    in the airport
    At Logan, they had wireless, but I had to pay $8 for "the day." Who the hell spends "the day" in an airport? We had 45 minutes until boarding. So no way.

    Today, however, at this odd ball dinky airport in Long Beach, CA, Jet Blue has provided us with FREE wireless. And our shuttle brought us to the airport like 400 hours early, so I have time to enjoy the free-ness.

    Beloved is reading a newspaper, and the girls are ..... getting hyper. They are playing with the monkeys we won on Paradise Pier at the new park near Disneyland called California Adventure. The Pier is set up like a carnival, with rides and games. The one that us girls won was a pitching one - we had to throw a ball and knock down some little wooden dude. I can't believe I did it. Julez did it first, and that wasn't a surprise. But ME doing it was a surprise. She did NOT get her athleticism from me. It came from the other side of the tree.

    The California Adventure park is sort of fun, and is a nice little "break" - but we didn't spend a whole day there. We spent parts of 2 days. Disneyland is definitely still the main attraction.

    I had thought this would be our last trip. The girls are 8 and 10, and it seems that there is so much in the world to explore and visit, why keep spending so many trips going to Disneyland? (This was our second .... well, it was the girls' third, b/c the Ex and I took them with his parents when they were 1.5 and 3.) But it turns out we do want to go again. There are roller coasters and things that they don't feel ready to do yet, but want to do in the future. It also is fun to revisit a good time had before.

    So we're thinking of going again in 3 years. That's three years for other vacations. The Grand Canyon is the one I'm most wanting to do. I would also like to do Yosemite. And eventually (soon, me thinks), they'll be ready to bring out of the country.

    My plane ride will be spent reading for Comparative Law. I have a lot of articles to read for class, then quite a few to look through for the purposes of my paper for this quarter. It is 20-25 pages, and will have SOMETHING to do with Afghanistan. Not exactly sure what yet. something to do with the speedy implementation of a democratic system without any supporting education or preparation or really anything. Or perhaps it will be about the flourishing market system and its impact on the crops that Afghanistan is known for. I don't know. That's why I have to look at the articles.

    We land at 6:22 p.m., Boston time. I need to somehow get the kids in bed by 9 p.m., even though it will feel like 6 p.m. to them. Hopefully, the fact that they went to sleep last night at 1:15 a.m. and got up today at 7 a.m. will make this a possibility. I doubt, however, that we can keep Julez awake on the airplane. So she won't be as exhausted as is necessary for this to work. Emz never sleeps on planes, and she has school work to do - like her momma.
