Today I arrived at the airport clad in my Earth boots, a sweater, jacket, and a hat. I was ready to take Michigan on. It was 7:00 am, and my flight was at 5:30 pm. I was attempting to get on an earlier flight. I knew there were a few throughout the day, and I headed to standby for a flight at 8:55 am. Luckily for me, because I got to the airport so early (Jeff had a flight at 7 am) I was the first person on the standby list, and made it on the flight at 8:55 which meant I was home to MI by 4:40. Now I am sitting at home, in front of the heat shield, listening to football and uploading my “2009” photo album to facebook. Jeff is saftely back in NH, and I am snuggled up with a blanket and a heater.
There is snow on the ground here, Bananagrams on the table, and neverending tea and red wine. Here’s to the beginning of a good break. I will get to see lots of friends I have not seen in a while, and some friends that I have seen lately, all who I miss more and and see less and less. Nikki and Jon arrive home Wednesday, and then the party will pick up. For now I will enjoy being home in my living room, listening to football and Star snoring, and be happy.
