Well, if you hadn't noticed, I posted 2 entries from the last couple of days to catch up with the weeks events. You may have 3 entries to read.
Back to Saturday. We hadn't really done much today. It was more about me packing and figuring out what last minute stuff I need. We hadn't eaten any lunch and it was already 3pm. Off to Olive Garden we went for a Valentine's Day meal. I couldn't believe the place was so busy for VD. We only had a half hour wait and it was worth it. After Olive Garden then off to Target for some flight snacks and a couple of other things.
We're in San Diego, the flight leaves from Los Angeles at 11:59pm. We leave San Diego at 8pm and arrive at LAX at about 10:30pm. There's nothing to do for non-ticketed passengers so Jim leaves and heads back to the RV. The flight was uneventful which was fine by me. It's the first time I've flown overnight.
2-15-09 With the Pacific to Eastern time change, I arrive at 10:30am in Fort Myers. I'm pretty tired; it was difficult to sleep with screaming children. Thanks parents.
I went to the baggage claim as indicated. I waited and waited for my suitcase. The belt stopped, my suitcase wasn't there. Several other people moved on to a different belt and I followed suit. Apparently from the time I checked the info board to the time I got to belt #1, they changed it to belt #3. Bastards.
My Dad and I got to his house and my Mom was very surprised. She was crying, hugging me tightly and shaking. I was teary-eyed too. She's been real sick for a few weeks.... I didn't know it was this bad. A few hours later, she seemed to be better with me just being here. I have that affect; what can I say.
I'm exhausted at 7:30pm, I can barely keep my eyes open so it's time for bed. I skipped a few minor details from today and as I think of them, I'll mention them along the way. Saturday and Sunday run together. It's all weird.
