I had a great flight, even though my neighbor was chatty. She amused me, so it was good. Turns out she read Twilight and passed them on to her daughter who is now a huge fan. Yep, this conversation started because I pulled out my book. I’m reading for the fourth time and I only just discovered Twilight this year. I’m beginning to wonder if there might not really be something to the term Textually Transmitted Disease. So, yeah, good flight…

The best part of the flight was getting in 30 minutes early and then my bag coming up just as I walked up to the carousel. How fortuitous! Mom drove us home and I took a nice nap. Once again I got just three hours sleep before my flight. I really must stop doing this. I don’t always get to nap like I did today. I woke up from my nap to find dinner ready and my nieces and nephew ready to eat with me and Mom. But wait, there’s more–Birthday cake! My Mom made me a Belated Birthday Cake. Creme de Menthe Cake–my favorite! We had a blast screaming Happy Birthday at the top of our lungs. Yep, I sang to myself.

After that, Mom and I were off to Uncle J’s. I’m happy to report he’s doing quite well after last month’s quadruple bypass surgery. What a relief to finally see him for myself and give him a hug.

I’m now back in Waterford, WI. The thermometer on the car said 9°F on the way home from dropping Mom off in Antioch, IL to stay with Uncle J. Yes, nine degrees. That’s cold to anyone out here, not just to this Phoenix Girl. When did I become a Phoenix Girl? Must be some time this year. I’ve been there for 10 years now. Does something mystical happen at 10 years. Do you go native at that point? However it happened, whenever it happened, I’ll be sleeping with socks on for the next 10 days.

Tomorrow I meet a friend from high school I haven’t seen in about 20 years. That will be fun. I’m looking forward to it. Thanks, Facebook, for making this possible.

Hmm…to stay up and blog while watching DS9 or go to bed before 2a? I think we know the answer to that. Tag Surfing it is!
