Vacation is over. I’m on my way home today. I was worried about checking my bag. It seemed to be extremely heavy. I thought that it was going to be over the 50lb limit. I had no scale to measure it with. Luckily, when I weighed it at the airport, it only weighed 47lbs. Then, I surprisingly went straight through security in the airport without getting stopped by anyone.

I’m early for my flight. I would rather be early than late. I sit down near my gate but far enough away so I’m basically alone. I’m about to be on a 6 hour flight with people all around me. I’ve decided to have as much alone time as possible. I found a group of chairs up against a wall that are off on their own with no one in them. Granted, they are about 30 feet away from the restrooms, but at least no one is coming to sit near me and start a conversation.

I had a great vacation, and I don’t want to leave, however; at the same time, I’m really looking forward to going home. The thing that I really like about this vacation, and pretty much any vacation, is the time I get to spend with my mom. Since she lives so far way from me (about 2,500 miles), I only get to see her about 2 or 3 times a year. Leaving her is hard, but going back home to my husband is good.

  1. In relation to your sitting at the Airport alone, I do much the same thing. I can’t take crowds of people for very long. After awhile, I have to get away from them and be by myself, because I can be a loner when necessary. I don’t hate people, but they just get to me. Sitting somewhere alone and just doing “people watching” is a favorite past time of mine. If someone comes and sit’s down beside me, I don’t mind but if they are a “nit-wit” I’ll get up and leave or tell them to leave me alone. Going places on my own is a common practice for me. I’m somewhat used to it. I can find my way around without much help. Guess I got this from serving in the US Navy years ago.
