LAX. Yes, I've finally made it across the border. It was an early morning, getting up at 3am to make the 6am flight. I even forgot to get my boarding passes from the check-in counter. Just got the tags for my bags and walked away. The attendant came running up behind me with them in his hand. Great way to start. It was busy at the Saint John airport this morning... I've never seen such a line to get through security. But I made it to Montreal with enough time to run through customs and security and even go to the bathroom and do my shoes up. Sorry Grandma, they called my flight before I could phone you, (though it was 7:30 am). I had the emergency exit seat on the flight to LA, so I had lots of room even though the flight was full. I got to watch lots of short Canadian films. We landed in LA and I have lots of time to spare before my next flight (the big one). It kinda feels like Saint John in the summer here - 11C and fog (or is that smog?). Well I best get to work... can't take all day off.

So I'm in my final few hours on new brunswick soil. I'm preparing by watching "Finding Nemo". All my bags are packed and I'm ready to go.... nothing now for six hours but sleeping.... then I'll be able to watch the sunrise from the air. Well, I best be off to find my pjs and get the last zzzzs.

Ok, so this is my first post.... my childhood/university friend has a blog and as I was reading hers I was thinking that since I'm heading overseas in the new year, it might be a good idea to start my own so that my mom can follow my stories without having to send multiple emails. So here it is. And this is my first post - only so I can see what an actual post looks like on my site.
