It was a very long (and rough) red eye. Our seats wouldn’t recline, there was turbulence and I irritated my back trying to sleep with my head on Ben’s lap (I also probably started some rumors). IMG 3781 thumb John Wayne Airport to Sarasota Red Eye

We left a very empty Orange County airport last night at 9:30pm and arrived at Atlanta around 4:45am. Then, we have a 4 hour layover. I tried to sleep, but it was pointless. So I tossed and turned on a bench for a while until I decided to explore the airport. Luckily, it’s a BIG one!IMG 3784 800x600 thumb John Wayne Airport to Sarasota Red Eye

I also bought one blueberry cake munchkin. I wanted to try this flavor, but didn’t want to overdo it because I know there is a lot of junk in my future.

And, when it comes to cookies – neither to do I.IMG 3812 800x600 thumb John Wayne Airport to Sarasota Red Eye

It’s okay, this is all part of my plan to my make New Year’s Resolution more impressive – “Find a way to roll myself off the couch and dust the crumbs from my belly” is better than “Lose 10 pounds”.everyone puts few pounds christmas ecard someecards thumb John Wayne Airport to Sarasota Red Eye
