It is 7:20AM local time on Tuesday morning in Jeddah Saudi Arabia, 12:20AM Tuesday morning Eastern daylight time in New Hampshire USA. I board a plane in less than 24 hours for the 13 hour, non-stop flight across the Atlantic taking me HOME for my 4 1/2 month vacation. I will go to the airport at 02:00AM Wednesday local time to begin the check in process, go through immigration and sit until the flight boards. I arrive in the USA at 11:30AM Wednesday morning Eastern Daylight time. Hopefully I can get a few hours of sleep on the plane but these flights are always crowded with lots of ill mannered, undisciplined screaming children. I'll also try to get a couple hours sleep before I leave for the airport.
After I arrive in the USA I catch another 50 minute flight at 1:45PM to an airport closer to my home where my daughter will pick me up and we will make the 1 1/2 hour drive home. I will be home before dinner. A LOOOOOOOOONG day ahead.
I have my water with me, I will walk when I get to the airport instead if sitting relaxing, I will have to run(with my luggage) to catch my connection. I order special meals for the plane instead of what they offer on the meal cart, I get diabetic meals. I do try to get up and walk up and down the isle when I can.
During the day today it's last minute cleaning, vacuuming, mopping the floors, dusting, etc. Throw last minute stuff in my suitcases.
Sammy cat is back to his normal self, all affectionate and cuddly. I think he loves staying in the house in the bedroom upstairs. Usually he is an outside cat that we feed but we didn't want any more kittens from him. We had another outside cat spayed a couple weeks ago too. That's a far cry from the 5 other cats that we can't catch, but it's something.
Anyhow, that is my day, enjoy your wonderful evening of sleep Tuesday night!
