Flying out

I flew out of West Palm Beach today at 5:45PM bound for San Jose. The ride is smooth and the sunset out the window was beautiful. We flew right over our house on the way out and my heart skipped a beat when I thought of leaving Shan and John behind. I will have a terribly hard time being away from them for 10 days. On the positive side I have been missing Max and Charlie like crazy and seeing them all weekend will be really special.

Charlie was selected to be on the All Star soccer team at the end of his season last weekend and he’s really excited about it. I feel really good for him – there’s nothing like getting something right and being acknowledged for it. I’ll take Charlie and Max to Charlie’s game this Saturday and then a celebratory picnic on Sunday.

I took some photos of the sunset out of the airplane window and I will be sure to post them when I get access to a card reader.

Next stop is DFW and then on to San Jose after a one hour layover.

Thanks God I have something to write with (this is being thumb typed on my BlackBerry). My laptop is so old and beat up that my battery doesn’t work so I stowed the laptop in my luggage hoping someone will steal it. Just kidding – I love my old laptop – she’s been through the shit with me. The laptop is a modern day equivalent to the trusty sword.
