Erika & myself

This is the first trip in which I took without any of my family. Of course I went with friends, but I’ve always traveled with my sister. She didn’t come with me. It was a first and I don’t think it will be my last! Sorry Yvette, if you ever read this!  Anyway, Erika slept over my house because we had an early flight. We woke up at 3:30 in the morning to be at the airport early for our first flight of the day heading to Houston. Wow! I didn’t know if I’d be able to get up that early! It felt as if I had just gone to sleep! I hit the snooze button once, but the next time it went off I had to get up! I just had to!  But both of us were ready in less then 20 minutes.

Happy after getting our boarding passes
I also had to ask my mom to take us to the airport. I have never been to LAX that early in the morning. It was not busy at all. Maybe it was the terminal we were in. It was my first time flying with Continental. I really enjoyed their service.  We met my friend Klarke at the airport. She lives farther then we do and her friend dropped her off. When we saw each other we gave hugs, and then she told me she was at a bar all night and she was slightly tipsy. Also, that she didn’t get to pack right. Oh, and she forgot her money. I looked at her and I laughed. This was so not like her at all, that I just had to! But everything turned out good. The flight was uneventful and I slept for most of the flight. I should have saved my sleep for the connecting flight since we were in new planes and each seat had their own TV with free games. How sweet is that? I only got to play for about an hour because I was so tired! Bummer! Maybe next time…
