Catching up

I did end up going on the tour of the USS Midway after all - Wednesday afternoon; it was very interesting - not sure how G could stand living on board one of those things for 5 years!! But, very cool nonetheless... a veritable floating city to be sure.

I also got to hang out with Cheer a little more, and Sweetheart came along as well; we ended up sitting at Starbucks, just chatting; Cheer dropped me back at my hotel at about 7pm and I went to bed shortly thereafter - I was SO bushed!!

My plane left at 9:45am Tuesday morning; the flights were booked which was unpleasant enough, but then I had 2 obnoxious kids and their apathetic mother sitting in the row in front of me on the flight from Dallas to RDU, which was damn near unbearable. I had to ask the woman to ask her daughter to stop slamming back in the seat as it was shaking my tray to hard I couldn't leave the drink on it!! Pathetic, really, what some parents will let kids get away with in public!

We got in about 8:20 and B picked me up, so we got home by about 9:30. He let me sleep in Wednesday morning and I didn't drag out until nearly 10am!! I only had a few hours to pack and pay bills before heading out for drill weekend... 4 more days and I'll be back home - again!
