Today I begin the start of my three-day trip. This will be the first time I spend the new year without my family and friends…. I am definitely sad but, sort of ready for this journey. The only upsetting thing is that I did not bring anything fancy to wear except for a black cotton mini dress and a pair of boots. I just hope it is good enough.
My day began at 4am and catching the 4:55am Marta to the airport. I worked a flight from ATL to DTW and it went really smooth. The issue was working the SRQ (Sarasota, FL) flight from Detroit and then back to Detroit. In case you did not know Sarasota is retirement center! The flight was full of elders wanting tomato juice… So much so that we ran out of the juice within both flights. When we arrived to SRQ it took very long to deplane because almost every passenger needed a wheelchair.
When we worked the SRQ flight to DTW the flight was full of gray haired people and lots of children. This was the flight of family members going to SRQ just to visit the grandparents and the grandparents flying to visit their grandchildren. I was a 2 hr flight and it was not too bad as long as we did not run out of tomato juice (no ice).
Tomorrow will is New Years Eve and it is my little bro’s birthday. I sent him a card in the mail in which he will find pretty amusing. I wish him all the best tomorrow and I hope he has a great time… Turning 19 was pretty fun for me so I am sure he will have an amazing time!
I’ll be spending my New Years Eve in Ohio. Another flight attendant working with me has invited me out on the town so I guess I will see what Ohio has to offer for the new year.
