I am FINALLY HOME!!! wooooooohooooooo!!! I'm tellin you all...the flight home seemed to take FOREVER!!! We left Thursday EVENING and flew for like 20 hrs and when we got to Phoenix it was STILLLL THursday evening!!! How WEIRD IS THAT???
And let me tell you all, our trip home was an adventure from the very start!!! We pulled up into the airport in Manila and we get all our luggage out and we took seperate taxis to the airport and so we pay the cab drivers and we're hauling our luggage across the airport parking lot and John is like OH NO!!! He had left his and my mom's back packs on the back seat of the taxi...Cuz he was very distracted when he left...which I will explain to you all WHY soon, SO he is like OH NO!!! My backback had my passport in it!!! So we're like, UH THIS IS NOT GOOD!!! Cuz you can NOT leave without your passport!!!
So we're all like havin a heart attack, and I'm not gonna lie, I was holding back EXTREME LAUGHTER, cuz John kept makin this HUGE deal to make sure that I HAD MY PASSPORT!!! LOLOL!!! So the Manila security and police are ALL OVER IT!!! Callin people etc...and ALL OF THE SUDDEN the taxi cab driver pulls up with the STUFF!!! I lifted my hands right there in the Manila parking lot of the airport and with the biggest smile EVERRRR and said...THANK YOU JESUS!!!
NOW that John has his passport he tells us WHY he was sooooo distracted when he got out...the Taxi cab was FULL of ROACHES!!!!! Ewwwwwww!!! 3 crawled across his leg and one was on my mom's back!!! They said that the taxi cab driver just reached over while driving, gets the roach, crushes it and throws it out the window!!! Then he says to my mom, Oh you guys don't have roaches in America??? AHAHHAHA!!! Of course we do buuuuuuuut...still...OMW!!! I soooooo would have been screaming my head off !!! ALL of Manila and probabley Bohol as well would have known!!!
Sooooooo finally we are on our way to the US!!! After we FINALLY land for our three hour layover in Honalulu we are rushing through to our next flight, we get to customs where your luggage has to get checked AGAIN for like the MILLIONTH time!!! ANd Mary Jo is like, OH NO!!! I don't have my back pack!!! So everyone is like OH GREAT and i'm all like weeelll i'll go run and see if I can find it...
soooooo I run across the airport, FIND IT, going BACK through customs and when I get back to MJ she is like, YOu know how I remembered that my backpack was missing? Stanley told me!!! I was holding him and he said, "Mommy! You don't have your backpack!!!" I was like, Seriousley??? OMW!!! WOW!!! I guess that STUPID doll is good for SOMETHING!!! Ahahahaha!!!
Anywayz, the trip was AMAZINGLY AWESOME!!! I had such a good time, BUUUUUT i'm soooo sick of haulin luggage around!!! LOLOL!!! Its good to be HOME!!! :)
