After what seemed like way too short of a week, yesterday we said goodbye to Aaron, Elisa, Kayla, and Ashlyn as they headed home to Orlando. Such a great week…thank you guys for spending your timeshare with us! Not long after, Mom and Dad dropped Shannon and I at the airport as well to fly back home to Rochester.
I used to look forward to flying, but lately I pretty much dread it. On Airtran, the seat space is so tight already, so when the person in front of you tips their chair back it feels like a straight jacket. I never tip my seat back because I feel guilty for violating the space of the person behind me…I’ve always viewed it as a courtesy, or unwritten rule. However, plenty of people do it. This led me to the following poll.
Late last night we arrived in Rochester at about 12:30 AM where Ryan picked us up at the airport. Still on a Pacific time schedule, Shannon and I were energetic and ready for some dinner. We convinced Ryan to stop by Jeremiah’s Tavern for some wings…didn’t take too much convincing. When we found out their kitchen was closed, we headed down Monroe Ave. to Acme, our old neighborhood hangout. Back when we lived on Rowley St their giant slice of pizza was one of our staples. Jim W., you know their pizza is the best!
Then at about 2:00 in the morning, we made the drive home to Pultneyville. After being away for over a month, the house looked cold and lonely with no lights, heat, and covered in snow. We traipsed through at least a couple of feet of snow to get to the door. Still, it’s great to be home sleeping in our own bed and surrounded by all of the tokens of our life (or stuff)!
