Well, we made it. That’s more than I can say about our luggage though. We landed at O’Hare from Tokyo with less than an hour to get luggage, go through immigration, customs, re-check luggage, take a train to the last terminal, get through security and hop on our flight to D.C. so of course our luggage didn’t make it. The snow was coming down when we landed in the Windy City and we thought we were definitely sleeping with a deep dish pizza. As we were taxiing down the runway, one of the pilots came out into the cabin and checked the wings out the window. I thought for sure we were turning around but no, we took off and were out of there.
So today, our travel clothes are clean again, the air is crisp and my tummy can’t wait to get to the Cheesecake Factory for lunch with my folks. It is pretty strange to be here again in the in-law’s house and to know that our home is literally on the other side of the planet. I’m happy to be here and I know that Rocky is safe and have even spoken to him twice on the phone this weekend. MB says he perks up when he hears my voice.
I will be back here probably sooner than later and will have an update on our frozen luggage. XOXO-K
UPDATE: All our luggage arrived safely and unopened on the doorstep this afternoon. Whew! Went to Borders with my folks and was a bit overwhelmed but in hog heaven.
