I am a crazy person. My dad and mom are finally retired from the rat race (that I have another XX years to get to the finish!), so my Dallas sister and I planned on a quick no-kids weekend to celebrate in AZ. She, being closer, was able to get flights during the waking hours. I, being the long distance one, had to manage with the very late Friday and overnight Sunday-Monday. Even better, I got to go to work after landing Monday morning, but not before being able to refresh at home since I got in so early. Things I learned:
- There are very few people in Sky Harbor at 10 PM at night.
- Conversely, there are no concession stands open for a snack.
- I am not as old as I thought, since I could not just sleep anywhere (like on a plane seat!).
- I am still young as I was able to go with only a couple hours of sleep and get through an entire day of work on Monday. Thankfully I take public trans so I was not a driving hazard.
- I love AZ Mexican food, and it just is not worth getting it in Boston.
- I can still do things that surprise the heck out of the family (see below)
- Don't buy suvies while waiting for a plan. But you have to when you don't plan well.
And the last item: this was the weekend that we shared the news with family: The Seven Evans are back! At least, when the fifth child comes in February.
