Day 58: A l'il bit of family...

Blog Post created by SkyGirl on Nov 24, 2012

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!!!  ;-)
