I'm finally back home in Waterloo!
The flight itself was uneventful but I was a tiny bit nervous about getting on the plane because I wasn't able to check in last night. My airline (WestJet) changed their systems recently, and apparently the confirmation numbers no longer worked. There were also news reports saying that there were really long lineups at the airports because of this change. So I was worried that I wouldn't still have a reservation or that I wouldn't get through check-in and security in time.
As usual, I was worried for no good reason. Even though I couldn't check in online, my reservation was still in the system and I was able to check in at the kiosk. Everything went smoothly. Whew!
And now I'm home. I'm very tired because I didn't get enough sleep last night, but in some ways that's a good thing because I'll sleep soundly tonight. With any luck, this should mean that I won't have problems with jet-lag.
