The waiting game.

2 hours until we leave for the airport.

overcast -2 °C

Well here I sit, patiantly waiting to leave for the airport. We got everyone up at 4am today to maybe help with the massive time change. We are all packed, hopefully we have everything. Thanks to my good friends at Tripadvisor.com we really thinned out what we packed, but it still seems like we have a lot. We have on bag packed with winter type clothes that we are going to leave with family in London, for our return mini trip. We have two large duffle bags packed with snorkel gear for 6. One small tote with a few odds and ends of everyone’s. Then everyone has their backpack carry ons.
We tried to check in on line last night with Air Canada, and they seem to have given away my seats that I had picked when we first got the tickets. They have kindly picked us seats through out the plane. So I hope whoever is sitting with my kids takes good care of them! How insane! When I tried to re pick our seats, I was told I was not allowed to do so with more the 4 travellers (not that there were ANY seats together left on the plane!) I guess the thought of that is what caused Chris and I to have NO sleep last night! Oh well I guess it will be what it will be. Our hope is that upon check in today they will have better news for us. Well that is if they let poor Chris on the plane. It seems I booked his ticket under Chris, and not Christopher, one person at Air Canada says this will be a major problem. Then when Orbitz.com (who I booked the tickets with) called Air Canada told them we don't need to change the name on the ticket because Chris is a short form of Christopher. So we will see how that pans out. That too will be what it will be, we will send him some nice postcards if he can't make it. LOL just kidding, I am sure we would just have to throw out some more cash and buy another last min ticket!

Well that is all I have for you now, smells like our pizzas are almost done, we will feed 'em up and ship 'em out!
