I’m on the plane. Yep, on. the. PLANE! Jan, David, and I are heading to Seattle and since Southwest offers WiFi and David is a proud A Lister, I thought I just might take this opportunity to write a quick blog about how excited I am for this trip!! It was a loooooong day but it is finally here!
Last night I was up so so late writing this article I get to submit to Frisco STYLE Magazine, doing laundry… more laundry (it had been quite a while), painting my nails (yes, it was necessary), and unpacking from my trip to Waco last weekend (I am the worst unpacking procrastinator I know). And, of course, my dinosoar computer had to break and really put a dint in my writing productivity so it was a very hectic night. I didn’t get to bed until super late and then woke up before the crack. Being the grandma I am and needing all the sleep I can get, I expected to be the ultimate Grinch when I woke up but instead I found myself full of jittery butterflies in anticipation for the trip.
It took me all morning to pack and get ready but I left the apartment just in time to run a few errands. Feeling very grownup and a bit proud of myselt, I stuffed my million pound suitcase into the trunk of my Jetta and I was off! After errand #2 I decided to stuff a few more items into my suitcase from my carry-on and guess what? The trunk wouldn’t open! In a panic, I called the VW dealership where I met Ted who taught me a complicated little raindance menouver that I now have to perform every time I want to get in my trunk. All in a morning’s work!
Work went soooo slowly today. You know what I mean… everytime I dared peek at the clock it seemed we had jumped back a minute. Then, at last, it was 3:00 — time to leave! Jan and David, all smiles, picked me up from the apartment and sped to Love Field. Apparently a flight is the only thing that is inexusable for Minchews to be late for. Don’t worry, we were 2 hours early but that gave me plenty of time to work on that article that is due soon. 🙂 I fit right in with the business men and women at the airports with their airport salad dinners, important phone conversations, and clicking laptop keys. So grownup! 😉
We have a long flight ahead of us but I’m sure it will fly by now that I’ve got the WiFi. First stop: Albuquerque. Then 3.5 more hours. Yikes. I’ll keep you updated on the trip! Dad says a good hamburger and fry joint is his first stop but I’m thinking coffee!
