I actually said to Heiner today that if I knew Fynn would be ok I'd wean him now....as in this minute.

But I know I cant do that, He cant drink anything so I have to carry on nursing him.

Re: Basically it's the end of the weekend.

Hey mamas. We are in MI and sorta settled. Our stuff comes on the truck early tomorrow morning.

I have many stories to tell, but I won't be able to type them out for a while yet. I do have a quick ignorant southerner question. I've never lived in a house with floor registers, the vents that the heat goes through. I assume I can't put a sofa or a bed over them. What about a side table, or is that a bad idea? What if I close a floor register, can I put a sofa or a bed over it? There is one in the living room (and there are several so it's not really needed I don't think) I'd like to close so I can put the sofa there, if I can.

Re: Basically it's the end of the weekend.

Okay while I'm waiting for someone to tell me if it's okay to put furniture over closed registers, I will share one story.

Another ticket seat snafu, where they assigned us 2 and 2 and 1 in subsequent rows. Of course they don't let you change the seats before you get to the gate for whatever stupid reason. Get to the gate, and stupid person says they can't change our seats. Also says we can't preboard with all our kids, so we can get there before everyone else to potentially ask if we can trade seats. And of course flight attendants are so busy they can't really help you in real time for these things.

So I'm sitting with Ian, and DH I thought was going to sit with the girls and pre-empt person to trade seats. Ian is high-maintenance, so I don't see DH goes to his assigned seat, dumbass. Guy takes seat next to girls and DH tells him the situation, and asks if he can trade seats.

Guy says, no, I paid for this seat and I'm sitting here.

DH says, sir, it's going to be a very long flight for all of us if I can't sit next to my kids. Please reconsider.

Guy says no thanks.

DH is on the verge of having giant meltdown, but says fine. If they are loud, spill stuff on you, cry, whatever, it's on you. I can't do anything about it from here.

So girls sit next to ****head, which infuriates me for about 5-10 minutes until flight attendents come to close all the bins and such. Then flight attendants ask DH where his kids are, and he tells them he tried to change seats with guy, and he wouldn't move. Flight attendant asks him to move, and he resists. Flight attendant assumes guy has language barrier and probably makes issue worse, but gets him to move.

I don't begrudge anyone asking for special favors if they have to change seats, I totally understand you *should* get what you pay for. I am equally frustrated you can tell the airline online you are travelling with small children as you are purchasing your tickets, and they not only don't tell you your seat assignments until after you buy but put you in distant seats. But seriously, I have never seen anyone like that.

But otherwise the flight went ok. The kids were very well behaved. I was kind of hoping they'd kick the guys seat the whole flight, but they didn't.

Cheryl don't put furniture over open registers. Closed registers are ok. J think tables should be ok. I'm glad you had a decent flight. What kind of heat did u have if you didn't have forced air heat

Re: Basically it's the end of the weekend.

In Texas usually central ac/heat is in ducts in the attic, same when we lived in California. We can't have basements so it is rarely in the floors. When we lived in Chicago we had steam heat, so it was in the wall. In Amsterdam we had window units.

Re: Basically it's the end of the weekend.

Cheryl dont place furniture like sofas over open registeres and dont close too many or your house will be cold this winter. A table should be fine.

Sorry for the butthead on the flight.

Janine sorry for the thrush and for Derry's foot.

Off to take care of my sich DH...poor puking flu guy.
