My nephew Tim is two today! Happy Birthday, Tim! Yay!
Well, my trip was pretty good. Denis dropped me off at the airport before he went to work, which worked out really well because the line to get boarding passes was extremely long. I mean, it was really, really long – “you’re on Candid Camera” long. Anyway, because I was so early, it didn’t matter that I stood in line for an hour to get my boarding pass. Except for my back hurting.
Security was okay. I found out my back brace has metal in it. And I found out that I don’t care if I drop my pants in front of TSA people in order to put my back brace back on.
I was at the gate an hour before my flight, so I laid down on the floor. It made my back feel good. I fell asleep. When I woke, there were lots of people around. I stayed on the floor until the last minute, then boarded the plane.
Sitting didn’t hurt my back, but it made it stiff. No turbulence to speak of… easy connection in Minneapolis… short flight to Lincoln. Thank goodness for Beth’s super-strong mom arms; she could help me with my suitcase. And thanks to everybody who prayed for me. It was a very good day.
This morning I’ll be taking it easy on Lloyd and Lauren’s couch, then I’ll meet up with my family in the afternoon. Let the Nebraska Visit begin!
