Happy Friday from Florida! The Hubs and I are here celebrating an early birthday with his Grandma. We were greeted by a thunderstorm and a delicious ham dinner…….the perks of southern living. I wanted to pop in with a quickie Great List for you so I can get back to my favorite Florida activity: learning recipes from Grandma. Enjoy!
1. I have to say I was appalled by the behavior of the passengers on the second leg of our trip from San Antonio to Tampa. Occasionally there is a jerky passenger on a flight, but on this flight it seemed like the majority of the passengers had no issue blatantly disrespecting the flight attendants, ignoring all seatbelt signs and warnings not to form a line at the front restroom, and overall being complete assholes to each other and to the flight crew. I could visibly see the anxiety levels rising in the flight attendants, and felt truly bad for them. Today I am grateful for the people who I surround myself with who conduct themselves with politeness, decency, and a general respect for other people even when they disagree with the rules or feel impatient. C’mon people. Remember the Golden rule? Do onto others as you would want done onto you. I’m so glad that behavior like I witnessed on this flight is an anomaly to me.
2. My in-laws dog, Lucy, has always been pretty standoffish. In fact, I have never actually pet her as she will always start to growl if I get within a foot of her. For some reason, this time around she has seemed to turn a corner. She came right up to me and let me pet her and scratch her ears. I think her new little brother, Charlie, has softened her demeanor. Having a dog around I can’t pet totally sucks, so it’s Great that we’re finally friends.
3. Thunderstorms! When The Hubs and I checked the weather report before we left we saw that it was supposed to rain the entire trip. For me, that’s a Great thing since we rarely see any rain in San Diego (especially not this time of the year), and almost never hear thunder. I’ve already taken video and photos of the rain. Yes, I’m a weather nerd.
That’s it for me today. Like I said, a quickie this Friday. Tons of family fun ahead. I hope you all have a Great weekend! Don’t forget to take a second to reflect on what’s Great in your life this week.
