Since the Atlanta Marta does not run until 6am on weekends I had to leave my crash pad to sleep at the airport so I could report for work at 6:30am. As I arrived to the airport on Christmas Eve I already knew it was going to be an extremely long tireless day. Of course I did not sleep at all at the airport. Who can sleep when there are other flight attendants snoring and the lighting in the crew lounge is so bright!
5:30am comes along and I get dressed and ready to take on this day. Anxious to get to Kentucky so I can sleep away Christmas eve. The flights were not as full and everyone was actually in the Christmas spirit, not one Grinch on the plane. At 2pm we finally arrive into Kentucky where I am destined to spend my Christmas eve (not by choice).
So this Christmas eve I have spent it eating Ramon Noodles, cookies, having a few drinks and watching every single episode of Gossip Girl. I did take a walk around the hotel because they have decorated it to look like Santa’s factory and Gingerbread house.
I Oovo’d with my family in New York and am waiting until midnight so we can Skype and I can see what Santa (me) got them for Christmas. I do it because I love my family and would do anything for them. I do it because I love to see people’s reactions when they open a gift and it is something that they love. I am not trying to toot my horn but, I am a pretty good gift giver. Even a card always brings a smile to anyone’s face.
If I could I would be home spending Christmas with my family but unfortunately these are the cards I am dealt with and sometimes you have to play the game enough to win it. So far it is not going my way but that is another blog for another day.
Merry Christmas Eve to all and until tomorrow!
