Home sweet home!

Friday was a good day because I got to come home!  But it was a long day of travel… 

Our boss left on a redeye flight Thursday night for Pennsylvania.  The other three of us met in the hotel lobby two hours prior to departure and checked out.  Then we drug our luggage around and toured the casino because I am “directionally challenged.”  🙄

Once we found the exit and took a taxi to the airport,  we checked in and did the security thing, boarded on time and started to taxi down the runway when the pilot suddenly let off the throttle.  YIKES!  Evidently a  light came on—something to do with a wheel not working—so we returned to the gate and waited while the mechanics did their thing.

We took off an hour late.  It was raining when we landed in Wichita, and rained off/on my entire drive home.  I was exhausted.  Husband and I went out to eat, and I was in bed at 7:30!  I slept for 10 hours.  My real work starts Monday—putting together all of our notes into a report about the conference. 

I came home with money still in my pocket (not everyone can say that after Vegas), and our plane didn’t crash and burn.  So all in all, it was a good week.  🙂

    Sorry, Karen. Can’t tell you what I’m writing about. It’s–ummm, top secret government work. If I tell you, I’ll have to chop you into little pieces and use you for catfish bait! 🙂

    I emailed you from Vegas about your September trip. Did ya get it?
