Escape to peace

After a crazy morning of lice removal, I escaped to the airport. I sat all alone at the gate, reading a book. I didn't have to worry whether my kids were getting in trouble. I could get a snack from a vending machine, without have 3 kids beg me to buy more and more, and more. Oh how I love a direct flight! It's totally wortht the extra 6,000 rewards points, to avoid 6 hours extra travel time, the possibility of missing/delayed flights, and more icky airplanes. I enjoyed my snack, read a book, took a nap, and before I knew it, I could see the beautiful Utah mountains.

This week I'll be spending with my friend Tiffani. Tiffani and I were very pregnant with our 3rd child at the same time. We had the same midwife, and generally became best friends real quick. I spent time with her at Disney, so it hadn't been too long since we saw each other, and we connected right back. Tiffani is from a family of 13 kids. We went to her parents' house for dinner. She expected me to be overwhelmed, but honestly after just spending time at a Benac reunion, this family get together didn't seem that crazy at all. So now we are winding down for the day, and getting ready for a full week of adult education and fun. Oh how I love the mountains, and the gorgeous sunset. (we were going 75 down the freeway, or else I would have taken a picture to share)

By the way: Many thanks to you, Joe!!! I love you, and you can't know how much I appreciate this time off!

I was almost planning to be there (in Utah)! However, good thing I am not, because Eli just had his 1st tooth coming out, and we both have been pretty miserable. Enjoy your VACATION!
