Coming up with a subject is the hardest part of writing for me.

February 16, 2008

I’m sitting here at Amie’s house watching her talk about cleaning – I mean watching Amie clean. I think I live out of my car these days. It’s okay though.

I finished my trip right on schedule last night. It was a decent trip. My captain was kind of “special”. I’ll leave it at that. I can give you details later but this is public so I’ll be nice. After I went to Newport News it was on to San Antonio. I was disappointed cause no one wanted to go out that night but the other flight attendant and I went out the next morning. We walked down to the riverwalk, which wasn’t anything like I expected it to be. The part that we walked along is more like a canal than a river. The river is lined with restaurants and shops and feels very European. The weather was windy and warm and the sun was out. It was really a beautiful day to be walking around. A lot of the shops were opening as we walked through and people would be shouting across the river to each other (in a friendly way). This is another one of those cities where it’s easy to feel like you’re in a different country. We came across a place where there was kind of an amphitheater and it was set up for a wedding. It was Thursday, but it was also Valentine’s Day. Cheesy. (Side note: If I ever get married it won’t be on V’day, my birthday, Christmas or New Years.) We decided to have lunch at a Mexican restaurant. Our table was right next to the river and there were a lot of little boats going by. Most were tour boats but one was a wedding party complete with a mariachi (sp?) band – trumpet, violin, guitars and all. It was really festive though and everyone was clapping and waving at them. When we got to the airport there were some people with Ambassador buttons on handing out yellow roses to all the ladies. It made me really happy. Happy Valentine’s Day from the state of Texas :-). It was a really nice layover and I’ll add it to my list of places I try to go.

The rest of the trip was fairly uneventful. I had a lot of airport appreciation time thanks to the amazing schedulers at my amazing airline. Yesterday I had a child on my flight who screamed the whole time unless I was squatting next to her and letting her play with my id badges. I don’t know about anyone else but I’m getting too old to squat in the aisle of an airplane for long periods of time. She was quiet though which made everyone else happy. I felt like I did my good deed for the day. People thanked me when they got off the plane :-P.I’m only home for two days this weekend so I’m going to try to make the most of it.

Maybe I’ll watch Amie clean some more.
