Travel Trials

Yesterday started with plenty of time to get everything done but I should have known that things would change since my trips always begin with speeding to the airport. I planned an hour to go pick up my dog-sitter. She said she was all packed and ready. I think 2 hours had passed before I finally got back home, threw my stuff in a bag, grabbed a dog and dropped him off at an adoption event and then sped off to the airport.

I raced though the drive thru and got a few chicken sandwiches to eat later on. I parked in one of those parking lots with a shuttle bus and when I got there I was the only one there for many minutes while I wondered if anyone knew I was there. The shuttle did show up though and took me to the airport. After waiting in line to check in and then again for security, I bought an overpriced chocolate milk and ate my sandwiches.

I was hoping to have a few minutes in Denver to get some water, eat my apple and make use of the free wi-fi, but no, when I found my flight on the monitor I had only 15 minutes before it left! I had some trouble following the signs but after running across 4 moving sidewalks, though the shops and the giant circle cutout that showed the downstairs area, I made it to the gate before they closed the doors. Of course I had a window seat so I had to climb over everyone and then since I didn't have time to use the restroom, I had ask them to get up again after we took off.

My plans of downloading a movie before I left did not pan out and I didn't have time to buy new earphones. I tried listening to some music with the free earphones that they gave out but the roar of the engines it drown out. I tried to sleep but the rambunctious children in back kept things lively. We landed early so my sister wasn't there yet. Another 2 hour drive and I finally made it to my parents' house. Now the real work begins. Everything that is going to Arizona has to be loaded up by the end of the week. I need a nap.
