So yesterday, for some sin or sins that escape me at the moment, I spent seven hours in Los Angeles International Airport waiting for a delayed flight with six children aged seven and under (three ours, three belonging to the sister-in-law). I'm now officially Childfree and will be going to eke out the rest of my existence as a hermit. I just need to find some moors or a heath or something.
Though there were high points. When we got there, there was a crowd of Muslim women wearing jet black head to toe hijab. Evan stopped, pointed, and said in a loud delighted voice, "Daddy! Look! NINJAS!!!!!
Anyway, we got to our cabin in Estes Park at about 1:30 a.m., only about six hours later than anticipated. Vacation day one will involve lots of sitting on the deck. I can see the hotel featured in the Shining from here. That should be relaxing. Of course, anyone who has spent a full day in an airport with young kids knows that you don't need malevolent spirits in the deep midwinter to start thumbing the edge of the axe.
