Wow. What a trip! I have so many things to write and after having been awake from 11pm to 3am last night, I'm going to put off most of it for the next few days.
I met fabulous people at BlogHer (and plan to mention all of them here in coming posts) and had an amazing time.
We started out Saturday night - our plane was delayed about half an hour, but it turned out that it was because the weather conditions were better than expected, so the flight was 'only' 14-1/2 hours. I don't like flying. I'm not scared of flying, but I really don't enjoy it. Even the gourmet meals* they serve don't make me like flying... Yirmi was incredible on the flight - I mean, he made a few sounds when he woke up, but he didn't cry even once. An idiot woman shushed him angrily. Fortunately (for her) I couldn't find her...
We landed in LA a little after 6 and I managed to squeeze in a phone call to my parents who were flying to Seattle to go on an Alaskan cruise (or whatever it's called). They'd left their rental car with 3 days on the rental in the parking lot - within an hour, I'd picked it up and was off to my SIL's parents' house (where we stayed in their guesthouse). I really never thought I'd see the west coast at all and had no idea what to expect.
