Well, for those of you that don’t know- I flew out this morning to meet Jamie in California. Neither one of us have been so when Jamie was scheduled to attend a training out here we decided that I would join him the week after when he was done with his class. **warning proud wife bragging** His class was long and draining but he did pass the test (it was really, REALLY hard) and then he took and passed two more tests without taking classes on them. He stumped a few of the instructors by how well he did- but you know, he is so smart he could handle it no problem!!
It was a long day of flying so we are going to go to bed shortly (it is only 5:30 here- but 8:30 at home). The flights were okay, other than the airline moving my flight up 30 minutes and not notifying me. If you don’t know (Jamie and I learned the hard way flying to Chicago over spring break) you have to check your bags 45 minutes before your plane leaves otherwise they won’t let you check them. I was there in plenty of time for my original flight but not enough for my “new” departure time. So I fussed (a rare sight/thing for me) and the guy that was helping me got his manager’s approval to check my bag anyway because it wasn’t my fault that I wasn’t here on time. I flew as Kristen Westlake, since that is how we booked my flight to begin with (we purchased tickets in January before citizenship changes). I was told that they would change it at the ticket counter- they didn’t- I just had to show my marriage license every time they checked ID (kind of a pain but I got here). I did sit next to weird and weirder on the plane to Salt Lake and next to a girl who carried on live lobsters on my way to San Jose, CA- I am not joking here folks the box said “live lobsters”, it had a handle on the top so you could carry it upright and cooking instructions. I will post pictures soon, as we are moving to a Hotel in San Fransisco tomorrow and this will be our first day of sightseeing.
love to all :)
