Day Nineteen: We Made It

And I'm kind of surprised.....there was about ten minutes when I was sure we were going to miss our flight. As much as I planned for this, there's always things you can't anticipate - and a couple of those almost waylaid us too much.

But we made the flight -and of course, the advantage to running behind is that you don't have to wait to board or to take off.

And hey, if you don't mind the panic attack, high blood pressure, and headache that go along with it, I wholeheartedly recommend it as a way of travel.

We also made a last minute decision to rent a car, went to the wrong hotel, and of course we only had two hours of sleep last night. Which meant:

A) By the time we made it to the right hotel, it didn't make any sense to go Universal today; and

B) By about 330 pm I was completely and totally exhausted - a feeling which was accompanied by the  distinct sensation that I was leaving my body. It was simultaneously scary, giddy, and kind of interesting all at once. I napped for a couple hours and woke up feeling like I was oriented  back into the mortal coil again. Of course, that wore off, and I'm verging on crashing in front of this - so I'm going to sign off for now and sleep.

We did manage to eat lunch at a great Chinese place while we were waiting for our room to be ready, and had a nice late night dinner at Fish Bones a couple of hours ago.

Other than that, we've both just been napping and trying to prepare/map out our plan of attack for the week...I'll post as I can and hopefully there'll be more pictures. Unfortunately there were none today since I didn't want to add anything new to my camera until I was sure what was on there was going to come off.

Have a great Wednesday - even though I thought I was going to float away today, it beats the HELL out of work. So freakin' glad to get away.

almost forgot this weeks Ghost Adventures was in New Castle PA, about 2 miles from were we used to live there (for one year, all we could take of PA)

Never new there was a cool haunt in our back yard, aside from the house we lived in.

Ok I wont shut up tonight. I just watched this weeks destination truth and there was an ad for Haunted on Hamilton street. the world premiere is here in saginaw this weekend, its a two night showing. Apparently the annoying Brian, ex ghost hunters, brought a crew in to do two years of ghost hunts on hamilton street and below it in the old tunnels. I guess I live right next to a world famous haunt and didnt know it.

DAMN! I just watched the trailer, you BETTER be going to see that and telling me all about it. I also lived in Saginaw for many years and did not know about the tunnels or the supposed 'hauntings'.
You need to blog about that house on the other blog!
I'll be checking out your blog soon.

Jinx: Thanks! I'll be posting my adventures just as soon as my computer cooperates...
