Back Home & Not so Anxious for the Next Trip

I got home last night from Virginia. Here's what finally happened....
On Saturday, Jenna tried flight after flight, both from the Norfolk Airport and from the Newport News airport. Flight after flight was full.
So at the end of Saturday night, she called to announce she was giving up and going home, and she asked me to come stay with her in Norfolk for a couple of days.
My family knows that going to Denver doesn't thrill me much- my brother is no longer there and it hurts me to face the fact. So going to Norfolk instead was a great alternative.
On Saturday morning, Gil was able to catch his flight to Denver- yay! Much easier for 1 non-rev to catch a plane than for 3 to do so.
And on Monday morning, I took myself to the airport and got on a plane.
Jenn picked me up and we went to AJ Gators to eat. Had a nice lunch then went to her apt. to move in my little suitcase full of stuff.
Took a little nap on the floor over there, and then we went out to eat (again) this time at a terrible Mexican food restaurant since the one we were hoping for was closed for renovations.
Next day, she and I went out to the fancy mall so I could buy some mascara and I bought her a couple of outfits.
That night I met Nico, the young man she's dating, and she cooked dinner for us both.
Oh, I was the dishwasher while I was staying there.
Then yesterday morning, she took me back to the airport where the 1st flight was full. My S2 status allowed me to make the 2nd flight out. In Atlanta, a thunderstorm forced our airplane to circle for 45 minutes until we were able to land.
I was home by 7:30 pm.
Slept like a baby last night.
It was a nice little visit with my daughter, just the right amount of time and the price was right.
Gil is still fishing in Colorado and is due home some time tomorrow (Friday).
It's hot and dreadfully humid here in Georgia. Nasty.
