NOVEMBER 27, 2011
It left without me. Delta flight 108 left without me. According to plans, I should have been in
that airplane heading to Spain. I should have been sitting right next to my husband, Pepe.
Seat 38-A was mine you know. At least it was for a while. Then I had to cancel my ticket.
So here I am. Back home after dropping off my husband at Hartstfield International Airport.
I am back at my newly painted, emptier than ever house, with three large, perfectly shrink ed
wrapped pallets of personal belongings in the driveway still waiting to be picked up. And I am
sitting in front of my small computer screen typing words that don't come easy because I am
If only I had my old buddy, the green sofa, to sleep on... a little sleep would make the night
shorter. The bundled up blankets have made my nights eternal these past couple of weeks.
I couldn't get used to them even with Pepe by my side. Still, I feel blessed. Don't think I
am not grateful for what I have. Unlike the people whose blankets extended under Atlanta's
bridges today, my blankets are under a warm roof, I have running water and food. I just
need to rest. I am just a little sleep derprived- that's all.
I do hope Pepe has a good flight. I hope he is able to sleep too...

Photos to remember this day by...
The photo is soooo bad it's good!
LIKE I'VE DONE THIS BEFORE!
"OOK! The tahdasor!!! The tahdasor!!!"
Today was the busiest day of the Thanksgiving holiday at the ATL airport.
Maximum security. Alonso was like "Whaaaaaat?"
Did you know 1.7 MILLION people passed through Hartsfield this week?
With Yaya too....
And there was another photo with Pepe's turn, but who knows where it went!
This photo made me realize how much I have aged since Pepe's last trip nine months ago...
Ugh! I totally need a makeover!!
Pepe had just cracked a joke, and Sandra busted out laughing.
Afterward, we said goodbye.
Next time we see each other it should be at Barajas Airport, Madrid.
And it should be within a month as planned.
Curiously, I got home at the EXACT time Pepe was taking off!
