Friends don't let friends fly through ORD or ATL...

Ok - so, I'm sitting in OHare for the umpteenth time this month. Maybe I'm exaggerating a little but I calcuated it this evening (because BOTH of my flights were delayed) and over 80% of the flights that I have taken during this four-week travel excursion of mine have been either delayed or cancelled. That's not at ALL annoying... (pick up the sarcasm there?)

Here is me two minutes ago: NEVERMIND - Blogger won't load the flippin' photo.

I was rolling my eyes. I don't know what's more annoying. The people around me or being delayed and not getting into CVG until after Midnight. Ms. Thang at Starbucks was less than stellar. I love it when you ask a question and instead of a simple "yes", you get that mumbled "uhm hum" and that look like you've got three heads. Or, Ms. Primpy who has to spray God knows what into her hair two seats away from me at the gate. Whatever it was, it left a cloud around her head. Pretty foul.... Plus, Blogger is being janky and it takes forever and a day to upload a photo. Can't a fat girl catch a break? My friends always tell me that I make these faces that let you know when I'm not amused. I'm sure I have that look right now. I think I'm just tired and my level of patience has definitely worn thin. Ha!

I do have to talk about the awesome Scrapbook Tour for just a minute. Ladies in St. Louis are absolutely AWESOME and VERY welcoming! SO, if any of you St. Louis ladies are reading this - THANK YOU! Especially Pat and Kathy who were amazing volunteer TA's! Big hugs to you girls!

Alright - well, I better quit my gripe fest - I hate feeling negative. Ok - I'm lying. I get a kick out of it. Ha! Just kidding. I'm trying to find some light in this flight delay crap. Maybe Nick Lachey will somehow walk up and be on the same plane. I'm sure THAT will really happen....

I just miss my family. Scott had a slight mishap that I will blog about later and I'm looking forward to taking Maggie school shopping and just cuddling with my peanut, Addie. Plus, there is nothing like being home with Scott and the kids. Hope to have a lazy Sunday with all of them.

Gotta run - flight MIGHT board in five minutes...

From your new friend Pat...so sorry to hear about your delays...bummer.Just when you thought the finish line was in sight, they moved that darn thing once again. I DO hope you have a RESTFUL and FUN Sunday with your family. I enjoyed the experience of being your TA, and have the utmost respect for you and your fellow scrapbooking associates that fly all over the place doing what you do. My hat's off to you guys. Thanks for mentioning Kathy and me in your blog, I'm sure Kathy enjoyed her time with you too!
Take care!!
