What a week.  Hurricane Sandy wreaked havoc on the Northeast, cancelling flights all over.  I was at the airport on Sunday when the beginning of the storm took place.  We experienced high winds and rain but none of the devastation like NY, NJ and Connecticut.  The airline that I was covering Sunday had people on hold for 3 hrs to rebook.  So, the passengers came into the airport to have their flights rebooked.  Most were understanding and patient but some were complete jerks.  

I went 12 hr on Sunday without eating, drinking or going to the bathroom.  The line of people never stopped.  I had come in at 4:30 am to work until 8:30 am for a guy.  He ended up calling in sick, leaving me there to face those passengers with only one other coworker who could work this particular airline.  Finally, at 4:30 pm, I clocked out so I could go to my kids' piano recital.  To say that I have had better days is an understatement.  

Throw in Halloween and the week was just crazy.  I did dress up this year as a vampire.  I draw blood as a volunteer once a week at a free medical clinic and this year Halloween fell on my day.  It was fun.  And then I dressed up for the kids trick or treating.  It was very cold Wednesday night.  

So, it's Saturday and things are getting back to normal.  We're having people over for dinner tonight.  Pete's old mentor is in town. It will be a cooking marathon today.

Happy Saturday, everyone!
