Today is my birthday! The boy and I took a very early flight to San Diego today. It was a day of firsts for traveling today. We had a theme-park experience at the Detroit airport. I usually fly Northwest, but today we took Delta. The walk to the Delta concourse was very entertaining. Coming down the escalator, we saw a huge blue circle on the floor. Then we could hear electronic music. It was evocative of space and underwater exploration. The walls resembled water, but there were bright colors that changed in time with the music. It was like getting out of the heat in a long theme park ride line and entering the building to begin the attraction experience. Who knew an airport could be so exciting? We took a very small plane to Cincinatti, where we walked down stairs to get off the plane instead of using a jetway. Very retro. The boy was impressed. For the flight to San Diego, we were assigned the last row, which turned out to be a bonus. The flight wasn’t completely full, and the boy and I each had three seats to ourselves. BONUS! We squandered the room by napping. “Mom, it was a day of firsts!” Indeed. Everything that could have gone wrong, didn’t go wrong. Happy Birthday to me. :o) I suppose the worst part is that the husband had to go to work, but meh. We’re together.
This is my birthday card from the boy. I was going to upload a photo of my gift, but I can’t find the husband’s USB cord. *sigh* I purposely didn’t bring any of my extra USB cords, b/c my sweetheart had one at his apartment. grr. Maybe he’ll find it, and I can upload pics tomorrow. Or I’ll get him his own USB cord.
This is my birthday present to me, bought on clearance from ABC Stitch Therapy. I’ve admired her for a long time, but she was too rich for my blood. Now she’s mine. I have plans for her, which knowing my track record, should only take a few years to finish.
Now, everyone celebrate!
