Message to Lori

I sent you an email yesterday and haven't heard back from you. I'll call you from Portland on Thursday morning. We leave for the airport in 6 hours (5:30 am Thursday for us= 3:30 pm Wednesday for you. I think the time zone change may have you thinking you have more time to get back to us than you actually do. : ) Or, you just haven't checked your email. : (
Either way, we will call you from Portland around 9:00 am on Thursday morning your time. I will just call your house and Mom's and your cell phone until I find you. I need to know what your plans are for coming to pick us up. Are we calling you after we get our bags? Are you parking and meeting us at baggage claim? Who's coming with you? etc. etc.
Time to get a few winks and then it's time to go home! Yay!
Love ya and can't wait to see you,
p.s. leave a message on this post before 3:00 p.m. your time on Wednesday and we'll see it before we leave.

message to Davin: I've been getting up somewhere between 4:30 and 7:30 this whole trip. Shifting continents does odd things to sleeping patterns. I can't believe I'm still awake at 11:30! I should have gone to bed at 9:00 with Maggie.
message to everyone else: We don't know how long it's going to take for us to get used to the time change back to Minnesota time. Don't make any big plans for us Friday or Saturday. Maybe Sunday we'll have people over - immediate family and a few friends. Maybe. The rest of you will have to wait - sorry. I've heard that the number of days it takes to recover from jet-lag equals the time difference between the places. So, give us 14 days and we'll be up and at 'em!

Mary - I will get everything you need on your grocery list and I will meet you at baggage claim so I can help you with luggage since I am sure Maggie will be holding on tight to you. I will have my cell phone on me tomorrow in anticipation of your call. I have never gone this long without talking to you. Weird!!! Anywho have a safe flight and I hope MaoMao enjoys flying. Get her a sucker or something for takeoff and landing I heard it hurts kids ears. I love you all bunches and I will talk to you soon.

I sure you gals already planned for this and this is irrelevant; make sure there is a car seat for Maggie when they're picked up from the airport.

Davin - Yeah we are way ahead of you :) - Meaghan is the same age so I have a toddler carseat already in there for someone about the same size - except Maggie is a lot thinner. Thank goodness for adjustable carseats. I am starting my T minus arrival countdown. Yippee!!!!! 24 hours til home!
