This morning made me even more proud that I get to work at home. You see my brother has been living with us for a bit and has decided to go back home to NC for a while. We went online yesterday and bought him flight tickets and we picked the earliest flight available because we knew the traffic would probably be bad.
I rise and shine at 5:30am this morning and get the girls and I ready and we are out the door by 6am. His flight leaves at 8:00am and we are only about 20 minutes from the Tampa Airport. Well gooooood golly. That 20 minute drive turned into a hour and 40 minute drive. I couldn't believe it. The traffic was bumper to bumper at 6am this morning and then all kinds of wrecks everywhere so this meant fire trucks and ambulances trying to get through. I was like oh my gosh where do I go to let them by to get to the wreck. I was literally sandwiched in four lanes of bumper to bumper traffic. Lyndsee is freaking out on me. She has this love/hate relationship with her carseat well this morning was her hate relationship, then she cannot stand loud noises so the sirens were just making things worse. AHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!
I kept thinking Dear Lord, please let me always be able to work at home, because Jen would have a darn heart attack if I had to go through this everyday. I just don't get how peeps can do this every morning. The hubbs does it and he never complains. Maybe you get use to it I don't know, but that traffic was just insane.
I just knew he was not going to make his flight. We get to the airport and practically are running through with his luggage. I felt like we were in some kind of movie. The girls are cracking up at us. We get to the ticket kiosk right as they were putting up lane closed for his flight. PHEW! They took him Thank GOD! So we said our good bye's and tears. (I LOVE MY BROTHER SO MUCH, We will miss him). He was off on his flight and here the girls and I get to go back on the wonderful road. I thought surely traffic would be less by now. Nope, we got to do the hour and half drive back home too with bumper to bumper traffic sigh!
Rush hour I will beat you because Jen hopes and prays she does not have to do join you again anytime soon ;).

i do not miss traffic at all! i dont miss driving in the snow. i dont miss going into work sick. i dont miss any of it!
I’m so glad that GG now goes to a school where we could walk to get there. I used to have to drive over an hour to get her to preschool.
I love not having to brave the traffic every morning. Although we live near a school so it makes getting out of our driveway a feat every morning. But that’s ok.
