So when I got home from my Thanksgiving Day flights, I tried to get an empty seat on a flight to Raleigh/Durham, NC, so I could spend at least a little bit of time with my youngest son (stationed at Ft. Bragg in Fayetteville) and his girlfriend. Not a single empty seat on any flight!
So I jumped in my car and drove six hours into the late night of Thanksgiving Day. I got to spend all day yesterday with my son and his girlfriend and her family, doing relaxing day-after-Thanksgiving things and eating leftovers. Woo hoo!
And, to my DELIGHT, both my son and his girlfriend have quit smoking. They were saving it as a surprise "Christmas present" for me! So, while I've been here, NOBODY has been stepping out on the deck to smoke. How cool is THAT?? Both Spencer & Evelyn said I was their inspiration (and that they didn't want to be the last of our family to still be smokers).
Right now I'm watching the Michigan/Ohio State game with my son. I'm originally from Ann Arbor and lived there from 1967-2006, so you don't have to guess who I'm rooting for! M GO BLUE!
But now I need to gear myself up for driving back to DC tonight because I fly again tomorrow (DC-San Fran- Portland). I'll be tired. But for 48 hours with family on a holiday? SOOO worth it!!!
And in ALL this time, I only had one small craving. By golly, I think I'm a real non-smoker!!! ;-)
