San Francisco and Omaha

Last weekend I was so fortunate to get a reserve trip to San Francisco and Omaha. Two cities I had never overnighted in.Our hotel was on the Bay in San Francisco. There was a walking trail right beside it that I had to get out on. It was a picture perfect day. Flowers there are gorgeous. This Princess Plant (Tibouchina) was gigantic and so pretty. This was my view from my hotel in Omaha. I had no clue this was such a nice city. They have an area called "The Market" which is a must for visitors. Great shops and restaurants along with brick paved streets. They also have bronze statues thru out town that are really pretty. But I think the best part of my trip was getting to work with these two ladies. I actually graduated training with one of them. We laughed and had a great time. Hope to work with them again some time soon.

Well that's it for this week. Unfortunately I am at home with a stomach bug and had to call in sick.

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.
