Trip to GA

Last weekend I took a special trip all by myself to GA to visit with my best friend that I haven't seen in 6 years and to meet her children. I was a little nervous flying alone for the first time in 14 years. Once I saw how easy it was in Raleigh's airport it made me feel better. The flight there was a little bumpy and I felt every turn and movement, Which scarred the life out of me. The landing was bumpy but I survived. I thought piece of cake till I got into Atlanta, GA airport. Then I started to panic. It was so large and there was a subway to ride. I was so confused and lost. I had no idea that you were supposed to ride the train to baggage claim area. After about 20 mins and talking to Teresa I finally got on the train and figured I would figure it out as I went. Finally I got to where I should be and ended up walking right past Angela and her kids. We finally got my luggage and off to her house we went.

It was a great visit. We mostly hung out since it rained and stormed the entire weekend. But that fine with me. I was just so happy to be there. The kids were great and funny. Poor Angela had to work 3rd shift Sat. night so while she was taking a nap and then off to work , the kids and I cleaned the apartment. Her kids are such great helpers. I could not get them to stop cleaning. Finally at 1130pm I had to make them stop and rest before bed. Boy did they sleep good. I had to wake them at 930am to get ready to go back to the airport. I had a great flight home even though it was raining. The landing was so much smother, even in the rain. I was so excited. I even got to eat a bag of Middlesworth BBQ chips. They are a favorite in Pa. I haven't had them in over 2 years. Boy were they good.

I was excited to see my family but I wish I had more time with Angela and her kids. Next it is to get her and the kids to come here to visit and meet my family.
