Up, up and away.
I look thrilled, eh? Even my perennial eye bags had eye bags! I think I got a total hour and a half of sleep. The plane was full and since I was traveling on a space available pass (courtesy of one of my aunts), I was the last one cleared to go for the flight. I really can't complain -- for the equivalent of $50+ I got an aisle seat on a non-stop flight across the country. Oh yeah -- did you notice that I was in the last row right by the restrooms??? It was MOST pleasant after the refreshments were servered and people started lining up for the toilets. Oh well. At least I'm on vacation for the next 10 days. It will be great to visit family and friends again.
