I Had a Dream!

Last night I had a dream. I was a flight attendant on one of those puddle jumpers from San Diego to LA, and I was demonstrating how to insert the seat belt into the buckle. Only I did it over and over again. When I got out of bed this morning, I reached over to “unbuckle” my seat belt!

In the last 24 hours, I’ve been in the skies and on the highways and byways (traveling on the New Jersey Turnpike to Merck Pharmaceuticals). Last night, I fell asleep with my laptop on my lap and woke up with “it” on the floor (thank goodness for plush carpeting).

This morning, I’m packing for a retreat this weekend in North East, Maryland.
Yesterday, I kept asking my hubby, “What day is it?” He assured me that it was Wednesday. I still wasn’t convinced. I managed to be one hour early at Merck Pharmaceuticals before my presentation, “Care to be Aware.” When I glanced down at my watch, it was 9:00 a.m.; in reality, it was 12 noon!

But today, I woke up on the right side of the bed and I know what day it is and I’m back on track (sort of). It’s my catch-up day before I head off again. I have a newfound appreciation for those who jet through time zones on a regular basis (maybe I was having sympathy pains for flight attendants).

But I’m still confused why it’s necessary to show passengers how to put their seat belts in the buckle (isn't it obvious?).

When I grow up I want to be a flight attendant!

I'm so glad it's morning; I was tired of putting on my seat belt. LOL!

Can you believe we need instructions on that; it cracks me up. I have a hard time not giggling through the entire demonstration and usually hide myself behind a book.

The oxgen mask is an entirely different story for another blog!

Thanks for your prayers; I truly appreciate it!

I have a new friend that travels all the time. At first I didn't know that she was a flight attendent and one day I asked how she could afford all those flights. When she told me I felt so foolish.

I don't know why they show people how to use a seatbelt and I also wonder why they no longer tell you about the air sickness bag. I think the flights are getting rougher these days. I will tell the wedding story soon. Stay tuned.

I couldn't find an air sickness bag on any of my flights. I wonder if that is a new cost-cutting measure?!? But the way they clean planes these days (in 30 seconds flat), I'm surprised we don't find other things hidden between the seats.

I'll wait patiently for your wedding story! :-)
