Where I have been...................

For anyone left reading this blog, no I haven't fallen off the earth. A few months ago I decided I needed a career change and went for it big time. I began the process of trying to become gainfully employed with Southwest airlines. As the good Lord above would have it I succeeded.(much to my surprise).


Needless to say it has been a long road. After all the interview process I went to training in Dallas,TX for 4 weeks in June-July and then immediately went to work. I am stationed in Baltimore and commute there.This was my view for 4 weeks out of my hotel window in Dallas. Not exciting I know but I spent most of my time at school.Luckily I had this lovely area to walk and explore. It was across the street at a beautiful hotel.
We spent several hours in a maintenance hangar going thru this jet. I cannot imagine having to learn all those buttons and controls.I can't believe how big those jet engines are. My goodness! I truly have been blessed. It's a crazy life I'm living right now and I wouldn't trade it for anything.

I have really missed everyone and hope all is well.

I was just looking at your blog the other day wondering what you've been up to. Glad it's because you had something new and interesting going on.

Good for you, Susie! I've been wondering about you, I'm glad you stopped long enough to drop us a line. I've often thought if I had to chose another career it would be a flight attendant. I love to travel and thought this would give me more opportunity to do that. Perhaps you will find some beautiful gardens during your layovers and show them on here. I look forward to hearing more.

Good for you and congratulations! I have missed you, but it appears you're well. How much digging in the dirt will you be doing now?

Love the song that starts up with your blog. I have given that CD to a few people and it is a very special CD to me.

I am hoping your new career will take us all vicariously on new trips, travels, and adventures, please?

Glad to hear about your new career Susie, and nice to visit your blog again. I have been "off and on" myself, but love hearing from everyone. God bless you.

Yes Susie, I did wonder where you'd gone but figured wherever you were you'd be enjoying life to the fullest! I've always wanted to be a flight attendant - if I ever have to get a career - I think I'd try for that one. Woderful to see you made it into your new career and wonderful to see your posts on here again!
