lessons from the weekend.

i headed to atlanta this past weekend to visit family who was (were??) celebrating their 60th birthdays & 40th wedding anniversary. after a last-minute change of plans, i changed my plane ticket to an earlier time flying out of NC instead of WV....and in the meantime i learned a few things.

(1) no matter how fast you think you are, it is impossible to run across 3 concourses in the Charlotte airport & still make your flight in 8 minutes.

(2) the man at the gate will NOT let you on the plane after the door has closed, even if you offer to ride on the wing.

(3) Starbucks will inevitably mess up your $4.75 self-sympathy-coffee: Grande Soy Decaf No Whip No foam Pumpkin Spice Latte.

(4) you know you need to go to the gym more when you shins are sore from your 3 concourse run in the airport.

(5) 5 year-old soccer games are just about the funniest thing on the planet.

(6) coffee is good.

(7) after a 1 hour flight time took over 6 hours, sometimes it is just better to drive.

(8) people you love are always worth it.
