Panama Trip, a Day Early!

Our trip was scheduled to start Monday with a flight to Fort Lauderdale, FL.

On Saturday, we realized that there might be a lot of snow where we live, so Tom was able to reschedule our flights for Sunday instead.  Really fast packing on Saturday, only 3 hours sleep on Saturday night.

Sunday was iffy, though. You wouldn’t believe it possible but I played handbells at 2 services of my church yesterday,  left after ringing at the prelude to the second service, got a cab to Reagan airport, and made it to Florida by 4:00 PM!

While still at the Fort Lauderdale airport, I took these 2 screenshots:

About 8:00 last night, we got the notification that our flight for “today” was cancelled. I think we made the right call by coming a day early!

Not snow!

Not snow!

After the hustle of getting to the airport on time, the flight was fairly calm and I could nap some.

We even got into Ft. Lauderdale about 30 minutes early.

In the airport restroom, I saw 2 young ladies dying their hair.  I guess they were away from home and maybe didn’t want their parents to know.  That’s a sight I’ve never seen before, though!

A cab ride to the hotel.  I think I fell asleep almost immediately.

I need to remember this

A friend posted this on FB recently and it’s something I’ve been thinking about for a long time, although this image says it much better than my thoughts have been.

I’m pretty sure I’m not wasting my life, but I’m also not taking time to “smell the roses” and so forth.  Much of my time seems to be taken up doing things for Cushing’s people, for church people, for my Mom.

The only things I do for ME are to nap, sing in the church choir and ring handbells.

A long, long time ago I took various classes at a local REC center and they had this sign up.

 

Life-be-in-it

 

It’s so true – this is the only one we get and mine is almost half over (*ahem*) so I need to start re-prioritizing and get out there more.

It’s time for ME!

 

Time-for-me

 

Now, I just have to figure out what I want to do…after my nap.
