As you can imagine, the blog hasn’t been updated in a few days because it’s been a bit overwhelming to get ready to go on a trip, particularly when all the usual supports you are used to are removed. It was manageable, but the blog had to fall to the bottom of my priorities.
We left for the airport at 4:30am on Saturday morning, the 31rst. The drive to Changi was the first time I felt like I had exhaled since everything had gone down with B. Knowing that home was just a (very very long) plane ride away was a huge comfort.
As we arrived at Changi, I smiled.
Then I saw the decorations outside Changi and my smile got even bigger…Angry Birds! Apparently there was some sort of sponsored Visa promotion with Angry Birds. It ended December 31rst (the day we flew) so I’m very glad we didn’t miss out, because I loved the decorations. Terminal 3 has never looked this fun!
Pictures are via my phone, so the quality is not as high.
We arrived safe and sound in the US. We had a few delays, but everyone arrived in one piece, as did our luggage, so I can’t complain. In the end, our quiet New Years Toast with my in-laws and the friends that met us at the airport was much more our speed than how crazy Boston would have been.
The cats are a pet hotel, sharing an air-conditioned “luxury” cattery. I’m waiting to hear how they’re doing, but I imagine that the required bath they were given didn’t go over well, especially with Kerowyn (who isn’t known for her laid back nature).
