Planes, Trains & Automobiles


I travel a lot. I've experienced many traveling nightmares. But yesterday was by far one of the worst! (What intensified the pain was the fact that I just wanted to get HOME for Christmas!!!)

I'll spare you all the painful details, but we really did take every form of transportation you can possibly imagine to get home yesterday. And it was a NIGHTMARE! I had a feeling when I saw that our layover was in Chicago at O'Hare...this alone is a nightmare when it's snowing and it's Christmas Eve Eve. 

I will say that after a stressful flight from Boston we almost missed our connecting flight in Chicago. We were "those people" running through the airport - bags swinging everywhere and sweat dripping from our faces. Haha. We were a sight. Well, then we had to take a shuttle (in the blizzard) to our next terminal. We made our flight just in time...and then sat on the runway for 3 hours...on a tiny plane. I thought I was going to have a panic attack. 

However, we finally made it to Wichita by 2:00 a.m. We were greeted by our exhausted family...and no luggage. 

Oh well, at least we made it HOME SWEET HOME!

P.S. My mother in law is amazing and left us little gifts on our pillows. Mr. Ruby got cigars and I got a cute little ornament of Ruby Red Slippers!
