DELAYED: I was delayed four out of four flights to and from Florida. We left 45 minutes late out of Ontario on Monday December 2nd but luckily we had a 3 hour window in Houston for our flight to Orlando. Then we were delayed out of Houston because there was a leak by the coffee pot and they had to drain all the water from the plane and wait for hand wipes for the bathrooms. We didn't get to our hotel until 1:00 am!
Coming home yesterday I was delayed out of Tampa for 45 minutes. The plane was late arriving and then the crew wanted more time before we boarded. I had a shorter time in Houston for my connection and at least 2 miles to the next gate. I grabbed a ride on their little carts and was in time for boarding only it didn't board. We had a plane but no crew and no pilots. The crew was delayed with deicing in Chicago and the pilot was late from Philadelphia because of weather issues.
So my 6:15 flight boarded at 9:00 pm so needless to say I got home late last night. Then I noticed that our power was out in our bedroom. Apparently Amber did something while vacuuming and blew it out but didn't bother to fix it. So at 1:00 am I was outside with a flashlight trying to open the darn fuse box. It took awhile because it sticks because it's painted with the house color and it's also high up.....I'm short!!!
So that brings me the the Codeine and Coffee. I was so exhausted, achy and a little bit angry that I knew I needed to be knocked out to sleep or my mind would have never shut off. I have outdated Tylenol with Codeine which did the trick, I sleep like a baby however I was a little groggy this morning. I am not a coffee person but felt I needed the boost this morning.
I have lots of mail to go through, packages to open and laundry to do so my point here is that I will not be catching up on reading posts today but I promise to get to them by the end of the week.
I have bowling tomorrow and some errands to run. I have to get started on my Christmas cards, the out of town gift cards and online shopping from the lists my children have given to me. It sure does feel good to have my trees done....so glad I did them before I left but I still have 10 bins of other decorations to put up!
I also have 29 programs that were taped while I was gone so lots of TV to catch up on too!
My trip was wonderful, lots of fun and heartwarming memories with my family. Mark made it to the UK on Sunday morning and will be home on Thursday only to fly out again on Monday to Seattle! So I will try to do Wednesday Hodgepodge this week (can't miss that!) and hopefully be over to visit with you soon.
Here is a kiss from Mickey in the meantime!
