I’m Home, But…

I had a great trip. I can’t begin to describe how right it felt being by Tom’s side for this trip. It was hard to say goodbye at the airport. He was heading to New York and I’m heading home to Washington. My heart is with him. Believe it or not his plane was delayed for an hour and a half. Unfortunately he was on the plane for that time instead of being with me in the terminal. My plane didn’t leave for a few hours. Good news is my plane did take off on time. The one is Salt Lake City did also. I had a very short window to get to the second plane. Here’s the problem with that…I’m home but my luggage isn’t. I couldn’t believe it. I wanted to kick myself for not doing a carry on. Now a days it’s so hard because you can’t take liquids over 3 ounces and it has to fit into a quart size bag. I just want to say that I’m not letting this ruin my whole trip. The trip was very good.

Tuesday was a good day. We joined the men at the board meeting in the morning and then after lunch we went shopping. Yeah! Nothing bonds women together more than shopping. One of the gals needed some shoes, so we looked for shoes. I came away with a $65 pair of shoes on sale for $21.oo…score! They are comfortable and I can wear them when I’m teaching. I had planned on posting a picture of them, but they are being held hostage by Delta Airlines.

We had dinner at a Mexican Restaurant called La Hacienda Ranch in Colleyville. Check them out at laharanch.com. The food was yummy. They make a delicious tableside guacamole. I love avocados in any form. They are known for two things: 1. the founder Mariano Martinez invented the frozen Margarita machine and 2. George Bush ate there.

It was nice getting to know everyone on the board and put faces to names. There is the annual Association of Bridge Churches meeting coming up in January. I’m looking forward to seeing all of them again.

Well - at least you're home without your luggage and not stuck in a hotel without luggage! Better to happen on this end of the trip.

Sounds like a lovely trip. Too bad you couldn't go on to New York with Tom.
