Sleepless drama in pouring rain....


After getting off work around 7 p.m. last night, I went home and had a light dinner consisted of veggies and rice. After dinner, I decided to pack my suitcase for travel the next day and that took longer than expected. After a while, I didn't even want to sleep because I was afraid that if I do I would miss the shuttle pickup. So instead of sleeping, I was up and working until 3:05 a.m. in the morning and got picked up by the Super Shuttle.

Once outside, I realized that it was pouring...glad I was leaving for the city during this wet weather...

The shuttle continued to pick more people up after me. There was some drama where there was some miscommunication between the shuttle service and this woman who was supposed to be picked up at a certain hour and she was in the shower when we showed up at her door. Then the drama really started when her roommate (?) started at yelling match with the driver. Hm...Did I mention this is about 3:30 a.m. in the morning? Yeah... So the driver, this other passenger, and I were all waiting outside this "shower woman's" apartment for half an hour. Kind of frustrating...

After "shower woman" finally came out of the building, she apologized to us (the other passenger and I) profusely. Then the really mad driver started slamming all the car doors very loudly and picked up three more passengers. Finally, we were on our way to the airport. The driver was driving pretty well in that pouring rain storm and personally, I was glad that the drama did not cause an accident. Whew!

Once I got to the airport, I got in line for the security and breezed through since I already checked in hours ago...

Then I brought a bagel with cream cheese because I was really hungry.

Boarded the plane around 5:45 a.m. Slept intermittently on the plane, but half way through the flight got woken up by the flight attendant asking if there's any medical personnel on board. Turns out someone got sick and needed some medical help. Everyone was super calm though, so that helped a lot.

Once we landed in Houston, we were asked to remain on the plane while the medics got to the person who got sick. Then we were off the plane.

I had to connect in Houston to New Orleans and luckily, my gate was only two steps away, so I didn't have to run across the airport. Yay.

Waited about 45 minutes and boarded the connecting flight to NOLA. Quickest plane ride ever as I blinked and we were landing...

Since I have already arranged shuttle service from airport to hotel, everything was super easy and got dropped off at hotel.

Once checked in, I showered and changed and went to dinner. Super yummy dinner.... more on that later.

I have to sleep now... night!
