You Can't Be Everywhere

This is one of B's non-work weekends.  We have enjoyed each other's company, gone out to eat, done a little shopping, went to church this morning, visited with our family this afternoon and celebrated one of our cousin's 16th birthday.  It's been a wonderful weekend.

This weekend, my family up north celebrated the baptism of my niece and nephew.  And thankfully, with today's social media, I have been able to see photos of this blessed event.   Even though I would love to have been there to see it in person, it is not possible for me to be everywhere.  Thankfully, I think my family know how much I love them and support them in all ways.

No matter where we live, or what we do, we are never going to be able to attend every event.  It's just not physically possible.  We have tremendous families and friends on both ends of this state, that we love so much.   So we do our best to get to as much as we can and still carve out time for ourselves. 

It's a balancing act and so far, I think we have done a pretty good job at it!

My Night in the Airport

Last night we tried to fly home from Virginia Beach.  We had spent a long weekend with my BFF from high school and her husband and family.  Her oldest son got married and we had a ton of fun.  Then we headed home.  All fun was left at the entrance to the airport!

Our flight out of Norfolk was delayed, meaning we would probably miss our connection in Baltimore to Portland.  But we remained hopeful.  We shouldn't have.  We finally got on the plane in Norfolk, an hour and a half late, and then sat on the tarmac for 10 minutes due to weather at our destination.

When we finally landed in Baltimore, we had missed our plane to Portland by 10 minutes (it was delayed due to mechanical).  I had a very unhappy husband.  Very.  We ended up staying at the airport overnight.  He slept.  I kept one eye open and watched the crazy cleaning people race their vacuums and enjoy each other's company. 

This morning we thought we were golden, an 8:45 flight home.  Then they changed our gate 4 times and when we finally were getting loaded onto the plane, our boarding passes didn't work, so we had to get out of line and go get new ones!! 

When we finally got home, I showered and worked a half day.  I have had about 90 minutes of sleep in the past 36 hours.  I'm ready for bed that's for sure!

I've learned I'd rather not spend the night in the airport...ever again!!
