It has became a pattern of ours. There haven’t been a single family trip we have been able to handle without a last minute mega stress.. Just a sample of our previous adrenaline rushes:
- realising you lost your passport 5h before departure ? Checked!
- forgetting your exit clearance and having to rush back from the airport to the Emigration with 2 exhausted whining toddlers? Checked!
- reading the date of departure right but not the time? Checked ! 00:45 means being at the airport the night before.. Now we know it, our names were called so many times in the airport that all the passengers clapped when we finally made it in the plane..
- Now what? we are leaving to Japan on Thursday and guess what? Just found out that The French Embassy wrote M instead of F for Ms Attila’s gender. Now we need to fly to Manila to get an emergency passport, and we are still stuck at the airport where our 5 AM plane is announced with at least 3h delay.. Of course we need to get the exit clearance once we get the passport (fingers crossed we get the passport on time). Breathe in.. Breathe out .. the adventure is starting right now.
Please make me feel normal and reassured: can you relate to our poor planning skills ?… I used to be so well organised when I was flying for work at least twice a month. Last time I went to the doctor for fatigue, forgetfulness and inability to focus. I was diagnosed with ..Motherhood 😛
