Home Sweet Home

I spent the last two weeks in Baltimore, minus the weekend, and I am finally home for good and I can't tell you how glad I am to finally sleep in my own bed tonight!

I was seated next to two young girls on the plane that were about 16 or 17. They were so cute. They felt the need to tell me that they just left New York and DC. This was their first time on a plane. They kept asking me questions about what to expect. "Can we use our phones?" "Can we use our iPods?" "Are we starting to go down now?" They were too cute.

They are from a very small town in Georgia with a population of 2000 and NY and DC was just a bit too much for them and they were glad to be getting back to their simple, small town lives.

The cute meter went off the charts when the one sitting next to me stated that she couldn't wait to get home to see her father. He just got home after spending a year in Afghanistan. She only spent 1 day with him before she had to go out of town. Aaaawwwww.

In stark contrast, there was this little kid seated behind me that kept kicking my chair. I wanted to pop him upside his head. Don't get it twisted, I will fight a kid.

Some kids are cute on a plane, but some are definitely NOT. I hope that girl has a wonderful reunion with her dad.

Aaw, such cute girls ! I hate flying with little kids though, they scream and kick and I have no patience.

Crying babies and insolent brats are not good flying companions...and I'm terribly sorry but if my Dad had just come home from a year in a war zone, no amount of adventures in the city could entice me away after a day with him...but I guess the kids of today don't think that way...and welcome home!

lol. I remember my first time on a plane. I was absolutely terrified but you get used to these things. I also like seeing flying first timers, brings back memories.
