The trip that wasn't meant to be; Clearly

Well, the day started bright & early at 5 am. I was up and dressed, checked our flight and the weather (kinda iffy, but hey bring it on.) Got the little people up and dress and fed and we were on the road at 6:45 am. The sky was alight with some beautiful lightening and it was raining, but hey we were rolling along.

Got to the airport and parked at SunPark which I highly recommend. They come right to your car, help you unload your luggage and even helped me with the stroller. Cool. Well worth the few dollars for the tip. (they also graciously let me out of the lot at no cost since my flight did not work out. Very cool. Will park there again!)

Got in to the airport and got my stand by boarding passes. Then waited. Turned out between the time I checked and the time arrive at the airport, the flight got full, mmmmm. Not sure how that happened, but it did. The joys of stand-by.

While I could have tried for the later 2 flights, I decided not to. Too risky, when the last leg was already almost full. So we came home.

The downside is I do not get to see my friend and she is stuck with a gallon of soy milk and a clean house. (Although, H called to say that Atalanta is under a ground stop. No flights going in or out.) It is better to be at home, wishing you were where you had planned to be - rather than stuck in Atlanta.

The upside, I know the jogger fits thru the X-ray machine, the little people were very very well behaved and I can push the jogger and pull my little rolling suitcase at the same time. I am superwoman today :)

I am so glad I am at home........ and not in Atlanta.

It is great to be a superwoman, ain't it?

It sure is! Now if I could have just done something about all this pesky rain - which totally trashed my parade :(

i felt like that once, but i was in the wheel chair loaded up with goodies from hawaii (not knowing the hip was broken and it's not bursitis) and i still had room for the vodka a workmate wanted from duty free. didn't i look classy. it's a different type of superwoman. i'm in a wheelchair, but i can carry my luggage and still juggle 2 bottles of vodka. i felt a bit dodgy.
