home at last!!!

im so happy to be home. i did love being at conference, but i love my house more. yesterday, we went out with Lori Bryan to the mall. we went to see the capitol, the library of congress, the supreme court building, and the american history museum. it was kinda boring, but the library of congress was fun. when we got back to the hotel, we caught the shuttle going out to dulles, and rode out there. it was really busy at dulles, and there was fairly tight security because of the stuff that happened in london that morning. after we got through the metal detectors, there were a bunch of signs saying 'shuttle to gate C, gate D' etc. we had to search for the gate G one, since we were G10. when we found it, the doors led outside to a bus thing on the tarmac. we actually drove to the gate across the tarmac, past the planes! the gate was this little building out away from the main check-in area. there was a teeny gift shop and a small bar/ deli thing. i bought a book at the gift shop, and we sat down to wait. this was around 4pm. around 625, they started saying that the plane was delayed, and it would be around 745 when we left instead of 7. but as it got closer to 745, it began to pour outside, from the tropical storm stuff, and the airport people said the plane was stuck on the runway in toronto, and hadnt left yet. so we were still there, in a sucky airport terminal. finally they said the plane had left toronto around 830, and was on its way. so around 930, we got on the plane and left, 4 1/2 hours after arriving. we got into kansas city around 1130pm, got our stuff, and went home. i was soooo happy to be back. i did finish a knitting project while waiting for the plane. i read a little before going to sleep for 10 hours. so that was my fun trip! please note the sarcasm in that statement. byes! -celia
