Ha Ha Ha. Your MIL sounds like mine. Every time she comes somewhere with us Faron complains about all the crap she takes with her. She needs a pack muel to follow her around the carry all of the stuff she brings.

The mental image of your MIL and the unloading of all her stuff has me wiping tears from my eyes. Oh, my goodness. How will she ever get everything packed away again (including the corn-filled shoulder warmer bag ) in time???

That didn't work either. I was like a monkey on crack with the remote control. The worst thing was I felt like a cold was setting in.

By 5, I had the troops showered, dressed and in the vehicles, without one fight, complaint, whine, or threat of bodily harm. Normally that would have been a huge accomplishemt that would have won me a Nobel Peace prize or perhaps Secretary of State. Nope.

Behold. The power of going to disney world.

We got ourselves parked in the ecconomy, way out in the boonies, lot. And started our hike to the terminal in about 15 degree weather. But we were all armed with our light jackets and the knowledge that we would soon be in sunny Florida. Take that freezing north west.

Well, all but one of us was......can you guess who was the dissenter?
I, like a mothr duck, was at the head of our line of 7 and turned around to see MIL wearing her PARKA. I think she missed the memo about Florida being way south of us and not up north near Alaska.
We were all warmed by thoughts of sunshine and magical express, while she was anticipating a trip through frozen tundra on a dog sled.

We got checked in and through security.....again this is amazing to me each time we make it. You never know what's hiding in the recess of an 8 & 11 yr old boys back pack.......
In MIl's effort to remove her parka, shoes ,and get all her stuff ready for security, she ended up several groups behind us.

I took the time to run and get some cold medicine for me and Bailie, she was feeling something too. When I got done with that MIL had finaly made it through security and was in the process of getting her things back together...........this was a warning of things to come.

We were all hungry by this time so we ended up at starbucks for breakfast. The fact that non of us drink coffee is a little funny to me as I sit there reading the menu. I finally just gave up and said what doesn't have coffe in it?

Several muffins, fruit cups, fruity drinks and $42 bucks later, we were on our way to the gate.

When we borded the crop duster that would take us to our connection in SLC. The boys were further back on the plane then the girls. This had rows of 4 seats , 2 on each side. Bailie was next to me by the window and MIL was across the aisle next to a saint of a man.

What took place the next 15 minutes could have come straight from a Jerry Lewis comedy, if Jerry Lewis were a 66 year old woman.

She had this ginormous back pack, carry on thing along with a huge purse, pillow( no not a travel size pillow, a regular size one), blanket (again huge) and her faux fur lined parka.

When she was able she would stand in the aisle unpacking all these things from her swiss army knife of carry-on's. Just when I thought there couldn't possibly be anything else, she'd pull out something like.....her lap top, newspaper, or book.

When someone else would need past her, she would squeeze her self into her seat, elbowing and half sitting on the poor guy next to her. The flight attendant askled her at least twice to hurry, because they were ready to go. I think they were half stunned by the amount of crap this lady had.

Once she had all her neccesities out for the hour and fifteen minute flight, it required a flight attendant and me to hold all her stuff so she could locate the seatbelt. This again ended with the guy getting an elbow or 2 to the ribs.

She finally settled in for the flight with her parka still on, this would be removed 15 minutes into the flight causing more pain to the guy next to her, a blanket on her lap, pillow behind her head, strange corn filled shoulder warmer bag, on her shoulders, lap top turned off, but on her lap, newspaper that would end up causing more pain for the saint next to her, a sudoku book and a novel, along with her drink, fruit cup and other assorted snacks. All this for a short flight.

I sat across the aisle, half mortified and half laughing at the sight. Mostly I was worried, because we only had 20 minutes after we landed untill our next flight departed......

up next......the amazing race.
There are no words.

Can't wait for the next installment....aka the amazing race!

Holy carp, Batman!

Well, if you had to live through this, at least you get to take advantage of the free DIS-therapy of writing all about it in glorious detail here!

I hope feeling a cold isn't a sign of anything to come! Flights can always be adventurous...I can only imagine what else happens!

From the back of the plane

The only thing I really remember about this part of the trip is seeing my mom as the "last one standing". This usually is not a good thing. At first, I thought the flight attendant was being rude, but then remembered she was talking to my mom. I was glad we were several rows behind her at that time. I do feel really bad for that person that had to sit by her.

Let me explain a little more about my mom. When I was younger, and when she came home, she didn't just sit down. She spread out. I mean everything she had was spread out over the space of 3 to 4 seats. Hence the swiss army back pack. I just hope the guy next to her wasn't too annoyed with all the crap she spread out.
