So we’re back home, and I’m alone in the house. How odd after three weeks of togetherness! There is no husband hovering, waiting to check the Japanese news sites; no kids wanting to play games with their Webkinz; no parents waiting for me to disconnect so that they can use the telephone. (So now you know why I didn’t blog much while on vacation.)
We had a bit of an adventure after deplaning in Osaka Monday night. We got off the plane, carrying heavy Lilia, and there was no wheelchair! The cabin crew assured us that the wheelchair had been loaded onto the plane, but all we saw were three airport wheelchairs and a folded stroller. One of the flight attendants went looking for it and came back with a little old Chinese lady riding around in Lilia’s chariot! “No wonder it’s so small,” she reportedly said upon being advised of her error. Lilia was outraged, but happy to get it back.
