We made it back home this afternoon. It sucked having to get up at 4am. In fact, as we were checking out, this couple (?) was just coming back from a night on the town. It was pretty funny. There we were in our jeans, coats and suitcases, half asleep, and there they were, dressed up and still raring to go.
But the good part about getting up so early was that it'll help us switch over to East Coast time, and more importantly, we were at home in Quincy by 4:30pm. That sure beats coming in the door at 11pm and having to go straight to bed. It is really nice to be home. Plus, tomorrow is President's Day so I have a day off (although it is looking like I will have many "days off" in the coming months due to the impending lay-off).
The Las Vegas airport was a disaster. I've never seen such a mess. First, Jim commented that the Las Vegas and Los Angeles airports must use the same rental car lot, because it was out in the middle of nowhere - not anywhere near the Las Vegas airport. We finally got to the actual airport at about 4:50am and already the line for Delta was about a mile long. Then there was a similarly long line at security, and finally a big crowd waiting for the shuttle-subway thing that actually took us to the "D" terminal. All in all, even though we got to the airport over 90 minutes before our flight, it was already boarding by the time we got to the gate. But we made it, and our connection in Cincinnati was much easier. We even had time for lunch.
Tomorrow is "errands" day. But I'm happy about that. It's so good to be home.
