I don’t know of any songs about Virginia

October 12, 2007

I survived my six leg day. I don’t know how it happened. Everything was on schedule. We did six flights in just under twelve hours. Skies were bright, fall blue and very clear. I lost my sweater in Tulsa and was shocked by the windy, cool fall weather that greeted me in Atlanta and Asheville. The first three flights of the day were a bit tough due to screaming, crying children, but somehow I managed to be the nicest flight attendant those people have or will ever have :-D. My niceness continued through the day and I had some people actually ask for my name so they could write a letter saying how fabulous I was. I think that God has really helped give me a love for the people I work with. Before I went to work yesterday I read the John Piper daily devotional (which I never do) and it was talking about loving others. “Little children, let us stop saying we love people; let us really love them, and show it by our actions.” (1 John 3:18 LB) It’s funny cause I had a conversation about this on Sunday with my family. I guess it isn’t so much coincidence as it is reinforcement of something I need to be reminded of. I like it. I point out that I was nice, not so much to say how nice I am, but because usually after 4 legs it’s impossible for me to be anything but barely polite. It was a good day.

I’m looking forward to going home. Can’t wait to see the newlyweds and hear about the honeymoon. My Bonnie young sister will also be home which makes me le happy. It’s going to be a busy weekend but should be a lot of fun. I’m working almost all day tomorrow for a caterer I worked for once before. Not too thrilled about working at 7am on Saturday morning but I’m really happy to have the extra money right now.

I just have to add here that this hotel is really stupid. Most hotels these days have wireless internet. Even the crappy ones in Albany, GA do. So you’d think when you stay at a nice “Resort & Conference Center” it would have it. But it doesn’t. Internet connection isn’t even mentioned in the guide book. I go to the front desk and ask and they say to “just plug in”. But they don’t have any ethernet cords at the time. I go back this morning and get one and then spend the next 30 min looking for where I’m supposed to “just plug it in”. Arg… For being a business hotel it shouldn’t be this difficult. Finally, an hour later I find the plug on the back of the little box attached to the bottom of my desk. Then I plug in and see that they want to charge me $9.95 to use it… So I’m billing it to my room :-P.

I had a lot more consequential things to write about but can’t remember now. I say that a lot, I know. Did I mention that I’m ready to go home? We have one leg home that gets us into ATL around 5:40pm. Talk about efficient crew use… Don’t get me started. Other than thinking about how efficient my company is and how cold my feet are I’ve been feeling very happy lately. It feels good. I feel loved and it makes me happy to love.
