Where in the World is Kailani?

May 22, 2007

So, guess where I am?

I can tell you that it’s definitely not in Honolulu.

Yesterday morning we called the airlines and found out that all our flights out of Los Angeles and San Diego were completely sold out for the next few days. Since DH has to work on Wednesday, staying longer was definitely not an option. We started calling all our code share partners to see who flies to a city that our airlines services. We finally decided on Alaska Airlines since they offered us $25 tickets stand-by. The only problem was that we would be flying into Seattle.

Don’t get me wrong, I love Seattle. It’s just that I would prefer to go home.

After nine hours sitting in the terminal, 5 full flights, and two very tired children, we were finally on our way to SeaTac. I guess that’s the price you pay for using your flight benefits.

So yes, now we’re in Seattle. While we were checking into the hotel, we saw some of our friends who will be on the flight crew tomorrow. They said our chances of making it home are good.

So, in light of all this, the posting of the winners for the Photo Contest probably won’t get done until late on the 22nd (provided I can get home).

Also, the Carnival of Family Life is up at Be a Good Dad. Please stop by and check out all the great family-related posts he received this week. Thanks again, Mike, for taking over while I’m on vacation. I really appreciate it!

See you all when (and if) I get back!
