I'm flying, I'm really flying...Jack!

Ha ha...in case you've forgotton, this title was a Titanic reference.

Anyway, this Friday I had a flight to Ft. Lauderdale and I went all by myself. That day, I went home early from work, and packed last minute. The time flew and before I knew it, it was time to leave. I felt overwhelmed.

We got to the airport, and I was hungry but didn't have an appetite. I felt emotional...and it was time for me to go through security and say goodbye.

I went through security fine, and sat in my seat and waited. It was packed. Well, JetBlue is always packed. I waited nervously until it was time to board. I sat in seat 19D. I sat next to this woman and her child. The poor child had a tube through his head to drain liquid. And I found out soon after that they've been flying back and forth from Miami to New York for surgeries. I felt so bad.

So during the whole flight, I have to say, I did pretty well. I was quite okay. I watched tv a little, read a magazine, and towards the end I napped. I woke up in time for the plane's decent and I freshened up.

So I landed, feeling so excited for the things to come....

The walkthrough:

I was glad to point out all the things they had to touch up and finish. The house's condition was a little scary, but at least they have a couple of days to straighten up everything....

London Bridge Is Falling Down

I was saddened to hear of the bombing in London. I had fond memories of that place, and I was always thinking of returning there one day. It makes me sad to think that I will always be thinking "What if?" wherever I go. Well, one thing's for sure in this ever changing world - you are not safe anywhere. Time and unforseen occurance befalls us all. How true.

It's just unfortunate that londoners now carry the same fear we have in New York. And although we eventually get on with our lives, the fear of something happening is there - only burried in the back of our minds.
