Birthday Do-Over

Ever wish you could travel more?

I spent my birthday in several airports on Tuesday, on my birthday, (after an early morning keynote for HISD literacy coaches). The plane sat on the runway in Houston for 2 ½ hours and finally landed in Newark.  I had to spend 4 ½ more hours there since I missed my connection. Then boarded a plane only to be told there were 30 planes ahead of us on the jetway!!! Another hour of waiting on the plane. Sounds like a math story problem (I did finish writing a chapter of the new math book today while en route). Finally landed in Portland, Maine at 12:30 a.m., 13 hours after departure.
