actually, a Boeing 747 to be exact! 😉
It was a pretty early morning for me (I was up at 4) after not being able to sleep at all last night. Knowing I was leaving for Hawaii this morning gave me the same feeling Christmas Eve gave me as a kid. I was way to excited to sleep!
We are flying there on Delta, with a connecting flight in Salt Lake City, Utah. It is going to be a loooonnng day of flying. 13 hours in the air to be exact! We will get to Hawaii at 8:15p.m. Boston time (2:15 p.m. Hawaii time).
I think I will head straight to the beach for a nap and kill two birds with one stone!
Here is a map of the United States. Notice Massachusetts and Utah and Hawaii…
I have been told by several people I can not complain about the length of the flight because I am going to Hawaii. I promise, that will be the only time I mention the length of the flight (until the way home, then I will complain a lot)!
I started my morning with a banana before we left the house and then I got a Starbucks Perfect Oatmeal.
This may be the first time I have ever had hot oatmeal. It was steaming but I devoured it in like 10 seconds flat! I added the dried fruit and brown sugar to it, which gave it a sweet but tangy taste. Not bad!
I skipped a coffee because of the wishy-washy relationship I have with caffeine. Sometimes it hits me harder than a shot of tequila would, and I find myself giggling and light-headed (not a good feeling when flying). I opted for a bottle of water (which I have yet to drink because I am not a fan of airplane restrooms).
For this leg of the trip I am going to catch up on some blogging. I haven’t been a good blogger lately so I apologize for the lack of updates. Basically, I have done a lot of eating, exercising, and Bachelorette-Partying in my absence. Stay tuned for those updates. Blogging is a great way to pass the time!
I also have a few books that I can’t wait to finish/begin.
1) “The Book Thief” by Markus Zusak
2) “The Shack” by William P. Young
3) ” You’ll Never Blue Ball in this Town Again” by Heather McDonald (the comedian from Chelsea Lately!)
I made sure that I got book #3 because it seemed fun and mindless. A perfect beach read!
Have you read any of these books? What did you think?? I am a couple hundred pages into “The Book Thief” and I am hooked! I am really interested in World War II era history and it takes place across the 1930’s in Germany.
Well I am off to get going on some catch up posts. Isn’t it pretty amazing that you can get Internet access on the plane?? I mean, what did people do in the “old days” to entertain themselves on planes, haha.
Enjoy the rest of your morning!
