Oh, thank goodness! That you were on the right plane. My faith in homeland security has been restored.

I am so sorry you had a migraine though! But glad you had your meds with you. You look great in your picture - not at all like you're strung out on codeine!

Too funny but I think you just gave me a reason not to fly Southwest. At least that is who I think you were flying with.

I was most relieved to find we were where we were supposed to be! Thanks about the photo but I think it looks ick! Maybe because I know!

Ya, it was Southwest. Actually, other then that little hiccup, we really liked them. There was way more leg room then Air Canada and they were right on time with all our flights. After I bought our tickets the price came down and all I had to do was call them and they refunded the difference! Woohoo! All things considered, I'd fly with them again in a heartbeat. I'd just ask where the plane was going before I got on!

I remember reading about your migraine Sooze! So, its your fault then, eh?!

On a plane is not a fun place to get one, that's for sure. I think someone else had one too. I think it may have been Me(l) the 1000th Happy Haunt. Might be wrong though.

Hmmmm....

Oh yes, I left you all freaking out about my little "situation"!



There I am sitting on a plane that is going somewhere I don't want to go flipping right out! The kids were looking at me trying to decide whether they should pretend they don't know me or if they should start to cry. Either one would have been fine at that moment!

We frantically pressed the "call" buttons above our heads. Hoping that if all 4 of us pushed them the flight attendent would come faster.....

"Um, excuse me but we are on the wrong plane!"

"Where are you trying to get to?"

"Albequerque - which is not the same place as Salt Lake City!"

I thought I through in that little geography lesson for her!





Then it happened and now I feel like a fool......







"This plane is going to Salt Lake City en route to Albequerque."

"Oh." !
omg! that's hillarious! I'm sure it wasn't to you at the time but at least you were in fact on the RIGHT plane! I'm glad to finally know the outcome. It was killing me.

It's not nice to give a poor Disney-bound momma a heart attack like that!

So all is well and good in our world once again except for the little fact that I still have to spend the day on an airplane. And now I have to go up and down not twice but three times!!!!

Have I mentioned I don't like flying? !
no, not good to give a disney bound mama who has already had a bad night the night before a heart attack.

yes, you mentioned that a time or two. that stinks that you have to land and take off one more time than expected.

We meandered our way over to the end of the runway and then suddenly it was "that" time and the plane started rocketing off down the runway. I guess I had yet another paniced look to me because Belle reached across the isle and grabbed my hand and told me it was going to be okay. !
aww that's sweet that belle was looking out for you

Don't make a bigger fool of yourself then you already have.

Then suddenly I couldn't feel the comforting vibrations of the runway under the landing gears which only means one thing - we're in the air!

Okay, I can do this.

I can do this.

Still trying to convince myself that I can do this.....

About 30 mins in I start to get a weird feeling - everything is suddenly sidewise. Don't panic. I look over at HG and the girls and they are sitting there listening to their iPods, chewing gum and are happy as clams.

Don't they realize that we are literally on our sides?

I start making panicy faces at HG and I guess I didn't look quite right because now he is starting to look paniced.

As it turns out the plane was not laying on its side for a nap I was getting a migraine which explains the funny tummy at the airport earlier.!
oh man, that HAD to suck having a migrane with all the presure of being up in the airplane like that. that cabin pressure can be horrible.

Thing with my migraines is that I am really bad a noticing one is coming. I can look back after the fact and go "oh ya!" but at the time I am totally oblivious. About a minute and a half later the pain and pressure hit.

Okay, so I am not going to die in a plane crash - my head is going to explode on this plane and that is how my end will come.

I need drugs - NOW!!!!

I started trying to fish around in my bag for my pills and one of the bottles of water and couldn't find either. Not sure why I couldn't find the large bottle of water in there - it was a very small bag but I couldn't.

So HG sent Belle up to the galley to ask for water. She came back and told me that they said we'd have to wait.

Go back and tell them I need water NOW!!!!!

She came back with a can of water. A can? Yes, a pop can type can of water. Have never heard of such a thing. Oh well, who cares? It was warm too. Ick!

I started slamming back the codeine and in the process was gagging on the warm, disgusting tasting water. I think HG was just wishing we had stayed home at this point. !
ick is right on the warm water. and in a can? weird. why is airline stuff so backwords?

By the time we landed in Salt Lake City I was in a complete drugged stuppor and couldn't have cared less about the landing! Drugs were my friend that day!!
yay for drugs!!

Up we went again and then down into Albequerque. I think the flight attendents were glad to see the back end of me!

We grabbed a quick sandwhich on the way to our next gate to eat on the plane as the peanuts jusy weren't going to cut it for the daily intake for the kids. Okay, so they don't eat bread either but the Quiznos was the only thing we could find quickly and we had less then an hour until we were going to be in the air again.

Back into the A line and took turns going to the bathroom. Yes, mommy may be heavily medicated but you are still not going to pee on the plane!

Scan our boarding passes, down the gangway, touch the plane and sit!

Here we go again!

This time the plane was almost empty so we could spread out a bit. I sat with Belle and HG and Tink sat across the isle.

Here is Belle and I!




And Tink and HG!

!
cute pictures. it's always nice to have an empty plane

This flight was much easier on me. Something about having enough codiene to take down a medium sized cow may have had something to do with it.

The girls worked on their homework and I tried to nap. I have no idea what HG was doing - he loves to fly so he was probably just taking it all in.

After what seemed like an eternity we were landing in Orlando!

Did you hear that?

We made it!

And I am still alive!

The plane didn't crash and my head didn't explode!

Yippee!!!!!

Actually it was 8:05pm which was 11:05pm Vancouver time so it had been an extremely long day and we still had to get to our hotel.

We set off in seach of Disney's Magical Express!



That's it for now folks! Sorry to keep you all hanging the other day but I have to admit I had fun at your expence! Thanks for reading along with me!
yay you made it to WDW in ONE piece!! can't wait to read the next installment. You write so well. you had me with your descriptions of things. Great job!!

Glad your life can go on now! Hahahahah!!!!! I think most people would have just assumed that they would make it to the right destination but not me - I had to flip out and make a scene!

Thanks Leger! I don't get the canned water either but at that point I didn't care! Belle was a sweetheart to notice that I was flipping out inside! She is such a nice kid - I love her to bits!

We never use Air Canada either, they are the great rip off in the sky. We drive in to Maine and fly from Bangor on Delta.

If I could have driven I would have! But I will admit that flying certainly cuts down on the travel time.

I have never flown with Delta. We use Air Canada a fair bit because HG travels for business a lot and so we use his frequent flyer miles! Gotta love free!

YAY!! An update. So glad you were on the right flight. I would have been freaking out.

So sorry to hear about the migraine, I can't imagine how that feels on top of being stressed out about being on a plane. Canned, warm water yuck .

But, all that was worth it to get to WDW. Can't wait to hear more .
