose what i wanted to watch. at first i burried myself in my copy of "the official autobiography of Charles Darwin" wich is quite the interesting read, considering it was written by none other than Mr Darwin himself, but after an hour or 2, the tv screen became to tempting and i put down my book in favor of "thecurious case of benjamin button" which was awesome, and then an episode of: supernatural, the big bang theory, how i met your mother and house.
eventually (10 hours and 35 minutes later) i landed in atlanta. quick as i am, i was the first one of the plane (being seated by the door helped too) and instead of heading straight for the front of the passport/customs line, i headed straight to the bathroom lol. i still managed to get in line before it got too long and got through without and issue. the customs agent asked me if i was from austria because of my haircolor, wich really threw me off (really? really bad red dye jobs are a sign of being austrian? despite the GERMAN passport? thats good to know)
i managed not to get lost in atlanta, wich according to some is qiute a feat....lol
so then i got to wait around for 2 hours to get on my plane to lexington/frankfort (i went from frankfurt to frankfort...interesting) wich i spent looking for a little gift to give to my friends kids, i bought them each a little panda bear for 5 bucks a piece, wich they ended up loving nearly as much as the dogs did.
the flight to leington was pretty short, less than an hour if i remember correctly, so i read a little more while listeing to music (shinedown "sound of madness") but mostly i was just looking out the window enjoying the view, trying to guess where i was.
arriving in lexington, i got my bag fairly qickly and went outside to wait for my friend to pick me up...and waited and waited. My first impression? DAMN this Kentucky place is COLD!!!
about 30 minutes later (an hour after she SHOULD have been there) madam decides to make an appearance. so i get my first ever hug from my (almost 5 year old) goddaughter Lorena and her (3 year old) sister Ella and i also get to meet little (15 month old) Valerie. all cute as can be. we make our way to Maria's minivan, wich isnt far away, thanks to the miniscule size of the airport. its an hours drive from lexington to the beautiful little town of somerset and I'm starving (airplane food = yuck) so we stop by McDonalds for some nuggets and a caramel iced coffee or some such thing. FINALLY we get to maria's house, walk in the door and get jumped by her 3 dogs. leading the pack is he tiny white poodle Henry who resembles a rat more than dog since maria had to start shaving him, closely followed by black lab mix duke (who weighs about 100 lbs) and dalmation mix Charlie, who is only slightly smaller than Duke. we spent the rest of the evening watching her kids dance in front of the tv and just talking about anything and everything. i spent the night on a giant airmatress in the living room.

and here i must leave you for tonight as it is 1 am and im still a bit jet lagged so i need to get to bed soon. i shall continue this story tomorrow (i shall try to spare you some of the boring details then, but i cant promise anything) sorry if there's alot of typos, im to lazy to correct them and the spellcheck aint working.
