In Which We Go On An Airplane

Well, we added a new first to our list of unusual places Connor has had a seizure.  He managed one at 33,000 feet in the air this morning, in the middle of an airplane.  Luckily it was a pretty short one, he stayed breathing and the flight attendants didn't notice.  We didn't really want to send the plane down early or anything. 

So you may be wondering what, exactly we were doing on said airplane.  We were flying home from Texas; we've actually been gone since December 17th.  So all of those posts where I didn't have any pictures and/or wrote a really short blog were actually due to a combination of bad Internet connections and settings that definitely didn't look like Washington state in mid-December.  The other reason the posts were short is because it is very difficult to find things to write about that didn't involve giving away the fact that we were actually somewhere else.  Like when I said that Jer was feeling under the weather, when actually we were in Colorado for a wedding and he got altitude sickness and threw up all over our hotel room and then just felt generally horrible until we got back down to an elevation under 6,000 feet.  That was a fun couple of days there.

Anyway, I tried my best to not let the cat out of the bag while we were gone because while I love all of you very dearly, I have no idea who most of you are.  And so since I didn't really want to broadcast something like "Hey, Our House Is Empty Right Now!  Come Visit And Check Out Our TV, Appliances And Small Valuables!" I figured it would be better to talk about the trip after the fact.  But it was very difficult, because I didn't want to lie to you.  So I just had to find a bunch of stuff to talk about that didn't have anything to do with what we were actually doing at that moment, which I did with a debatable degree of success.  This is what happens when you write a personal narrative-type blog, I suppose.

But now I get to talk about our trip, which I will do once I have actually gotten some sleep.  We got up for our flight at 3:30 this morning Texas Time, which works out to 1:30 in the morning for us, and then caught a five or so hour flight (direct, thank goodness) that left at 5:40 our time.  And then we unpacked, I took a quick nap, ate dinner and went to derby practice.  So I am just a wee bit tired at the moment.

Anyway, there is a Christmassy-type picture of Connor and me taken by my lovely sister to tide you over until tomorrow, when I will have many, many more things to share with you!
