What’s in my head :: Yale – 2nd weekend

Big day today.  Arrival Day.

Finally, the kids come and we can get down to business.

I’ve pulled airport duty which means I’m leaving in fifteen minutes to Bradley.  I will sit in baggage claim and corral teenagers as they come in, helping them gather luggage then attempting to keep them relatively quiet and entertained while we wait for enough folks to fill a bus.

Rinse and repeat.

The bus holds 20 people and we’re expecting 100+ campers so you do the math.  It makes for a very long and potentially taxing day.  The bad news?  I thought I took this job to have a break from corralling and entertaining teenagers.  The good news?  I don’t have to lift anything.  It’s a testament to the type and amount of work tasked of me these past days that I consider not lifting anything good news.  Eheh.

As I mentally prep myself for today, how about a few random thoughts:

  • I’m beginning to get the lay of the land and can more easily navigate to and from important places like The Noodle House, Walgreens and Anchor.
  • My personal room AC is a godsend at the end of a sticky, sweaty day.
  • Communal showers ain’t that bad when you like your suite mates.
  • I have gotten used to the motorcycles at night.  Crazy!
  • Aly was right; people like me.

the girls

Wish me luck, my friends.  It’s gonna be an exhausting but amazing day!

  1. Corraling kids? At an airport? Good luck! Hope you had time to spoil yourself a bit appropriately afterwards!

      There was no spoiling to be had immediately after, but I plan on leaving campus this weekend for wine tasting in NH with my sis and her hubby, so here’s hoping that rejuvenates me.
