After being totally stressed out for several days before leaving, I spend the night at Jeannie's and by the time i went to bed I was completely serene. A couple bottles of Stella and good conversation really helped.
The plane left on time yesterday morning, arrived in Chicago on time, and my connecting flight was also on time. It was a perfect trip. The weather didn't interfere although wind turbulence made for a bumpy ride off and on. I never mind the bumpiness, and this was no exception.
I flew 1st class to Chicago and what a difference that makes! Unfortunately, leaving early in the morning meant I didn't take advantage of their totally free beverage service. While others around me were enjoying Mimosas and the like, I stuck with coffee and water.
Breakfast was the most wonderful huge slice of quiche, with asparagus , potatos and chunks of ham, and a good sized bowl of fresh fruit. It took me a while to finish all that food but I managed! My daughter-in-law was waiting for me at the airport, and we had great conversation for the hour ride to their house. My, how my grandsons have grown, both in height and in their actions. They seem so much older and more mature, but Sandy assures me they still fight and bicker. They were ready to help me make my coffee this morning, taking turns scooping the coffee grounds into the filter.
I think I will start the day with a walk on the treadmill in the basement, and then run a couple of errands nearby. It is a beautiful sunny morning here. Thanks to all who sent me good weather and airport vibes yesterday. I couldn't have imagined a nicer trip.
