It was great to be back at work for a full week. Big Boss even left on Sunday afternoon to maximize his fun on the road. He is such a hard-worker, and he is good at wearing out his pilots! This week was a blast and for the most part pretty easy. It isn't unusual for Big Boss to want to fly seven or eight times a day, from 7:00 AM to well past 3:00 AM the next morning. I guess you could say this week was pretty easy because I only had one really early morning. Most nights, as usual, were very late. I crawled into bed in Bedford (near Boston) on Sunday night at 3:30 AM.
Aside from the exciting maintenance dilemma in Philly, we had a great week. I eventually got over being sick, but my ears still hurt when we landed back in Phoenix late Friday night. What a baby I am! I hate flying when I'm sick, but if I don't go, neither can they! It's hard to say no when they are relying on me to accomplish their work. And when you haven't had a full week of work in a few weeks, it's a treat to be out there again (sick or not)!
We flew all over the East Coast, visiting the Mini Bosses in each region we stopped. My company employs a lot of good people, and I truly enjoy not only flying the same people around, but also visiting the same people over the course of a week. We hit several cities in several states. Some a few times! And I even made it home in time to enjoy a weekend of graduation festivities with my husband.
