Adventures of Mamaw

VW asked me to post this for her while she is busy.

My Mom, Mamaw, is terrified of flying. I was able to get her a direct
flight which only takes 1 hour and 40 minutes. First, the flight was
delayed because there was a leak in a hose. After they finally took
off 1 hour and 45 minutes LATE... they got close to Ft. Lauderdale and
had to go on down towards Miami because of a storm. Giving them an
extra 40 minutes in the air.

Last night she volunteered to sleep in the room with Tot. We offered
to move Tot, but she said it was not a problem. What she didn't
realize is that our dog likes to sleep in the same room as Tot. Oh...
why is that a problem? Because he SNORES. LOUDLY.

Tot only woke up once around 2am. So not too terribly bad. But then
the dog came in at 6am and licked Tot and Mamaw in the face. Oops.
Time to get up!

Did I mention that every time she went out to have a cigarette, it
rained. It hasn't rained here in weeks... my grass crunched when you
walked on it... but it is raining now. BTW, did you see we have a
Tropical Storm headed our way? No? Then take a peek because it is
suppose to be a hurricane by Friday.

And on the way to school this morning.. .our first day of school... I
got a flat tire. Really. I'm not joking. We got it repaired, took
the kids in and dropped them off. I knew Tot was going to be upset,
but I gave him a banana on the way and kept telling him it was ok. We
weren't gone 15 minutes when I got a call. Tot had thrown up. Yep,
had to go and get him. They won't keep them if they throw up.
Reminder to self... do NOT feed children before going somewhere they
don't like. Crying can cause food to come up if they cry hard enough.
