Back from the 10 day trip to Omaha, which was quite fun, but I have no pictures whatsoever of my time there. My camera never even made it out of the backpack. But I was able to spend time with friends and family, had a job interview (waiting to hear back…), saw a couple of movies, and was again reassured that moving back to Omaha is a good fit for me.
But I wanted to spend New Year’s Eve with my Bowling Green buddies, so I arranged to fly home in the afternoon. Ah, the best laid plans…I left for the Omaha airport at 11:30 AM, expecting to be in Toledo by 5:25 PM. This left ample time to drop off my things, freshen up, and head to Amy’s for the par-tay. Instead?
Left Omaha around 2:15 PM. Worried about making connecting flight, especially after we circled O’Hare for 45 minutes.
Sat in O’Hare for an hour, waiting to board. I wasn’t upset about the delay, since it made it possible for me to actually catch the flight.
Boarded the flight to Toledo at 5 PM, only to sit on the tarmac until 6:45 (when we finally got in the air). I managed to covertly text message Kirsty, who loaned me her knight in shining armor to pick me up from the airport. So while her KISA still had to wait for 20 minutes before I landed, at least he knew what was up.
We went straight to Amy’s where I immediately commenced eating a plethora of super-good food. But I was tired. So at 10 PM, I went into the office, laid down, and took a 15 minute power nap. It helped.
I’m sure eventually Kirsty will post some pics on her blog…it was a good time.
Woke up this morning a little panicked at how much has to get done in the next four months–I GRADUATE IN FOUR MONTHS!!!–but then set about making a plan to do it all, so life is good.
Happy New Year!
