Holding Pattern

>> Wednesday, February 27, 2008

My bedroom and bathroom are in various stages of destruction. I have things "sorted" into piles: check, carry on, carry on but have to be in a baggie, might take...

I was just searching the Aer Lingus website to check out the movie selection. I have to admit that I am pleased to see August Rush will be playing on our return flight.

I wanted to check our seat reservations (4 in the middle and one on an aisle directly behind) but I can't seem to find our booking reference number on the tickets. I also wanted to see if the children's discounted seats automatically came with children's meals or if I had to order those in advance.

By this time Friday we will be going through security. Which is great fun as we have a car seat, two laptops and 5 carry on bags going through. As well as a couple of personal carry-ons. Yep, people pray they don't get stuck in line behind us. No matter how organized you are that is never a quick process...

Ya know, I love Irish music. And the song Aer Lingus keeps playing is a good one... I'm guessing it's called "Home Away From Home" and in a few minutes I'll be able to sing it.


Hey, I found it. It is called "Home Away From Home"

Lyrics By : Robbie O'Connell

I didn't sleep at all last night,
I stayed up 'til the dawn,
Banging out the jigs and reels 'til everyone had gone,
Singing some old shut-eyed songs I hadn't sung for years,
Knocking back the brandy and the beer.


Back across the ocean to
my home away from home
I'm Glad to be returning but sad to have to go
I'd like to find a way to be two places at one time
It's easy going back
again but it's hard to say goodbye

I had one bag too many just as I was set to leave
I was loaded down with bacon and with sausages and tea
And I couldn't find my ticket as I'm walking out the door
'Til I emptied all my bags out on the floor.


On board the plane I sip a drink
while waiting for the meal,
Just trying not to let my head know how my
stomach feels.
There's a baby right behind me making sure that I won't sleep
And the flight's too full to find another seat.


I fell asleep at last just as the plane is touching down
And I age ten years just waiting for the bags to come around
And I make it home at last and I'm barely un-packed when
I'm already making plans to go again.


Now I can sing along... At least it's catchy... I've been on hold for 29 minutes...

I hope you guys have a great time on your trip! I love those overnight flights because the kids are used to sleeping at that time. Oh what fun, I am so jealous. :)
