There's No Place Like Home

I'm back...barely. My husband and daughter and I were gone last week visiting my in-laws in Arkansas. The trip was nice, we got a lot of visiting in, and I even survived the 85 degree temperatures and humidity. Then it was time to go home. Or try to go home. Our flight Saturday afternoon out of Little Rock kept getting delayed due to severe weather, including (gulp) tornadoes. We needed to get to Dallas in order to make our connection to Seattle. Well, after spending eight hours at the airport (thank you, portable DVD player) we finally were able to fly out to Dallas. By the time we arrived (it took us twice as long to get there and we had to wait on the plane for an hour for a gate to open), we had missed the last plane to Seattle and ended up spending the night in Dallas. We got to the hotel at 2:30 a.m. and slept about five hours before we had to turn around and go back to the airport to catch our flight to Seattle. Oh, and we did not have any of our luggage. It stayed in Dallas. Which meant a purchased hotel toothbrush and toothpaste were about all we had to work with! It was all quite an adventure, and a little scary. Have you ever flown through lightning flashes? Not exactly ideal. But we are home. Safe and sound, wet luggage and all. I hope to be posting again soon...
