Slowly adjusting

I have slept and slept and slept this weekend and when I wasn't sleeping I was mostly laying around watching TV - it has been wonderful.

Couple of interesting things about my flight the other night I forgot to tell you. We ended up flying on the original plane that had a mechanical problem that caused the 4 hour delay. A four hour delay doesn't sound like much but when you get to the airport 4 hours early it made for a long, long night, biting nails over the whole plane thing. I was so tired when I got on that plane, I didn't have enough energy to be afraid anymore. I still rubbed the wings of my doll from Yoborobo and said my prayers taking off for like 30 minutes into the flight, but then I just tried to sleep. Well, like I said, it worked out okay. When we finally landed though, after everyone started to get up and get their stuff and get off, we had to sit back down again so police could come on board and arrest someone who wouldn't take his earphones off when the flight attendant asked - both taking off and landing. It was an exciting night after almost 3 long, long weeks - so a couple of days of sleeping was just what I needed.

I paid bills tonight and cleaned yesterday so I am poised to get back to work on Monday! Yahoo!

Oh! Dad is doing fine - body is finally cooperating better and he sounds good. He still has a bit of a long road ahead but we are over the biggest humps I think! I am so thankful.

Sounds like a great, relaxing weekend Marsha. I'm surprised you passengers didn't take the law into your own hands when the idiot with the earphones delayed you getting off the plane!

Let's hear it for being HOME, and for your Dad feeling better! :) Those flights can feel like a lifetime has passed by the time you get off, and yours sounds like it was a few lifetimes! LOL! Rest up, these trips can really take it out of you.

Hugs! xo Pam

Glad you are catching up on your sleep. It sounds like you have the same fear on flying as I have. Nothing like some good exhaustion to take care of that problem.
