And this time, there is no paper to present, no conference to attend, or race to be run….just…relaxation. Not that those other trips weren’t fabulous experiences, but I am really excited to take some time and just relax. Brian and I are headed to San Juan to celebrate our fifth anniversary, and to just relax. Yay relaxation…once we get there….
Because of course it’s going to be a round of planes….in fact more planes than it took me to get to Germany. Though, I should be an old pro by now…haha. Though, I did have TSA inspect my hair, yes, you did read that right…my hair. For all the contraband I have hidden in it. And, we did find out that we didn’t have to pay to check luggage. Bonus – save $50 and not have to haul the extra carryon. Downside – we had planned to only check one, and could have brought twice as much wine. Haha.
So, LAX…awful airport. At least where food is concerned. One restaurant for the entire terminal…30 minute wait. Cause that works at an airport. But they had takeout…woohoo…or not. I’m pretty sure the pizza may have been fresh…in March…2010. Brian has a picture of it. I can’t believe we actually ate it…nor can I decide what’s worse. A stomach ache from not eating or a stomach ache from gross food. And, while being sick this week has been anything but fun, hopefully it means I’ll sleep all the way to NYC….
And JFK is freezing….it’s almost like being at the office with the crazy vent next to my desk. Good times…is it time to leave yet? There’s six or eight of us attempting to sleep while we wait for our flight. And of course that means someone brings their four year old over to ‘play’, loudly. Really? There’s nowhere else you could go? It’s a pretty big airport. Somehow the two guys in the near vicinity have managed to sleep through it. Oh wait…sleeping guy is dad…awesome. Maybe he could, I don’t know…get up and take care of his child. Or let him continue to run through the airport, that works too.
And they’re playing a song from a really old, dawn era Old Navy commercial. On that note….
Almost there…one more flight. Countdown to relaxation…six hours and counting.
