Home, Safe, Late, and Tired

Just a brief post tonight to let everyone out there in Blogger Land to know I've made it home from my March Break trip.

I'll update sometime later in the week with details of my last few days and photos.

Saturday night I returned my rental car... I have to make a phone call to straighten out some charges with the company tomorrow (oh joy). When I went to check in, my suitcase (no laughing Kathy!) was over the 50 lbs. limit by 6lbs! So I had to drop some weight. I don't understand what the difference is... I just took some stuff out of my checked luggage and put it in my carry on luggage. So I don't get it... I'm still taking the same amount of stuff on the plane just distributed differently.

My first flight San Diego-Chicago was 10 minutes later than scheduled. I dozed through that flight, woken up by the occasional bit of turbulence. I landed in Chicago to find out my 6:44am flight to Syracuse was now leaving at 9:44 am! I also had to go from one end of the planet to the other! Once again more dozing as I waited for my flight, and changed gates 3 times! Finally up in the air, and on my last leg home! I landed in Syracuse shortly after 12pm... we sat on the tarmac for 45 minutes! Boy did I want off of that plane!

I finally got home around dinner time tonight. I'm happy to be home, but it was a great trip!

I was cleaning out my inbox and found an SBQ I haven't answered yet.

Q : Do you use your needle, a seam ripper, or something else when you have to frog stitches? Why do you use the method that you do?

A : It really depends on how much frogging I have to do. If its just a few stitches, I just my needle to pull those stitches out. If its a lot I'll very carefully use my finest pointed scissors and cut both halfs of the stitch from the top of the fabric. Sometimes I'll use my needle and pull those cut stitches out from the back of the fabric, or I'll get my lint roller out and pull the cut stitches out that way.
