An update, 25 minutes later.
Lunch is served--peanut butter and jellies, a banana, a side of honey mustard pretzels. We're at 2:30 St. Louis Time, 9:30 a.m. Hawaii time. Stuck between breakfast and lunch AND dinner. Oh well, today will be a day of 7 meals. And one of those is going to include rice and something fried. Oh, the glory.
Since take-off, I have received numerous emails, checked facebook, blogged (now twice). At last check, my flight tracker says we have reached the Pacific Ocean, which means this little Internet party is about to come to an end. Boo.
I feel like I need to say all kinds of things about this day, and how it was to leave my husband for 16 days, how my girls cried for a solid 5 minutes and how the hardest part of this whole travel experience has not been the many children, but their many, small bags. I had a *slight* scare, that I had left my new laptop at the Salt Lake City airport...turns out, it was IN MY LAP. There is also my fear of flying (almost non-existent at this point), and my deep, deep LOVE of Delta Airlines. It's like I am about to die and I just need to entertain you with a few more non-relevant and ridiculous details of my day.
But as it turns out, I will rejoin the land of Internet connection in approximately 5 hours.
Until then, keep it real, blogworld.
