i'll be home for christmas

Tonight, our flight leaves for France, where I'll get to see my parents for the first time in 2010.

When I was little, I would always annoy my parents with "Are we there yet?" when we were on long car trips. Since I couldn't conceptualize time well, my mom would calculate hours in episodes of Sesame Street. She would say: "Almost honey, only three more Sesame Streets." And that would maybe shut me up for one more Sesame Street before I had to ask again.

It's going to be 16 hours of travel time, folks. That's 32 episodes of Sesame Street.

Have a f-a-n-t-a-s-t-i-c time. Remember those headphones...there will certainly be lots of time for airplane movies! Happy Holiday! :-)

Have a great time. You are very funny...that is a lot of Sesame Street episodes.

It has been fun following your blog this past year and I have appreciated you stopping by mine as well.

Merry Christmas!

That is a very long time. I was thinking from Texas is must be far. But that is really far! It's 6.5 hours for me and that's about all I can handle. I just go crazy sitting still!
