:wave: This is my first trip report so please bear with me!!!!
Saturday September 26th - We had a busy night on Friday, we went with Ty to X-Country practice, soccer and finally to football and never got home until about 8:30 at night. I had spent the day finishing last minute things for the trip and taking our dog Sabre to the kennel. When we fly to Disney, I usually take one of my Disney totes to use as a purse on the plane and pack a Vera back pack purse for Disney, that afternoon I put my credit card and birth certificate in the tote and headed out... that's where things began to go wrong but I didn't realize it yet!!!
Saturday morning we were up bright and early at 3:30 a.m. so that we could be at the airport by 4:45 for a 6:30 flight. I never sleep the night before we travel, I get too nervous! :sorry: Our son picked us up at our house at 4:00 a.m. and we were all ready, bags were in the hallway, we loaded uo and off we went! We got to the airport by 5:10 and I had done the pre flight check in and had pre-paid our luggage and had our boarding passes, Good shape right? :thumbsdown: Not so much, we sailed to the front of security check line and the agent checks Ben, then Ty, and asks me for my drivers license :jawdrop: OMG, I left it in my purse back home because I was driving Ty all over HXXX's half acres last night. I had no photo ID with me except for 1 grainy BJ'S card that I had forgotten to take out.
They pulled us out of line and everything began to go fuzzy, in the background I could hear Tyler asking Ben if we weren't going to Florida. Most of you know that I'm a type 1 diabetic but I have heart problems and a very wierd Central Nervous System disorder that reacts badly to stress, fear and exhaustion by shutting down. I pass out and am sick and have a hard time focusing. Well I must have gone grey and I hear Ty saying Mom, Mom are you ok? Well the poor agent didn't know what to do and looked at the huge package of Disneyish papers and reservations in my red folder, looked at my birth certificate and let us on the plane!!! Phew.. But by that time the damage was started already.
I was sitting in the plane and I realized I had never asked Tink what hospital we should go to if we needed to,, Wierd what yor mind thinks of!!I was able to doze on and off on the flight but we had a 4 hour lay over in Atlanta. What a huge airport.Luckily things calmed down for awhile and we landed in Orlando with no further trouble. ME was wonderful, the line must have been 2 miles long but very efficient, we wound our way around and was on a bus in 15 minutes and on our way after that in about 5!!!:yes:
more later , must pick up Tyler!
