The Spell has been Broken

I am pleased to report that we are back "home" in Boston, and that our trip went relatively smoothly. This is wonderful because Brian pointed out a peculiar fact to me earlier this summer:

Since we have moved to the east coast, I have flown 5 times, round trip.

Three of these times, I have flown by myself and have always made it to my destination as planned, give or take a few hours.

The other two times, Brian has been with me. The first of these times, we were headed home for Christmas; and there were weather delays causing us to miss our connecting flight in Las Vegas. Result was the airline put us up in a hotel and we were re-booked on the next flight from Las Vegas to Eugene - 20 hours later. The second time we flew together was to visit Sarah & Zeb in DC. Our flight headed back to Boston was delayed, then we boarded the plane, then we were informed the flight had been cancelled. Result was the airline put us up in a hotel and we were re-booked on a flight the next morning. Notice a trend here?

This trip, however, broke this trend. I am happy to report that, fun as it is to stay in a hotel for free, we arrived where we wanted to be relatively close to the time we planned to be there. Maybe I won't have to start leaving him behind after all.

It was great to see you both. I miss you already. The games are put away until Christmas, and then we must have a rematch!

Oh, I'm so glad you're home! It felt like you were so far away on the other side of the States. I like you near me.
