Omaha airport...destination...Toronto

I woke up this morning comfortably.  My first flight is at ten in the morning locally.  I managed a warm cup of coffee with my lovely and saw the boys before they were off to school.  I had picked up some new drawing pads for them and gave it to them this morning with the understanding that I want to see some pictures upon my return describing their week.  This is not a foreign concept but more of a mutual understanding.  To date, they love art and music so I guess my influence is working.  I told them that I would do the same. 

This time, I brought my mini laptop along with my work laptop in order to more easily facilitate blogs and also attempt to manage photos.  I would rather not keep that personal stuff on my work laptop.  I also set up a flickr account to help manuever the photos easier.  We'll see how this works or if it becomes too much of a hassle.

Omaha's airport is small and I travel often enough that I recognize and greet the security staff and kiosk staff by name.  That is more true for the kiosk staff.  The security staff seems to have a higher degree of turnover.  No lines at check in, two persons deep at the security check, no line for the kiosk and 80% available seating at the kiosk.  I was able to pick which table near a power outlet that I wanted.  I chose the one with a good view at the large flatscreen (which I have yet to look at.....just did).  This is the way I like to start my travels.  I know full well this won't be the case elsewhere today.
