So I survived a plane ride with my two kids by myself! With a layover in Raleigh-Durham no less. It was much, much better than I anticipated. The toughest part was getting out at JFK (staircase deplane-ing and then the elevator was broken to get to baggage claim. But a few people came by and helped us out and Ben helped me get the luggage and the car seats out to long term parking. I didn’t get lost on the way home either. Woo hoo.
Ben Wen invited me to his wedding. It’s right near us, in Catskills, NY. I’m really bummed I can’t go, we’ll be going to another wedding on the other side of the ocean.
