Like Gilgamesh...

We are finally home from the East Coast Extravaganza, but unfortunately our luggage is not. We had a bit of an epic battle to get back to California due to some rainsleethaillightningstorm in Chicago. The two quick flights were supposed to take 6 hours, but unfortunately they turned into 14 and a half hours of aural torture for me and 247 of my closest soon-to-be-enemies. The tough thing about both flights is that we were already on the plane when we got delayed... like sardines... marinating in that really stinky oil. Jackson... not happy. Me... breastsore and weary, driven to tears twice. Julie... the random passenger who so kindly volunteered to hold my overtired, squalling son while I washed my face and took a few deep breaths... a saint! But we made it home safe and sound and only a tiny bit worse for the wear!

Hopefully the luggage will arrive today so that I can post a picture or two from the ECE. In the mean time check out Uncle Robbie in all his piratical glory...
