December 22 – Travel
How did you travel in 2010? How and/or where would you like to travel next year?
In February last year I went to visit my sister in Ontario. Moira didn’t sleep on the 4-hour flight – either there or back. She doesn’t like being in her car seat – especially not during a 2 hour drive from the airport. Neither of us were feeling well the whole time we were there. In many ways I hate travelling and mostly I just want to stay home.
While we were there Moira got to know her cousins Sam (14) and Thomas (7). She had a great time and Thomas was very concerned about who was going to look after Moira when the baby came. He wanted to come and look after her but was very worried he wouldn’t be able to reach her Cherrios on top of the fridge. I got to spend a week with my sister. We read magazines. We looked at houses online (back when the Mister & I were house hunting). We got to see each other face to face instead of just talking on the phone.
So, sick while I don’t like travelling I do like visiting my sister. It has always been important to me to have a relationship with my nephews. Now it is even more important to me that the girls know their cousins. Do I want to travel next year? Not really. Will I? Probably. The girls and I will probably go to Ontario again to visit my sister and my parents. Am I looking forward to the actual travel part? Not even a little bit. (Now I get to fly with two kids! Oh joy!) But I’m sure things will be fine once we are there.
