We have arrived!

It was a LONG flight. We left Hawaii at 5:30 PM, landed in Minneapolis at 6:00 AM their time (1:00 AM for us) and then jetted on over to the big city around 10:00. I slept maybe an hour, so I'm a little whipped. I'm hanging in there so I can get on a normal schedule tonight.
We have the kids, and my in laws here so we're having a great time.

I do want to mention something I always find annoying when traveling... Public Restrooms. I hate them! I especially hate the ones that flush automatically. You're sitting there, trying to do your business but don't move..not one little bit, because that sucker will flush and spray your backside. Anyone else know about this?
How about when you go into the stall and the seat's all wet? How does THAT happen? Seriously people, wipe it off if you can't do better.
The motion detector faucets are lovely, as are the soap dispensers. However, when I've saved myself from touching those things and have to crank out a paper towel with my hand, what's the point? Really?
Those are my observations from last night/today's flight.
Oh, and the people in North Dakota are very nice, but they talk funny.

Public restrooms are a pet peeve of mine too...and can send me spinning into a panic attack if my kids are with me...especially Reagan, the 6 year old...when we walk in, She knows the the first thing I'm going to say so she now says it for me, "I know, I know, don't touch anything."

We went into a restaurant in Boston once where I swear the bathroom was no bigger than a linen closet. You almost had to stand ON the toilet to get the door open to get out!!! Almost did me in...isn't it funny the things that freak us out! :)

Glad you made it safely :):)
