Headed East!

Well, we are off on another adventure! I was certainly hoping that my back would be better by now, but it is not. Between that and the stabbing pains in the back of my head and my abdomen, I pray that things will get better, as I travel on.

I certainly miss the days when I did not have cancer, and aches and pains were just aches and pains; which these probably are, but ever since I have had cancer, I always wonder what each and every little weird feeling is! I wonder if we all now worry more about our health than we used to??

Of course, I shall not allow any of this to keep me from enjoying my trip but will be certain to have it all checked out when I get home if these things persist.

So, living in Boise means few non-stop flights to anywhere. Today, we flew into San Diego, before heading east; besides adding more than an hour to our day, once we arrived in San Diego, on Southwest, we had to change planes; and gates.

No big deal, right? HA! Don't let that fool you! In San Diego, to change gates, there is a good possibility (which we had not calculated into our plans); to reach our new gate, for the second leg of our flight, we had to go out through baggage claim and BACK through security!!

Wouldn't you think that this is something that they might have told passengers? So that you do NOT buy that $5 bottle of water at the first terminal, just to leave a secure area, to enter a non-secure area, just to go right back through security?? And to make sure you have enough time to GO back through security to catch your next flight??

The least they could do is make a separate TSA Pre line or something, right? UGH! Of course, as I was "complaining" (my husband's words) to the people in front of me, in the security line, (for the second time) I was lucky enough to have them offer to take my water through with them, and their baby! lol

Apparently, if you have a baby, you can bring water through security!

So I did not lose MY $5 bottle of water, but the hubs did! lol Thank you, passengers, with the baby!!

Fortunately, today we had plenty of time, but this inconvenience will certainly steer me clear of San Diego airport in the future!  I certainly expect to change terminals when flying internationally, but NOT domestically!

At any rate, off we went, three movies worth and arrived at our destination; 15 minutes AFTER the shuttle stopped bringing people to our hotel! Perfect, right?

My thought, well, maybe we can pick up the rental car tonight instead of paying for a cab, and coming back to the airport in the morning., thus saving us time and spending $$ more wisely.

That was the ticket, and we even got a free upgrade, in the lot, to a mid-sized car; SCORE! It always pays to ask the attendant "Which car would you pick?"

We are excited to head to Ohio in the morning, to visit my cousin and his family!

It has been a LONG day.
