Well, I have made the first leg of my journey home. I bet you're all wondering what on earth I'm doing posting right now. Welll... It's 11:45 PM here in Vegas and my flight doesn't leave for 2 hours. Yay. So, I'm hanging out at the USO.

Did you know Vegas had a USO? I didn't. Joe told me that they might, but I wasn't sure. When I finally got to the correct terminal, checked in and headed up the escalator I saw "USO!" Is it totally weird that I was about 9 kinds of excited? I walked in and man - it is nice in here!!! 3 flat screens, super nice bathrooms, a snack bar, computers for your use and it looks like there's a TV room in here too. I'm in the "snack area" playing online and listening to another milspouse chat it up with the snack bar lady. =) The workers here are super friendly. I appreciate that so much.

My flight from Hawaii to Vegas was not very fun... I about barfed while we were landing. Most of you probably don't know this, but it's been raining like crazy for the last few days in Hawaii. California and other parts of the west coast have experienced our little storm too. What does this mean for flying? Turbulence. *sigh* I get airsick. Luckily, Joe experienced this before I did so I was prepared with dramamine. ;-) I still felt bad for him though. 

During my flight there were no movies. =( And I sat in a row between two babies... Two screaming babies. I think I slept for about an hour and read for the rest of the 6ish hour flight. Yay me. I loved that most people kept asking me how my visit was. Ha. I live in Hawaii! =P The lady who sat next to me literally spent about 5 hours on her little netbook playing what used to be called Bejewled. Not even kidding. She turned it off to get up to go to the bathroom and then read for a while... Oh, and she was reading a book in Japanese. Weird!

I did get fed, so I can't complain too much. I just wish it hadn't been such a bumpy ride! I was ok for the first half of the flight, but the second half wasn't so great. Probably because my dramamine was wearing off. 

Well, I'm sure 90% of this post doesn't make sense because I'm tired so I'm just going to end it here. I'm going to try to post as much as I can while I'm home but I make no promises!!!


  1. Have fun! Air sickness is yucky. I get SO sick and Dramamine does nothing for me.

  2. I hope you thought of me when you realized she was reading a book in Japanese! Have fun with the family....and less than a month until I'm hanging out in Hawaii with you =)

  3. Hope your next flight is much smoother and maybe you have a better seat...pray for an exit row! :) Then you know there will be no kiddos!

  4. I always forget about the USO, I have used it before, but not recently! Hope you have a wonderful Christmas, and the rest of your travels are safe! :)

  5. I'm glad you've made it that far! Good luck on the rest of the way!
