I guess it’s time to get this puppy rolling. I’m finally home at a somewhat reasonable time tonight after 4 days of catching up back at work. So, on with the show…
New Year’s Eve:
I was able to wrap everything up at work and get home by 4:30 p.m. Boy, there’s no better feeling than having EVERYTHING caught up when you leave on vacation! :happy: No worries about pending projects, reports or major things waiting your return. Great!
Our Jet Blue flight was scheduled to leave Long Beach at 9:20 p.m., so we hung out, watched some football and muched on snacks until it was time to go. Got to the airport, checked in, bought a book and still had plenty of time left.
We finally boarded, took off at 10:00 p.m. and were on our way to WDW! Got to ring in the New Year thanks to the Fox broadcast on Direct TV, took about 4 or 5 30-45 minute naps (I cannot sleep on red-eyes), and bingo we’re landing in Boston. Although it was 6:30 a.m. in Beantown, it still felt like 3:30 a.m. west coast time. Still, we were hungry so we had breakfast at the Johnny Rocket’s in Logan. I was dying for a cheeseburger, but all we could get was breakfast.
Our connecting flight to Orlando was scheduled to depart at 8:40 a.m., but was delayed until 10:40 a.m. due to mechanical issues. Not a bad thing as I was able to snag one of the cool rocking chairs near our gate and get a GOOD couple hours of sleep :laugh:.
