Our wake up call was at 8:00, bags out by 9:00, depart at 9:30.  Everything went smoothly until it was time for the bus to come and pick us up.  There was a Run for Cancer going right past our hotel and the bus couldn't get to us on time.  When the last of the runners went by the bus picked us up.  It took about 30 minutes to get to the airport.  We were the first ones dropped off at Terminal 1.  Everyone else was going to Terminal 4.  We found the US Airways counter, got our tickets and checked our bags.  Then we went through security and walked all the way to our gate only to find out they wouldn't let us in until 11:30.  It was only 10:30 so we walked all the way back and found a place to sit in the very warm terminal.  We could only get 15 minutes of free Internet, so I checked my email.  Then I sat and read my book.  I realized while I was here that I have read this book before but I couldn't remember how it ended so I kept reading.  When it was close to 11:30 we started walking back to the gate.  They had moved the security check further down the terminal.  We had to show our passports and boarding passes again.  We sat and read until the plane started to load.
