I’m the happiest girl alive!!!

June 19, 2006

I’m sitting here in McAllen, TX having a ho-hum day and my phone rings. It was a fellow flight attendant and I almost didn’t answer cause I’ve already been on the phone a lot today. But I decided to answer anyway and I’m so glad I did cause she informed me that I have a line this month!!! For those of you who don’t know what this means, it means I’m not going to be on reserve next month. Before I go on I have to say that just because I have a line this month doesn’t mean I’ll have one next month. There’s a lot of stuff going on with our Salt Lake City base closing, but I’m so happy to have one even for a month. The money will be considerably better. The quality of life will be 1000% better. I will actually have a little control over my life now and I’m so happy. Those of you who know me well, especially those who live with me, understand how big of a deal this is. I really didn’t expect it this month either. July will be 1 year at this job. I talked to a girl the other day who’s been here 14 months and didn’t have a line. So that’s my bit of happiness. Looks like I’ll be doing back to back 2 day trips Fri-Sat, and Sun-Mon, but I should be around Saturday nights. I’m pretty pleased. This comes exactly at the right time as well. I was getting pretty discouraged lately about money and my job and my life and now I feel a little more hopeful.

I just spent about 20 minutes at the pool and I must say, it was the hottest I’ve been in a long time. I got in the water and it was hard to tell the difference between the air and the water. I’ve been coming here a couple times a month since March it seems and it’s been in the 90s every single time. The only time I felt slightly cool was when I came out of the water and wind blew on me. Other than that, not so much. So after about 20 minutes of just sweating to death I gave up. Now I’m kinda bored. It’s too hot to walk anywhere and my crew seems to have disappeared. I’m sad cause I really wish I had someone to celebrate my getting a line with. I’m almost finished with this trip though so then I can celebrate. Of all the 40 something gates ASA has one of my favorite people happened to park in the spot directly facing me last night when I was sitting in ATL waiting to go to Iowa. Good times. Life is really random like that sometimes.

This whole past year I have refused to allow myself to expect to get a line and now it has paid off perfectly. Instead of checking every month and being disappointed, I just kept doing my thing and expecting reserve and now that I finally have a line I’m completely blown away and surprised. It’s awesome and I’m not going to stop being happy about this for quite a while.
