Going to get my Sweetie

Recommended Posts

After I got off work on July 27, 2007 I left for the Memphis, TN airport. First there was a hold up on the highway which made me to freekout thinking I would miss my flight. Get to the airport only to find out that due to bad weather my connecting flight would be moved up. Get to Atlanta and have to spend the night on the bench in the airport for 9 hours because the flight was cancelled until 8am on Saturday morning. I fly out of Atlanta to Newark and took a shuttle from Newark to JFK which is an hour drive but you can site see on the way. My fiance had to wait for me for 5 hours before I finally got to him. We hugged and kissed and said lets go because our return flight was to leave at 3pm and it was now 1pm so we had 2 hours to get to our flight. We had to take a shuttle back over to LaGuardia and we got there on time and flew out to Atlanta which our connecting flight was moved up later about an hour and a half. We made it back to Memphis and drove home from there which was about an hour drive. We are home now and fully adjusting to our life together. My fiance is trully remarkable. He loves the Popeyes chicken and the beans and rice. As time goes on I will be posting about his adjustment to American life. So far so good my friends. My fiance is finally Home where he belongs.
