It's good to be back in Boston
Well we made it back and I am now sitting at my computer at work, my view is not quite the same as at Solitude in the above picture, but you can't have everything. I am feeling quite refreshed and ready to get back into the LiveJournal scene. I wish I had a very LJesque story for you, I will tell you about the trip home and hopefully something will evolve.
Back to Boston
3:30 AM MST: I wake up in the clothes I plan on wearing all day in order to save time. My bags are packed and the adrenaline is pumping because I will be home before to long.
4:35 AM MST: We check in our baggage and this time are not charged $80 for the skis, the woman behind the counter is actually nice and asks us how the skiing was. Boy people in Utah sure are nice.
6:12 AM MST: After deicing we prepare for take off, I am stuck in the middle seat on the plane, which really sucks, since I like to look out the window. I am just amazed at how everything looks from the sky.
10:30 AM CST: Time is beginning gets one hour closer to normal. The landing in Chicago was uneventful and due to my middle seat I wasn't able to get a good view of Chi-town, I was hoping to catch a glimpse of the Sears Tower, oh well I am just going to have to check out some other time.
11:00 AM CST: After sitting at gate H16, I notice that without telling us the gate for the connecting flight has moved to K4. Thanks for the announcement American Airlines. Fortunately K4 is right next to the food court, where I purchased some nasty mexican food, why don't I learn to just stick with pizza, it was Chicago.
12:15 PM CST: Sitting in the middle seat again the pilot announces that the stairs are stuck to the plane or something and we will be delayed for 15 minutes.
3:15 PM EST: Approaching Boston I glance out the window and the first thing I recognize is the Charles River followed by a tiny sized Prudential Center. We fly out over the Atlantic and turn back towards Logan before touching down successfully in good old Massachusetts.
3:30 PM EST: My mom is standing outside the security checkpoint waiting for me. Awwwww how cute! We went down to wait for our baggage and stood there in front of the belt for a good twenty minutes before we realized our baggage arrived on an earlier flight and was sitting on the floor next to the baggage claim.
4:00 PM EST: After spending eight days with my friends we part ways, could anybody imagine spending eight days straight with me, it is amazing they were still talking to me on IM this morning.
5:00 PM EST: I finally arrive home and begin the tedious process of unpacking and all the fun that comes along with traveling. After finally showering and finally shaving again, my brother notifies me that I screwed up my laundry and all of my whites are now grey.
6:40 PM EST: Get a fresh new haircut, sticking with the Brokaw from the get go this time.
8:00 PM EST: Pizza for dinner and some catching up on the LJ's and other internet sites.
10:00 PM EST: Bed time finally after a long day.

From the dark side we can see a glow of something bright
There's much more than we see here
