So, stuck in Houston for my 6-hr layover. I didn't think it would be so bad. I figured that I would get my luggage from continental and then thought I would recheck-in with Singapore Air and then off for some airport shopping, maybe an airport pedicure and some lunch. Doesn't sound too bad, does it? Well - I didn't realize that you can only check in for flights somewhere between 3-5hrs early depending on the airline. I called Singapore Air and for them, from Houston, check-in is 4hrs pre-flight which means 2 things. First, I am stuck with my huge suitcase for at least another hour but worse - I cannot get back in to the terminals to shop/eat etc until I check back in. Hmm.... Didn't think about that. So, thankfully there is a marriott in between the terminals so I am using their free internet while sitting in their comfy lobby.
Clare had a great first night at the Robertsons - or at least Heather is making me feel better by at least telling me that. Today they are at the ball field watching Drew play football and Brooke cheer. Heather sent me a cute shot which I attached below. Looking forward to meeting Clare's little sister in about 36hrs. Finally!!!
More to come from Moscow.
