I'll Be Back ....

Quick post to let you know I am alive and that we made it back from the east coast in one piece and without any major incidents.  There were some tense moments like when the pudgy guy from Philly overtook the entire arm rest and some of my seat space.  I think Mr. ESPN was afraid I might cause a scene but I remained calm and ever so slightly budged his arm out of my space and let him know by my actions he better think twice about putting it there again.  Then there was the ice cube incident.  Our plane left the gate taxied to the runway and then proceeded to go back to the gate.  Why you ask?  Oh because they said the ice was bad and they needed to get new ice.  WTH?  Would you believe it took US Airways 1 hour to bring good ice on the plane (this was after it took them 30 minutes to get someone to drive the jetway out to our plane when we flew in last week)?  So what was a 5 hr 17 minute flight turned into over 6 hours of me in the middle seat between a large carseat and pudgy Philly man ... and how was your Mother's Day?  I have to admit my little seasoned travelers did beautifully even when the portable dvd batteries died 4 hours into the flight, well other than Chatty being scared to death of the bathroom but that's a whole other story.  Visit was good.  Chatty and Grandma bawled when we left.  Interviews went well ... hopefully I will be getting an offer this week ... but who knows they seem to be taking their sweet old time.  Will post more later I need to catch up on my sleep ...
