My Week in El Paso

The morning on the way to the airport the morning of the flight

             Hello and Happy Winter. Can you hardly believe it's been this long?? I can boy has my life changed basically in the wink or an eye.....no not really but it sure has been a long wild ride.....but I can sum it up in a few words. I moved to Michigan, I sold my farm and now I am enjoying the great white north for sure. Everyday even in the bitter cold and when I say bitter cold I mean those negative temperatures. I was used to cold and wet in North Carolina but Oh my cold in Michigan when the wind is blowing and the negative tempatures, It cuts ya just like a knife. BRRRR!! Just thinking of it. The heat is warm so warm I am basically living in tank tops in the house, no joke! Anyway I think I have summed up my life on the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Love N IT!! 

           The picture is from the other day when I left for the airport on Friday morning of the 18th of February. I never slept that night. We had to be at the airport no later than 5am well the Suburban wouldn't start that morning it was -6 and the wind was blowing.....so Bruce took the air filter off and jumped the ol" girl he calls her baby and said "You can do it baby" as he shot the ether in the engine she started up. It was now a wee bit after 4 am and I was like Ah? Bruce I need to be there at 5 am and we live 80 miles from Green Bay. So there are quite a few folks on the road at that time due to milkers and farm workers. Needless to say we arrived at 5:20 am I basically ran in and made it for TSA and onto the plane. YES! Now we had to de-ice the plane and that seemed like forever and then a passenger after we are about to taxi unto the runway decided that she needed off the plane. My anxiety was running wild and I completely understood her need (although I have no idea of her need) I just assumed with the wait and the extra time that's what I was going thru. So we taxied back to the gate off she went and then we were off into the air. We arrived in Chicago pretty fast and I got out of the plane and found my gate. It was a really long walk I was getting my steps in for the day for sure. My flight got moved three times in the layover....I was beginning to think El Paso was not happening. I boarded the plane finally and had a nice flight to El Paso....a little turbulence but hey its expected. 

Well it warmed up to 2 degrees.......we never took flight until 6:37 am
Yep that's my computer and the stickers are Mindy Lacefield 

We arrived safely in Chicago and everyone went their separate ways. I was glad to finally sit once I arrived at my gate. The flight was changed three times while I was sitting patiently. I am not a traveler so I basically have no clue as to why.......come to find out they had to get a plane from Madison Wisconsin so it was arriving later than expected. Finally we board the plane it was so much warmer in Chicago so I was getting hot in my clothes.....which btw I froze in my own car as we drove to the Green Bay Wisconsin airport. I was so cold Bruce gave me his coat too. As we all were in line waiting to board the plane.....I was freezing again...haha. 

Wooohooo I was glad to get on the plane headed to El Paso. The flight was good there was a time of turbulence, but expected. I listened to my music with my headphones. I happened to have my headphones only because Cooper had me order them for him and then he said "he made a mistake" so I said I would take them. Worked out well for me....

El Paso welcome to the desert. It took me awhile to get off my back was in a bind and I kinda hung back so I could get off
