My sweet guy got sick last week and didn’t get to fly from Sunday until this past Sunday… an entire week with no cockpit time.
There was only a little bit of this:

But there was a lot of grumping around and being angry at not being able to fly. But homemade turkey noodle soup (with homemade stock) and a giant pot of tea helped him get back on his feet.

Tip: You can totally make tea in your coffee maker. Just put the loose tea in the filter.

Stir in some sugar or honey, then pour over lemon slices for sickies.

And now he’s feeling all better… he got to fly yesterday, one flight this morning, and he’s scheduled for two flights tomorrow.

    Glad hubby is feeling better–these pilots get CRANKY when they do not get to fly! 🙂 Weather is so nice here, I rarely see those withdrawals anymore. 🙂

    Did hubby got to VA Tech? I grew up in Roanoke…. 🙂
