Random Tuesday Thoughts: SCORE!!!

My daughter flew home from Pittsburgh for Thanksgiving.  She got body scanned in Pittsburgh.  When she arrived in Philadelphia, there were protesters outside the ARRIVALS, where there is no security.  All the security is at the DEPARTURES terminal.  DUH!

One of the protesters approached her, trying to give her info on refusing the scan.  She promptly said, "Nope!  I liked it!"   This kid cracks me up!

I had to drive her back to school, near Pittsburgh.  My only worry was hitting snow as I drove over the mountain near Altoona and points west.  We did see snow on one side of the mountain that isn't exposed to direct sunlight, but the day was sunny and we had no precipitation.  Score one for me!

I didn't have to do up and back in one day.  My ex got me a room at the Marriott in Altoona (about an hour from school).  He travels a lot for work and has about a bazillion Marriott points.  I had a nice room that even had a sofa.   I enjoyed a nice quiet evening.  Another score for me!

It would have been more special if I still had kids living at home.  I get solitary a lot of the time, so this was no big deal.

I want that bed though.  I woke up with no back ache for the first time in a while!  Score!

I had to take a day off work to do this but I discovered they weren't busy and spent the better part of the day decorating.  Score another for me!

I go back to work tomorrow, after having 2 days off in a row.  Then I get my regular day off.  Score!

I think I'm randomed out.

I am so glad you didn't have to drive in snow...I hate that!! So nerve racking!! And that you didn't have to do it all in one day is a real blessing. To get a good bed is an added bonus!!! Definitely scored!!
Great RTT!!

Good for your daughter. Those protesters annoy me. That security stuff doesn't bother me either. We're talking life and death here, it isn't like the government is coming to your home and scanning you so you can come and go.

Any morning waking up without a backache is a score!
