OY! What a travel day…..I honestly don’t know what I would have done without wifi access, facebook, text, blogging, and netflix while sewing a whole mess of Hexies.
I spent 7 hours in the Monroe Regional Airport.
I arrived early at 1pm because I had to be out of my hotel room. I expected to wait around a while but..
My scheduled 5:05pm flight was delayed and delayed and delayed…and finally, my flight was delayed to 7:55pm --- AFTER the scheduled 7:20pm alternate flight that was running on time. At this point I had them book me on the 7:20, not knowing if the 7:55 would every really BE 7:55 ----what if it delayed further or got canceled?
I must say that once I arrived in Atlanta things were taken care of quickly. All we had to do was scan our boarding passes and hotel info and meal vouchers were delivered. Too late to want to eat ---it was after 10pm when we finally touched down in Atlanta ---I’m saving my meal voucher for breakfast before flying out this morning.
In the mean time, this is where I spent the night ---the Crowne Plaza Airport ---Not so shabby! But not that there is much to see or do either. Just good enough for a quick sleep.
My fligh this morning is scheduled for about 8am. I’ve got a 6am shuttle back to the airport ----alarm was set for 5am.
And off I go again --
I’m grateful to have been safe and warm and comfy in a big bed and all is well, albeit a bit delayed.
And I’ll soon be back home where I belong!
The traveling life ---every once in a while I am reminded that it is not all that it is cracked up to be.
And sometimes ---it all turns out okay!
