Germany Day 8
I was just sitting around the hotel waiting so I decided to just go over to the airport early. I got there three hours before my flight so I decided to looking for a book in English. Most of the book stores only had one or two books in English but I finally found one with an English section. I bought myself an old Clancy book that I haven't read yet and I hate to say it but that was pretty much my day.
We got into Chicago about an hour early but all that meant was that I had an extra hour to sit and wait at the gate. I called Lisa and had a long talk and then I talked to Sarah for a long time and then I read my book. I finally got on the plane and got home but I was just a bit worried about the shuttle home. Lisa told me that Peter & Maren offered to come and pick me up but I didn't want to bother them since it would way out of there way but I'm glad they offered because if you remember I had lost my credit card and I was worried about finding a shuttle who would take my card number without the card. I had to ask four different shuttle drivers before I found one who would. Luckily he was $5 cheaper than the others too so that was good.
It sure was weird walking into an empty house. It is always so nice when you're gone for a while to come home to a family that is glad to see you but today there was no one but the cat. She did seem glad to see me though so that was cool. Kira had called me when I was just getting off the plane so I called her back on Skype and we talked for a while and then I made by self something to eat and now I'm going to go sleep in my own bed. I'm looking forward to it. It is good to be home, even if I am alone.
