Wow, between vacation and business travel, I've spent about 19 interrupted hours in airplanes. I'm amazed at how sticky and gross I feel after so much travel. I was fortunate enough to catch an early flight home from Calgary and happily accepted a middle seat. It is a small sacrifice for spending an additional 6 hours in my home with my family. I simply cannot wait to lounge on the couch and wrestle with the little ones. I think I'm even looking forward to a normal activity like grocery shopping. Home sweet home, almost. US customs still to go.
