The dogs have been dropped off at boarding. A good sign is that they were pulling me to get into the house. Had it been the other way around and I was pulling them, I would have been worried. I’m sure they’ll have a great time. I’m looking forward to email updates and pictures.
I checked in for my flight earlier today. I got the isle seat, which I wanted and am in the middle of the plane. I figures, why get the window seat when all you can really see is stuff during take off and landing. I’m also flying at night, not a heck of a lot to see, regardless. The sun night be starting to come up by the time I land, 615am EDT, but I have seen Toronto from the air before.
So, passed through security without any real issues. They took my tube of toothpaste though. It was 165ml, the limit is 100ml. Yes, I can see how that is a security risk. My other option was to check my luggage, for $25 and I could keep my $3 tube of toothpaste. Ummm, easy choice. I will be purchasing new toothpaste. The odd thing is that I was allowed to take two bottles, one shampoo and one body wash and they were quite large. Who knows…
Everything else was smooth sailing. I’m now sitting in a comfy east chair waiting for boarding. Another half hour. An hour or so from now, we’ll take off and I hope to catch a bit of sleep. I’m not sure if I will or not. If I don’t, I do have a bottle of 5 hour energy to give a boost in the morning.
I land, as I said around 615. I’m taking TTC from the airport to Kipling Station and then the subway downtown. I’m stopping off at the National office for work, just to visit and see coworkers that I haven’t seen in 2 years. I’m then taking a bus to St. Catharines.
It’ll be a quick trip, back to Calgary sometime on Sunday. Should be a good one though.
