Or trying to at least.
My amazing, loving, out-of-this-world husband knows that every now and then, Mommy needs a break. So, once a year (and sometimes twice if I'm really lucky) I get to go away and spend time with some of my friends. This time 3 of us are visiting our friend Ruth in Chicago. All of us parent difficult kids and it's great to get together with other moms who really get "it."
The only down side is that I leave today. As I write this, I am sitting in the airport while a snow storm rages outside. The same snow storm that hit Chicago this morning. At this point, Southwest is still saying we are leaving "On Time."
I want to believe them.
I really do.
The flight a ahead of ours is even boarding.
I can't see the runway. And there is at least an inch of snow on the plane at the neighboring gate.
Still, I'm hopeful I'll get there.
