I hope you had a great Halloween Weekend!
To some who think they get an extra hour of sleep, there are others who count on that extra hour to work. I found myself, once again, writing at the end of a very long week. Last Sunday after arriving on a flight from Seoul Korea, I burned the midnight oil to get my statistics homework complete.
The week following was filled with homework, catching up on life necessities, and then fate through some snags on Thursday. Within an hour and a half, my phone blacked out and died. I rushed home and showered, and off to get a new phone but car screeched when I started it (three times). Fan belt I think. My husband was out of town. Seattle's wrath fell from the sky. I had to be at my granddaughter's school with this car for an event in 45 minutes!
I took the summer car to get a new phone. When I returned, I said a little prayer before the fourth attempt at starting the suburban, and she started up. A 12% charged phone kept me security if I broke down along the way. I made it to the event. At 630 I headed home, did quick change and my Mom took me to the airport at 7 pm. Off to Vegas. A quick nap in Vegas and I got the last seat to Austin then next morning. Dick joined us on Saturday after his Breeders Cup Vegas adventures.
A fun night of trick or treating with the little ones Friday, some great baby time, and the weekend was cut short as non-reving after a formula-one weekend was not going to happen on Monday. I wallet-whipped a couple tickets on Alaska for a Sunday night flight.
Homework never ends. Sunday morning I finished a first edit on my paper around 0100. 0530 brought kids who didn't know they were getting another hour of sleep awake. The day began. Then, while my hubby was out golfing with our son-in-law, and my daughter and granddaughter were napping, I was sitting at a miniature table having lunch with a three-year-old. Peanut butter and jelly and fresh fruit, with Blues Clues on the television for him. For me.... a laptop, as I edited my human factors homework (multi-tasking at its best) and submitted before I headed out of town, homeward bound.
This week there are some amazing events coming up.
Blogging in Formation (BIF) started off a week of gratitude. I'm believing that pilots are plane people who give back. So stay tuned to see what the BIF team is doing.
The week ahead:
- Finishing motivation book: Flight To Success: How to be the Captain of Your Life.
- Interview with Christina for Aviation History Month to be aired Nov 14th.
- Friday and Saturday: A date with my eldest daughter and Oprah!
- Saturday Night: Aviation High School Auction! I've selected 8 incredible individuals and invited them to dinner as our guests to thank them for giving back to the industry.
- Sunday: Cramming to get final papers in on time.
We missed our little Bend Trick or Treaters this Halloween
But will see them in two weeks!
Enjoy the journey!
