I am taking my niece Gen to LA Wednesday morning. We leave Logan at 7 am. Whose idea was that? Oh, I made the reservation? Umm, well still Jen & Grace didn't stop me....makes them somewhat responsible.
Gen is going to Perth, Australia to study a semester abroad. When this first came up, Grace told me to arrange her flights. But Grace was worried about the whole switching of airplanes and carriers in LA. So I said I'd go. Sounded like fun.
So we arrive in LA at 10:30 am local time. We are staying at the Crowne Plaza LAX. We have the rest of Wednesday and nearly all of Thursday to hang, see, do.
At 10 pm Thursday night I put Gen on a Quantas flight and send her away until Thanksgiving. It's a great opportunity and we are all very happy for her....but geez! That's a long time, lol.
Then Friday morning I fly back to Boston.
While we are there we will take the standard LA/Hollywood bus tour. I want pics on Hollywood BLVD. I want to find John Wayne's star, lol!
Meanwhile, remember I am poor and unemployed....oh, did I not mention that? Yeah, I got yelled at by My Marine. I told everyone that when the cancer slowed me to the point where I was no longer a productive employee, I would get laid off (which is not nearly as much fun as other phrases containing that word...). So it's here. And I am broke, so anyone who wants to take me to lunch....feel free!
Which leads me to why I am posting at 0245.....before she went to bed, Jen said "Are you going to be ok on this trip?"
I don't know. It's a lot of stress to travel, even when it's fun.
BTW, if you are in LA....find me!
