up, up, and AWAY!!!
i had THE GREATEST weekend. i got to take .5 a day thursday and a whole day friday off! i know to most people, that is a normal occurance, but not in the media direct prison camp. it's almost unheard of. kinda like, SURE! take a day... but then, when we do, we get a guilt trip or worse. "you can't go." however, this time it worked out. i think i need more time off like this.
SO, thurs was coldplay. i have to admit, i LOVED IT. it was great. chris poked fun at himself, and had audience participation,.. i just wished it was longer! and that they played "green eyes" - i really like that song!
friday was lazy and i hung out and sweated bullets with my mom and helped her get ready for a garage sale. i stole a couple things from her as well... :) we had a nice talk.. we don't usually get to talk face to face, alone. so i cleared up a few things including, life plans, my happiness,.. how i'm doing in general. i think i'll get her a card because she really is awesome. i love me mums.
saturday i went FLYING!!!! :D craig's family owns an airport along with some other people, and have their own planes, rebuilt them etc. and i got to go up with his dad and uncle. it was great. his dad asked me a few times if i was ok, and i really was. i was completely at ease with the situation, and these planes are SMALL!!! i even got to fly, (check bottom pic! my hands are on the steering wheel or whatever you call it!) he even flew me over my house. it looked SO different f/ up in the air. i hope craig sticks with it and gets his pilot's license. all those gauges made my head spin!!!! i hope i get to go up again. it was surreal. i love new experiences.
